Cold Weather – Must be Blanket Crocheting Time!

October 17, 2013

riverside 'sculpture'

Hiya. How’s things with you? Hope you are all well. So what have you been up to? We’ve been busy at Nelson HQ enjoying our time off, seeing friends and family and generally trying to relax. NB the pic above was taken by my beloved hubby during a walk along the Clyde a couple of weeks ago. I liked it so much I decided to use it in this blog…no other reason. I’m not going to talk about walking along the Clyde because we haven’t done it this week – the weather has been cold, wet and windy and you do not want to be walking along the exposed side of the Clyde in that kind of weather unless you are dressed head to toe in super warm waterproofs.

Anyway, I haven’t totally done nothing this week. I’ve gutted the house, had my parents over for lunch (with two nieces and a nephew…my kids had a ball playing with their cousins whilst me, mum and dad caught up), took my kids to the westend to return a jacket and have lunch, and I’ve been busy stash busting by crocheting the blanket pictured below.

Hubby thinks I should have turned it into a cardigan or something, but I like it as a blanket. Will come in useful over the winter months ahead when I’m watching telly…me and the kids just love snuggling under a blanket on the sofa. Besides the yarn was bought to make the boy a cardie, which I did and he won’t wear it because he says it’s ‘scratchy’…he chose the yarn, I spent ages knitting the flamin’ cardie and HE WON’T WEAR IT. Sigh. No more knitting for him methinks!!

Anyway, just wanted to check in and say hello. I must fly. Til next time!!
