It’s been a while hasn’t it.
I have been wihout my computer since 22.August which has been pretty stressful! I have had a shocking time with Apple, which I won’t go into now, as it will raise my blood pressure.
So to celebrate being back, here is a two-for-the-price-of-one post.
I am joining Cathy and her merry band of gardeners with In a Vase on Monday today. Her post is gloriously autumnal. Mine looks more like summer, but my late sown antirrhinums have been such good value from late summer til now – and the colours go so beautifully with my latest crochet project.
I am following Helen Shrimpton’s 2022 Crochet Along (CAL). The pattern is called Virtue. I love her patterns as they are so well tested and totally reliable. They come with video tutorials and there is a supportive Facebook group as well.
The colours have been inspired by flamingoes, a favourite of my niece whom the blanket is for.
The snapdragons in the vase have been teamed with fronds of eucalyptus.I love this combination of shapes and colours.
I am using a 4.5mm hook and Stylecraft Special DK
Starting from the centre:
Spice, Tomato, Vintage Peach, Blush, Parchment, Lincoln, Storm, Duck Egg, Cream, White, Clematis, Soft Peach, Buttermilk, Stone.
Gosh – 14 colours! I didn’t realise I had used so many.
I will be adding more in future rounds.
The photo shows Part 1 and Part2 of the CAL.
❤ It’s good to be back! ❤
