Happy-go-crochet

Haha, no, I will stick to my brand name but I have finally learned how to crochet and I'm really enjoying it!

I have always struggled with crochet... After sooo many years of knitting I couldn't get my head around how to hold the hook and use my hands – they just wanted to knit!

But at KAN last weekend (oh btw it was brilliant! If you live in NZ you should go next year!) I took a class in crochet for beginners and this week I have done quite a bit of practicing.

I started with just practicing the stitches. And yes, it's a bit wiggly and askew but that's ok!

























Then I moved on to 'ripple'. Lucy at Attic24 has got a very good pattern if you would like to give it a try.




















I love Lucy's rainbow blanket and would love to make one but will try to be sensible and start out with a cushion. I'm thinking the red, orange and hot pink shades of my cotton yarn would look great!


And one day I WILL make a blanket with all my cotton shades!

  3. Do you realize there's a 12 word phrase you can communicate to your man... that will trigger intense emotions of love and instinctual appeal to you buried inside his chest?

    That's because hidden in these 12 words is a "secret signal" that triggers a man's impulse to love, admire and guard you with all his heart...

    12 Words Will Fuel A Man's Desire Impulse

    This impulse is so hardwired into a man's brain that it will drive him to try harder than ever before to take care of you.

    In fact, fueling this mighty impulse is so essential to getting the best ever relationship with your man that as soon as you send your man one of these "Secret Signals"...

    ...You will soon notice him open his mind and soul to you in a way he never expressed before and he'll see you as the only woman in the universe who has ever truly understood him.
