Catch up




I know,i know I have been a very bad blogger. My mum was moving house and had to severely downsize which took up a lot of my time. Then the house she was moving into had been very badly treated for a very long time. I really wish I had thought to take before and after pictures as the transformation was unbelievable' it was a lot of hard work but worth it.

A lot of things kind of got forgotten about when this was all going on. Including knitting and crochet so the A-Z of knitting socks was put to one side managed to start this sock for D had to be pulled out a few times as this was my first attempt at toe up but am now half way up the first foot will get back to it when I can, but will give up with the challe
nge this year and hopefully it will run again next year.

When sorting out mu Mum's house a very old friend came to stay as my
Mum no longer had space for him.
This is Bryan the snail( spelt this way as this is how my brother spells his name). This cookie jar has been around a long time and I remember it from my childhood no my kids are enjoying getting biscuits out of Bryan like I did as a child.
Also out of my Mum's came this large throw which had holes so was no longer useful for the purpose it was meant for so I decided th
at it was going to become a round rug for my living room.
I cut strips out of it then wound into 3 large balls like this.
I am using a 9mm hook and this pattern. I will show you the results next time it slow going now as its getting heavy.

I have now lost 2 stone.

Will be back soon with more of my projects.

Congrats on the weight loss and I can't wait to see the finished rug. I'm in awe of people who can crochet :)

How is the rug coming along? I crochet a few small rugs for myself and friends, but I never learned to use a pattern.
