It's Friday

Even though it's dull and grey......and raining outside I've still got that Friday feeling. Today is also my last scarf post - you've probably had enough by now.
More soft and cosy, more giant buttons but this time in a lovely shade of blue.
I also promised yesterday to update you on a crochet project. Back in May I posted about my efforts to learn how to crochet. I made a start by learning how to do a granny square.
The plan was for it to be a cushion cover but it turned into....
.....this and it's still growing although it's reached such a size that using oddments of wool is no longer an option for completing a round. I had been taking it to my stitching group but it no longer fits easily into my basket. I suppose in the winter months if I work on it I will have the added bonus of it keeping me warm at the same time.

Another project that is still going although sadly neglected in favour of scarves is my jumper. I really must make an effort. I started it in August and at this rate it will be August before it's finished.

Thank you for the interest in my scarves :-) Once I have them in the shop I'll let you know.

Have a great weekend.

Beautiful makes, I just love that scarf, it looks perfect, cosy and warm but not too much bulk for under a coat. Would you mind if I borrow a photo for the monthly makes round up post? xx

Now I see what has been keeping you busy. That is some blanket it's really good. You'll be teaching me to crochet the next time we meet :-)

Looking forward to the scarf updates - and the everything else you make updates too! My goodness, the crochet is going to be big enough for a bed :). No wonder it keeps you warm! Lovely colours ...
