It is ages since I did any work on my blanket. I managed to do a few rows this weekend and it felt good to be doing this again. It is going to be a couple more months I think before it is completed. I dare not add up the number of hours I have spent on it so far. What I did not realise, when I decided to use Tunisian crochet for this project, was how compact the stitch is. This means that it takes a long time for it to grow. Perhaps a larger hook would have been better. However, it will make a lovely dense and warm blanket, when it is completed. Probably well worth the wait.
Anyway, whilst having a break from the blanket, I have added a few more flower brooches to my Folksy shop. These are crocheted in a lovely cotton yarn, which I got from Three Bears Yarn, who are a small company based in Lancashire. They have some lovely colours.
I am being told that now is the time to advertise Christmas items. I am usually on the back foot in this respect and leave things until the last minute. This year I am starting early and have already started a garland, which I hope to share with you soon.
