CROCHET: Friday Night Rainbow Stripes










My granny stripe blanket is coming along very well, with the colours working so nicely together. I'm using Stylecraft Special DK which I buy from the Wool Warehouse in the UK. It is the loveliest, squishiest yarn with beautiful rich colour and best of all, it's very affordable. Plus, shipping from the UK is cheaper than posting a parcel locally - seriously!

I started this blanket last week and I am enjoying crocheting a few rows each evening. I'm coming up to the 'no-man land' of blankets, where you seem to keep crocheting and crocheting, but it doesn't feel like it's growing. Know what I mean?

I cannot wait to finish it, so I can make another. Crazy, huh?

I joined in my friend Wendy over at Sugarlane Designs for the Friday Night Sew In, but I think crochet totally counts. 






After a busy week away, hubby got home from work last night and the kids were excited to finally see him in person (not just on Facetime). Yay! After dinner, we sat down and watched Fantastic 4. My son seems keen to work out with Marvel film came first and watch them in order. There's our next bazillion or so, family movie nights sorted then.

We're off to the Sydney Royal Easter Show today, so I'd best get my walking shoes on so we can get going. 

Hope you have a lovely weekend friends.
