Thanks for all your lovely comments and your patience, too! I love to welcome a number of new followers, glad to have you here!
As always, I hope you will find some inspirations here!
Since my last blog post quite a few things have happened, and I feel like I should apologize that it has taken me this long for an update. Sorry folks!!!
But you know how it is:
|Not all that wander are lost!|
One thing was that I went through various tests and the end exams for my Dutch classes....
Another that I had a dental operation on my jaw a week ago and have been slowly recovering from it, it still hurts a lot, though the swelling has gone down a lot.
And last, but also with a lot of impact, our cat Twinkle has gone missing recently which was very much out of character for him since he never ventured outside the house (and he didn't know his surroundings here in Belgium). We have tried everything we could to find him so far, but without success. Twinkle is the brother of Jasper and we had both of them since birth. We are very upset and miss him.
Well, to show you what I have been up to, I decided to break it down a bit. I'm still having computer problems and this makes blogging more difficult. So instead one long catch up post, I will try to do a few more following this one. Promise!!!
Making a baby blanket
This is what I am currently working on, much to my own surprise. A girl in my Dutch class is expecting her first child, she knows it will be a girl. So I spontaneously offered to crochet her a blanket, I hadn't previously thought about it. So I started on Tuesday, 12th May. Initially I said I would do it over the summer, but as I got started, I thought maybe I can do it quicker?
So I started making crochet squares, pink and white ones from Veritas Apilou acrylic yarn.
First I was aiming to make 2 every day, meanwhile I have stepped up to making 5 a day!!!
|My initial idea: 5 x 9 squares (a rectangle) - 45|
|Then I saw that a square blanket might look better|
|So I adapted my idea to make it 7 x 7 squares (49)|
I hope you enjoyed this (long overdue) post. Let me know what you have been working on, I must admit that I seem to have a backlog when it comes to reading blog posts and leaving comments... hopefully things will get better soon!
Please leave me some comments, I love hearing from you all! And to the new followers: How did you find my blog (just curious!!!)
Meanwhile... Happy crocheting and knitting!!!
