After spending the last few weeks preoccupied with designing wrist cuffs (a few more patterns to come my sweets!) I wanted to switch off my brain for a little while. Put myself in someone elses creative hands!
So I've been happily working away on Lucy's Granny Stripe blanket. It's now at that lovely foldy stage. I think I'm up to 42 rows? And more to work on tonight!
|I copied Lucy's list of colours from her blog and matched them up with I already had in my stash. Only needed to buy a couple of extra colours.|
The Sonofaguns and I had pancakes for breakfast this morning. Nothing too Masterchefish. Just one of those Shake a pancake thingos. With a selection of yummy toppings like Sovereign Hill Lemon Butter, Lingonberry Jam and Honey.
And while I soaked up those wonderful, hideous calories, I read through some of my crochet magazines. It was soooooo glorious!
Pancakes slathered in butter and jams.
A mug of coffee. And then another mug of coffee!
A stack of crochet magazines.
And nowhere else I had to be except right there, at that table with all those marvelous things!
Sonofagun No. 2 drew Minecraft/ Middle Earth inspired maps.
And I found a Star Stitch tutorial in a copy of Crochet Magazine. So I decided to try out this pretty stitch I've seen so much of.
And started making it into a biggish coffee mug coaster.
How was your Saturday morning?
