Crochet Crazy!

Thank you for your kind comments regarding Basil. We still miss him like mad, but every day is easier, although I still expect to see him coming very slowly around the corner whenever I am sitting here in the study!

As promised, some crochet updates. For you pure knitters, apologies for my going over to the dark side, but I am telling you, it is much quicker that knitting, although you can't concentrate on the tv quite as much!

OK, firstly, I am getting along with the hexagon blanket well. I can see quite a lot of mistakes, but am choosing to ignore them!



Secondly, my Babette colours.



I am winding them all into balls at the moment and then I need to sort the colours into numbers and then I'm off!

I went to a training day yesterday where there were 45 or so of us leaders in a hotel conference room. It so reminded me of the film "The Witches"!!!!! So lucky a small ginger boy didn't come wandering into the room............

Secondly, I'm so sorry about Basil, we lost our old cat at age 17 and it does leave such a big gap.

And thirdly, love the colours for your babette, they are pure scrumptiosness!

Hello Liz, me again.
WOW I just checked out your link to first4yarns, my goodness, what an absolutely GREAT discovery, thanks SO much for that. I thought Cascade was only available in US, its great value for 100g balls and the colours, wow. I think I can see where my next yarn stash is coming from, I am deliberating another ripple or another granny, oo decisions decisions!

Thanks again
Lx
