Hello Wonderful Readers, how are you all today? I for one, am very glad its the weekend and its also half term so we can chill out a bit and breathe again.
The news is…. I got the job. Mixed feelings about that – I’ve had a lovely time staying at home and being a “proper” mum but my days were numbered sadly. Hopefully the job I have got will fit in fairly neatly and not be too full of pressure and stress, fingers crossed. So I start on 5th November and this is my last week of freedom. Better enjoy it to the max!
Its a while since I did a CAL post and I did get a bit behind when things got busy and I got worn out, but I’ve been busy and caught myself up again so here are my results…
Block No19 – Lacy cross
Not much to say about this one – fairly straightforward.
Block No20 – Colourful Bobbles
I did not like this one – too much changing colours, it really slowed me down. Lots of ends to darn in too. Yuk!
Block No21 – Blue Shades
Well, mine wasn’t in blue shades lol! I thought it would be a start in the middle and work out block but I was wrong. Pleasantly surprised to find it was the reverse. Looks a strange shape but it is correct – guess it needs blocking. Strangely curly too!
Block No22 – St Petersburg
The picture in the book lied. The author had used variegated yarn and hadn’t changed yarns where the pattern required it. Very misleading! So it was very difficult to see how this should turn out. This is it. Quite chunky but I think I like it. First time doing front post and back post trebles so interesting.
Block No23 – Bars and Diamonds
Another interesting one that had us crocheting into the side of a treble.
Block No24 – Italian Cross
When I finished the first two colours of this block Mr Patch heard a cry… “Oh no… I’ve crocheted a fried egg!!” I was going for a daisy effect but all I could see was fried egg lol! Looks better with the purple around it.
Here they all are together…
The next few in the book are Christmas themed but I really don’t want some random Christmas blocks in my blanket so hopefully if they are not red and green and white they won’t look Christmassy!!! Time will tell.
Right off to get organised – Little J has a party to go to this afternoon. Enjoy what is left of your weekend everyone.
