A solid square

Todays square is a 15cm (6in) pale blue solid square, based on the pattern from the lovely Gingerbread Lady.
I likely will be making a lot of these in different colours. Or just the one.
I haven't yet decided exactly how this blanket will be constructed, but I have a feeling it will be alternating squares of plain and pattern, creating diagonals.

(And yes, that is the shadow of my hands and the camera)

And now, since it is gone 1am, it is bed time.

We went to the local church fete the other day, and while there scored a perfectly good coffee table for $5. I figured this meant I needed some coasters.

Unfortunately, I'm not a fan of doing intricate lace work - it annoys me - so I figured I'd look for something I do like the look of, and I can use some cotton thread I have. But, to get the right gauge, I used a larger hook than I usually would for the cotton thread, and used a plain of white and a pastel variegated thread together.

So, some photos.

These (okay, not these exactly, but this sort of thing) will also be available in my Etsy store and my MadeIt store.

My next WIP

While I'm finishing off the scoodie for Miss R, I thought I'd get ahead on my next WIP.

I'm making coasters to go on the coffee table. I made 5 last night, and have to make another 3 tonight.

An update of the scarf-hoodie

The scarf is completed, and the hood is half assembled.
Now I just need to finish assembling the hood, attach them to each other (I'm very tempted to sew buttons on the hood so it's removable...) and then Miss R can (finally) have her scarf-hoodie!

Miss R's scarf hoodie - a wip

Just so we all know what I'm attempting to finish this week, here is a photo of the work in progress (wip).

These are the hood and the scarf for a scoodie (scarf hoodie) I'm making for Miss K's friend - they're in those colours so she can wear them to school, while in uniform, and not get into trouble.
I'm attempting to crochet another 53 rows before the Bathurst Eisteddfod, which I hope Miss R is performing at.

First post

Just to try an make myself actually get some crochet done, I've created this new blog. The idea is that I either finish off a project each week (Scarf-hoodies, berets, slippers all require completing), or I do a square a day for a new blanket.
Stay tuned for updates.
