A Little Bit of Crochet

This week I started a new job. At this time of year work in a garden centre dries up a bit, and for the last three years I've had to find alternative employment over the autumn/winter. So this year I've ended up working in a bookshop. It's only part-time, but there are a few hours coming up at the garden centre for bare-root hedging and tree deliveries, so I should still be kept pretty busy. At the moment though I'm on part-time hours, so I've been getting stuck in to some crochet.

This is a smaller version of Attic24 Lucy's Big Blanket, to fit a single bed (sigh!) rather than a double one. I think it will probably end up being 7 rows of 4 big squares (28 in total). I had thought 6 rows might be enough, but it's starting to look like that might be a bit small. So 13 down, 15 to go!

As you can probably tell, my photography skills need some work, and, as a brand-new blogger, so do my posting skills. I'm working on it, really!


  1. What great places to work, garden centre and bookshop, only a wool shop could beat that. Your crochet looks very pretty, keep going you'll get there.

  2. WOW! I love your blanket. You've used such a beautiful combination of colours. Blankets just seem to go on forever!
