Now this bag excites me. A lovely sack of expensive wool. Oh yes, Rowan CashSoft Chunky. Mmmmm, cosy and soft. It's actually discontinued now so I bought it on eBay. My plan is to crochet a ripply blanket for the bedroom- a nice simple chevron pattern from Vintage Crochet. It's the Bee Clinch pattern from the cover. Can't wait! Now I need to know how to crochet those lovely cushion covers too. You can never have too many cushions in my opinion! Especially as we're using them as Albie barriers. He now pulls himself up onto things before crashing to the floor and I could do without him crashing onto the tiled hearth.
I also have this sweet little pile of 25g chunky skeins that came free with a crochet mag, along with a 5.5mm hook. What to make with these?! Perhaps a breakfast set from Vintage Crochet? Tea cosy, cafetiere cover, egg cosies. Some bunting? I just don't know! I think they'd make a lovely ripply something. Another cushion? Or a little granny square? Hmmm. Ideas on a postcard please.
After that, well, Albie needs a nice green and blue ripply blankie, and a granny square, prairie style a la the Cath Kidston cowboy print. I also desperately want a granny squares blanket for the sofa in the Stylecraft special DK, so many more skeins and colours need to be collected. And that's the year ahead in crochet pretty much sorted! Now I just need to find time to squeeze it all in.
