September has arrived very swiftly it seems this year. Thankfully though it appears to be at it’s best so far with cooler nights for sleeping comfort and warm days with a fresh breeze. Its my husbands favourite month of the year and its easy to see why.
I am looking forward to making crochet blankets. They are not the thing to make in the summer especially one as hot as we have had this year. I started a little while back but am pleased to report that my Cosmic Cal 2018 is well on the way, with part 1 completed.
The pattern is wonderful and free from Helen Shrimpton at Crystals and Crochet. I have been following the videos but the written pattern is free to all and can be found on the website easily in UK and US terms.
As ever, I am using my go to yarn, Stylecraft Special DK. Cheap, reliable and many colours to choose from. You can’t go wrong with this yarn. Colours chosen from my yarn stash. I am trying to not go shopping at Woolwarehouse!!!
I have also been experimenting with Instagram. My daughter has been honing her drawing skills over the last year and it has been truly inspirational to see how she has progressed. She felt that I should be using Instagram so that I can get an instant “hit” of likes that should inspire me to create more. She was right, as with all things social media, it is very addictive! I have enjoyed being able to upload a speedy picture.
