There are so many things I should have been doing, but..................... I got sidetracked. It really is my friend Jo's fault, I blame her entirely. She came to visit me on Saturday, and we spent a wonderful day together. And she showed me this beautiful blanket she had made with a new crochet flower pattern.
I really really wanted to try that one as well. You see, I am not very good with patterns, either written or with symbols. I am much better at watching somebody actually doing it and copying them. Thats what we did. Jo showed me how to crochet this sweet flower and also how to join as you go, which I had never been able to get my head round.
So, once she had gone home, I just had to try it out for myself. I had yarns left over from a blanket I had made some time ago, and I spent Saturday evening having a go. And I carried on having a go on Sunday. And Monday morning.
And I am thrilled to bits with the result. It really is nothing special, only a scarf, but I am so pleased I have learned a new pattern and managed to join the flowers as I was crocheting. The colours are pretty pastels, perfect for Spring -
I might just have to get out some of my nice wools and make a lankie..........
