Oh dear, oh dear, oh bloomin' dear and a few choice words in between! Last weekend I made the horrendous discovery that for the last 2 months I have been doing my Irish Rose crochet cushion WRONG! I should have been joining the outer roses much closer together but the pattern was so vague at that point and the photo not detailed enough, so I have been merrily crocheting away oblivious to the fact that I should have double the amount of roses. How dumb am I? Hugely. But in all honesty, I have been struggling to keep the momentum going - struggling to stay in love with it so in one way it has been a relief that I could stop and return to something more enjoyable, like this..
the blanket that belongs to the lovely Yvonne which I spied in one of her photos years ago. She then kindly photographed it for me. I started this blanket last October and then temporarily shelved it for my 'all time bestest, most favourite crochet blanket ever - the one belonging to Petra Boase. I have so many on the go I really must try and actually finish one.
But fear not, I will do something with my Irish Rose crochet and will make it into a cushion. Meanwhile I'm really enjoying playing with colour again and not just pink. Oh it's pure bliss.
