Hope you’re all Happy Crocheting, I have been crocheting all weekend. My friend was round one night having a glass or two (bottles!) of wine with me and she was eyeing up my crochet yarn stash. It’s starting to resemble a massive colourful beanbag in the corner of my living room lately. Anyway she started selecting the colours she liked, which were all bright and in your face. She asked if I could make a cushion for her out of them, in my tipsy state I said ‘of course!’ The morning after when I saw the colours chosen I didn’t have a clue how I could crochet something that didn’t look garish! I did some searching on the web and came across a lovely little granny square cushion that had been made using african flower granny squares, then another quick search to find a granny square pattern I liked and away I went.
In August I began asking people if they wanted anything in particular crocheted for Christmas (Yes, that’s right, I said August – the older I get the more crazy organised I become. 10 years down the line I’ll be doing my Crochet Christmas prep in January!). My sister asked for some pillows for her living room which is beige and duck egg blue. This was quite a quick project and I think I managed to complete it within a week.
