It is a long while ago that I did any crochet apart from a quick flower corsage for a present or two. That was until I followed a link to the lovely colourful Lucy of Attic 24. I have been so inspired by the wonderful, bright things that she has made and when she posted the pattern to her latest project, the Summer garden granny square blanket
I just had to have a go and now I'm addicted! The pattern is easily memorised, which means that I can pick it up and do a couple of minutes here and there, waiting in the car for the children after school, while I'm waiting for the dinner to cook - anywhere! They are so quick to crochet and it's not long before you have a satisfying pile of bright little squares ready to be joined together.
I have little bags of wool dotted all around the house and am completely addicted! I did try using different combinations of colours, but I have to admit that I love the originals the best and so have gone back to those.
I'm determined that this won't be a work that gets abandoned in the 'I'll finish this someday box' and am really excited to see the finished result. My husband will laugh at this point as he doesn't understand how I can be excited about wool - but I can and I am and so there!
....the more observant of you may also notice another project from Lucy's blog that I've been inspired by to try and make my myself!
