Holiday project update!


I took the opportunity whilst on holiday to try some different crochet projects, whilst also working on some of my knitting projects!  This is what I managed to achieve :-

P1030064 Project Name : Bainbridge Scarf :: Yarn – Louisa Harding Grace Silk and Wool

P1030065 Project Name – Toasty Snood :: Yarn – Jaegar Extra Fine Merino DK

P1030066 This is a sample of the Crochet Bag made by Attic24.  I was using some scrap yarn I have to make sure I get the concept before starting the actual project, although I am liking these colours together!

P1030070 This is a pot holder I made with some left over Rowan Handknit Cotton DK.  It was really easy to do and only took 2 nights.  Could probably do one in a day if I sat at it!  Am liking small projects!

P1030073 P1030074 I have always wanted to be able to crochet the Ripple pattern but for some reason have never been able to get my head round it!  That was until I found the instructions on Attic24’s blog!  The women is a god!!!!  Voila, my ripple sample, am totaly psyched to make a whole blanket!!!!

I also managed to weave in the ends of a few of my granny squares, but still have about 3 to do!  I think I will make a point of weaving in ends at the end of each square rather than leaving till the end!

So craft update – done!

July – Hopton


Wow, July already! I am just back from a week in Great Yarmouth, well Hopton to be exact!  We decided to rent a caravan for the week and take Luke to the seaside, etc etc.  It was lovely to just get away and have a bit of a break!

My family came and visited on the Saturday after we arrived and we took them into Great Yarmouth to have a look around.  They seemed to have had a good time.

We spent a fair bit of time looking around, and whilst Luke seemed to enjoy most of it, there were some things he didn’t!  We went to the Sealife Centre, the miniature village, Pettis Petting Farm, and couple of other places.

Luckily the weather was very kind to us and it seemed to rain at night or late afternoon, which was great!  Here are some pictures of our holiday!
