Brrrr!!! It's soooooo chilly and cold here in Cork this week !!!
It's the perfect weather to snuggle up on the sofa, close to the fire,hook in hand, adding a few rows to some colourful crochet.
I thought I'd update you on two of my crochet projects; here's a super-quick visual update on my
Wavy Blanket. I just started edging it last night. My dog Cooper has taken a BIG shine to this blanket
and I have to spend a lot of my time shooing her off the end of the work when I'm crocheting!
Here she is 'assisting' me below !!

Ok - maybe not enormous but big enough for snuggling up in
and simply wayyy too big to lug around in your handbag for sneaky crochet sessions outside of the home
(I always find that's the fastest way to finish any crochet project super quick !!)
It's been a great way of getting rid of some of my stash of yarn though.
By the way, if you are looking for some inspirational ideas to use up YOUR yarn stash

I'm already planning my next blanket - I'm thinking granny squares & a bit less girlie colours!!
Hopefully it'll be finished before the week is out and I'll take some more pictures then for you !

to make a little Christmas present just for myself.
Well, here's a quick look at the results now that I've finished !
A quick stripy hat and cowl made up of double and single rows of trebles. I just made up the pattern as I went along, can't even remember what hook I used !

|A wee bit of soft focus editing does wonders to highlight the crochet flowers & diminish the 'laughter lines' !|
I picked the colours to match my most beloved Orla Kiely bag, not an exact match perhaps, but close enough! I wear the cowl a lot more than the hat as its so soft and snuggly I tend to leave it on even when I'm indoors! Lots of people have admired it so I'm pretty happy with it as a project but the yarn was quite costly (about 40 Euros) and I'm not sure that it LOOKS that expensive
