Rainbows and Poppies

Bought this little book 200 Crochet Blocks by Jan Eaton from Spotlight the other day because...(whispers)...I'm not really enjoying my Granny Squares crochet class. The ladies and the teacher are very nice but it's too much about how to hold the hook and not enough just get in there and do it) 

Just to let you know, When I did that link to the bookstore I discovered it was more than twice the price at Spotlight! Ripped off! Hate that.

I've made a few out of it already. Great, clear instructions. Lovin' the book.

Fruits of my labors. I'm into Poppy mode at the moment, hence the color scheme and the flower blocks. 
My husband can't seem to get his head around the fact that I'm crocheting blankets like his great grandmother used to do. Watch less sport then, buddy.

Here's the one I'm doing at the moment. Tres fiddly, but good for working on when not wanting to watch that bloody awful Underbelly Razor (too much blood and violence for me, oh yes, indeed!) as I can't take my eyes of the wool!

And here is my Freeform scarf so far. Looks like a bit of a dog's breakfast in attractive co-ordinating colours. It's a bit nicer in real life and I love working on it, so if I don't like it when it's finished, I'll just gift it to some artsy type I know that will appreciate it!

  1. I was tossing up buying that book a while back and ended up buying the crocheted borders one instead.

    Nothing beats a good granny square in my humble opinion.


Lovely to know someone out there is actually reading this!
Go on!! You know you want to...!
