This time last week, I wouldn’t have thought there would be an FO Friday this week. However, last Sunday night I picked up my Coastal Crochet CAL blanket and finally started on the border. I’ve only been putting it off since September! The thought had been really daunting, knowing that there were so many stitches…… Continue reading FO Friday-25th January
It’s Friday 13th, but I’m not feeling superstitious. In fact, I’m feeling very happy as I have finally finished the cosy stripe blanket.

If you are a regular follower you may have noticed that WIP Wednesday this week was missing. I’ve been on a serious mission as I needed the satisfaction of completing a project. Last weekend I measured my daughter’s chevron blanket and it was 78cm long, I was aiming for 1m so I knew if I…… Continue reading Finished Object Friday!
