Normal service has been resumed.

Everyone is finally well in the house and normality has resumed. It feels such a relief to be allowed to sleep and knit and just spend 5 minutes by myself occasionally again.

I have been enjoying my crochet but I'm sure it won't be long until I want to do something beyond the basic granny square so I have treated myself to this book

There are some lovely ideas in there as well as some that just aren't me, but I think I am going to try one of these next. Hopefully they won't be too complicated for me.

 I also love a gorgeous celtic knot square but I think it may be beyond me for a while. As for the crochet I have been doing, I am just glad to pick it up again. I have got another skein of black for my stained glass blanket, so I need to ball that and get on with finishing it. My large granny square isn't too far off done I don't think. And then there is Lightnings blanket that is going to just be 6 large squares. The yarn is King Cole Riot and it is fab.

 Knitting wise I started a new jumper for me a month or so back, but this one is going to be a longer term project for when the boys are asleep. I was surprised how quickly I managed to pick up the pattern repeat.

I have tried to get a close up but the picture doesn't do justice to this yarn. It has a slight sparkle to it, I have a long way to go but I love this jumper.

This totally looks like something my grandma crocheted for me! (Different colors though.) She'd make squares and then put them together to make blankets. How I wish I knew how... Congrats on trying something new.

It really is so easy to learn. I only started in the new year, and youtube really is your friend. There are some really good tutes out their which make it so much easier to learn.
