Anyone noticed how woolly the blogosphere’s been getting lately?
Marie’s just taken up knitting, Karen’s having a snood giveaway (enter by Wednesday!) and just check out the amount of wool-related planning over at the Crafty Christmas Club… Must be an autumnal thing. Sun sets earlier, leaves start falling, crafters work their way through huge piles of wool.
My wool affair goes back a month or so, to just before my holiday. See, a few days before the trip, having more or less sorted washing / ironing / packing / making the house presentable in case any potential buyers came along while we were away, I had an attack of craft withdrawal. Sure, there’d be lots of things to see and do, but what about all the in-between times – whole days at sea, afternoons sitting out on deck, all those hours that Mr B spends in the shower…
So I found myself at the checkout in Hobbycraft with £40 of wool. Oops.
As well as my chunky snood, I decided to try my hand at crocheting granny squares. I remembered tearing a page out of Mollie Makes for a flower design, but could I remember where I’d hidden it? Course not. So I turned to Google and found this Sunburst Granny Square pattern:
What do you think? Just experimental so far – not totally convinced on this colour way, but I really really like the pattern. (And funny enough, I found the Mollie Makes version yesterday – and it’s almost exactly the same.)
Have you migrated to wool yet?
