Crochet for beginners

For anyone interested in taking up crochet, there is a great magazine out here. You get the magazine, two balls of wool and a crochet hook all for 99p! Of course I already know how to crochet and I thought it may be a bit basic but I've actually learnt a new stitch, this textured stitch.

It's basically one row of dc and then the next row is 1 dc and 1 tr repeated. I've used the chunky yarn provided and it looks gorgeous in this raspberry colour. The photos look a little dark, sorry! It's the lack of natural light lately.

The idea is to build up squares to make a throwover. Just the job to keep you warm, although still no snow here yet!

Seeing Stars!

Hi everyone, hope you are all keeping warm in the big freeze! I was hoping to post some beautiful photos of snow but as yet we seem to have escaped the worst of it. We had a fairly heavy snow shower last week but most of it has melted now. Just cold weather and patches of ice.

I have been busy with more bunting orders this week. I was sure I had already posted this picture but obviously not, just thought I had but didn't! Anyway, it's a 10m length of Cath Kidston Stars and Gingham, bit of a marathon but lovely all the same!

More snow is forecast, so perhaps I can post some pictures soon!
