Almost November & thinking about posting stuff.

Oh my goodness, it is almost November which means that it is almost December which means that it is almost Christmas!
So, first things first, planning.
List making,  look at your calendar and note down the following (in chronological order):
~ what birthdays are there between now & the end of the year
~ what events are there for the end of the year things such as end of school year, parties
~ what do you need for these events - teachers gifts, Kris Kringle gifts etc
~ then add to the list all the people that you need to buy gifts for & those that you need to buy that special card for.

Highlight all those that need to be posted.
Now, what are you going to make/buy & post?

Know your stripes - Sirdar Crofter DK

I've been quietly working on a blanket, I'll pick it up every now & then and add a few rows.
I have enjoyed watching the colours come together, you can't predict how they will turn out when you first pick up the ball so I thought I'd do a little colour chart of how they work up.
Below shows the before (the yarn of ball) & the after (the squares) side by side. I will of course, show you more details of the blanket at a later date, in the meantime, enjoy my stripey yarn piccies!

This is me showing you that I am right.

Ever had someone doubt your ability? I have. I wrote a pattern & published it for FREE back in 2012, despite many people successfully using the pattern, every now & then I get someone say it's wrong. Well it's not wrong & now I'll show you why.

Taa daa: The Yarn Talker Dress!

I'm totally impressed with myself!  I designed, knitted, then frogged, then redesigned, then frogged & redesigned (several times) this dress for my baby girl!

Although I keep falling behind in my Crochet Mood Blanket, I keep track of the days & after an 'intense crochet session' day, I manage to catch up again!

Taa daa: some pretty coasters

So, what does one do with a 50gm ball of cotton yarn?  Well, let's see, I could put it into my stash & let the yarn stash build up & up or I could do something right away, right now...
