Time to get started on some crafty stuff!
I went into town today, just for some fresh veg and milk, but as I was walking past the fabric shop an invisible force dragged me inside ... once I was there I thought it was only polite to buy something!
The yellow and pink spotty fabric remnants will be used to make pillowcase dresses for charity. The wool is for me to learn to crochet and also to make little hats for the Innocent Smoothie's Big Knit 2012. All three projects are part of my 52 things.
The sewing will be easy enough and although I'm not very good at knitting, I will be able to manage the little bobble hats. The biggest challenge will be to learn how to crochet. I'm going to do a ripple blanket using this pattern. I know that the sensible thing would be to start on something easy, but that's not me! If I get really stuck the fabric shop runs loads of workshops and there is also a knitting/crochet club every Tuesday morning (which luckily is my day off!), and a sewing club every Tuesday evening so there is plenty of help on hand!
So, watch this space.... I'm starting with the red wool first.
