A bit of crochet

Oh what will I do when I finish at LBi on Wednesday – I’ll have no five day a week bus and tube ride. Ooh, but I will have two days a week to Notting Hill new job – more on that soon – very very exciting… and three days a week to look after my own clients, so I shall have to designate an hour each morning and an hour each evening to ‘pretend commute time’ to keep up the crochet.

I’ve been making… a green square, from this book


a purse in ecru, from this book


a little blue purse (just needs a button), also from this book


a pink scarf, which I just made up,


a card purse, which I also made up, based on my travelcard wallet,


and a brown scarf, which was hiding at photo time (since found), and which I also made up.

Yesterday I crocheted all day – a bag in my new LINNET malt grey yarn, which was undone and rewound after dinner. And now I’m working on baby shoes and socks and discovering the marvels of Ravelry.

    Your crochet is so lovely and even and I love the small items you have been making. I bet they are from Japanese craft books!? I think I crochet to tightly as mine always curls up at the edges… must try harder!

    (Just catching up a bit on your blog!) I adore your crochet! I have done so little of it lately. I actully took it up so I could have some handwork to do that didn’t involve dangerously sharp needles when Lilly was little. I would nurse and crochet in bed when she was falling asleep!

    Glad to hear you have more energy these days and I hope your pregnancy continues to be a happy and healthy one!
