I started to make two crochet items
My daughters loved their hats and mitts I made for Christmas. They are not into knitting, they have busy lives, they just missed each other at Christmas at home, maybe in the future. They are both together now having a catch up time in London and to trendy places. I have two unfinished pieces to show. I started crocheting a scarf in a pattern of bobbles, with lots of colour It may become a snood I haven't decided. Then I liked the idea of using up all my scraps of wool, as I hadn't made much headway with my stash of wool, to make a stripy Afghan. I got a bit carried away with the chaining as I wanted it to be big enough. It is about 80" and a pick up and leave it project. I had to unpick the first bit in blue as it was too tight with the second row of stitches luckily it didn't unravel I have started crocheting evenly into the blue stitches. I do like to knit when I have time I have sewing projects too and a January Sale in my Folksy one of which is this Crochet Throw. I have photographed these items indoors today as the weather is not good.
