Bloomin' Crochet Along.....a new project on my hook.


Good morning, I didn't post last week for Bloomin' Crochet Along but I have something to show you this week.


I've started another Fairly Isleish Fair Isle Style Cardigan., don't you love the name of this pattern!!!! I'm making this one for my friend's Granddaughter, who's birthday is at the beginning of January. 


I thought I would give myself plenty of time  but I forgot how quick it was to make. I started this at 6pm on Tuesday evening and worked on it until midnight, I'm half way through finishing it. It does help that it's worked in Aran on a 6mm hook.

I'm using Drops Nepal, which is lovely to crochet with but it will definitely need blocking as it looks quite small, it has loads of stretch though.I had some pinks leftover from my first one and went with grey for the main colour, this time. 


I'm linking up to Chrissie and Marrianne's Crochet Along, pop on over to see what everybody else has been up to, this week.


Lastly, I want to show you these gorgeous decorations, that were sent to me from Jules from the Little Woollie blog. Aren't they gorgeous, this was part of the Christmas Decoration Swap which was organised by Ladybird Diaries. Thank you for organising it, Marriane and thank you, Jules, for my fun, colourful decorations.

Thanks for stopping by, have a great weekend.
