At a loose end

I’m not a fan of this wintery weather but with a roaring fire going it is quite nice to sit with one’s rug on one’s lap and darn in ends.  OK, so nice is maybe overstating it but it warm and cosy.  With the TV on I have spent several hours with a fine crochet hook and a darning needle and my loose ends are disappearing.

I have also had instruction on how to avoid so many joins in the joining by stitching the squares into long strips – ie joining in pairs but then just joining that pair to another pair by using the same piece of thread.  I can see how it would work but it must be very “floppy”. 

If I find myself making another blanket with squares I might try it.

Actually I am doing some squares.  With this blanket I had bought some DK baby yarn to use but the squares came up smaller.  I have unpicked my brown edging and done another round in the baby yarn.  Friends have a baby due at the end of March so I think I shall make a baby blanket.  I will try the smooth joining method though as I think that will be nicer for a baby.

I work full-time but am fortunate enough to be in business with a friend and have flexible working hours - although based around 9 to 5 I can escape on sunny days to head to the garden! I have a partner, two step-daughters and a menagerie! I enjoy most crafts and love to try something new.
