Nearly There



Hello all you sweet people ,

Just squeezing in a quick post , in what seems to be turning out to be a rather busy week.

It's been pretty chilly in these parts this week . Lots of frost and scraping of ice off the car in the morning. I took this picture out of the car window on my way to work yesterday (I was stationary at the time :0)



As you can see it was pretty foggy. Maybe I should have cropped this image , hang on ....there , that's better......


Would you like to see how my blanket is coming along ? I do hope so ...This is what it looked like on Monday........



I'm loving doing the border ! So nice to be able to whizz along doing simple double/treble clusters . It reminds me of my granny stripe. And in the cold weather it's so nice to snuggle under my blanket as I work :0)....



This picture was taken today , cosy crochet in front of the fire. An open fire or log burner would be even better , but the flames on my gas fire looked very homely and I certainly enjoyed sitting in my warm lounge , hooking away on a chilly day :0)

Hope you are keeping warm .

  12. Hey Jacquie, the blanket is coming along a treat, the colours are just gorgeous.
    Love the foggy photos, makes me want to find a nice cosy blanket to snuggle under.
    Cool weather here, needed to dig out the Winter jim jams, but still T shirt weather during the day.
    Have a great weekend to come.

  18. Your blanket is beautiful - I am doing almost the same one - I'm just joining the squares together but I might pinch your idea of a coloured border - I was worried about running out of my white wool - thanks for the inspiration XXX

  31. Love love love your blanket! The colours are beautiful! I am fairly new to crochet and was wondering what kind of yarn you use for your blanket? I am in the process of making my first one for my Mom but still unsure of the best yarns to use xxx

  32. Hi, Jacquie!
    I hope you don´t mind, but I´ve crocheted a stool cover just like yours! I love it and couldn´t resist doing mine...
    I´ve written a post and linked to your blog, informing that you´re the "author", OK? :)
    The link to my stool cover is here: http://linhasimaginarias.blogspot.com/2010/11/isto-e-o-croche.html
