I've been a busy bee lately, desperate for a bored moment to be honest, but hey ho, time doesn't stand still for anyone. I do however, always have time to stop and crochet or knit and lately it's not uncommon for me to relax with my yarn whilst Alice is doing her homework in the same room. Year 6 has cranked up with the ol' homework so most evenings are spent around her desk whist I chill and quitely hook/knit away (not doing her homework for her by the way!). She seems to be much more effective with me in the room, kind of like an "on tap" dictionary, mathematician (?!), bod for bouncing inspiration off... you get what I mean. It's so hard sometimes when I see her making an obvious mistake but I don't interfere with this as I realise how important it is for her teacher's to see what areas she needs to work on. I will however admit to helping her glue and stick in the more imaginary tasks because the creative side of me cannot resist.
Anyway, I've started gobbling yarn away in my new chevron autumn blanket. I have'nt done a big project for a while now and I am LOVING it to say the least, so exciting seeing the chevron's developing. I'm most definitely happy hooking again!
The pattern is from Jane Brocket's beautiful book, The gentle art of knitting found here. yes I know it's knitting book but there are two patterns of the hooky kind too. Thank you Jane xox
It's definitely a yarn gobbling pattern but oh so worth it.
It's time to add some more colour's I think. Thanks for popping in and welcome to all new followers too, I do try and visit all your beautiful blogs.
What yarn are you gobbling up at the moment?
