About Me

My photo

Welcome to my little corner of the internet! I'm a single mum with a beautiful daughter and I started crocheting 4 years ago when I quit smoking, I'm a huge fan of the granny square and mostly spend my free time making blankets as well as occasionally trying to expand my crafty skills :-)

Long walks and lots more photos...

We've had such lovely weather this weekend!  It finally feels properly like Spring and it's been perfect for taking long walks and photos :-)
We walked up to Pontypridd Common yesterday-it's a beautiful area complete with a Stone Circle and a War Memorial (I posted distance shots of it yesterday) and we spent a happy few hours walking and chatting and playing with the new camera...

















This camera takes such a gorgeous photo-I really enjoyed playing with the black and white and I think I got some lovely shots :-)  I may have a new obsession!


In crochet news, I still haven't found a border I'd like to try on the blanket.  Well, that's not exactly true, I'd found quite a few in the new book I want to try but they all need a specific stitch count as a base and 1) this blanket is SO BIG 2) Due to the special squares, some squares have an odd stitch count which means that although they look the same length, they're not!  Which makes it really difficult to work from a border pattern :-(  Plus, I can't say any of them REALLY leapt out and grabbed me.
So, I'll try some border patterns on the next small lap blanket/baby blanket and see what I can improvise for this one.  I'm desperate to have it properly finished-the cats keep nicking it and Myf has no qualms about wrapping up in it as well!
