I recently came across a cute crochet owl tutorial on the Bunny Mummy blog. Feeling confident that I was up for the challenge, I gave it a go. The pattern was beautifully written with lots of pictures. I had no trouble creating my own little owl. I'm planning to make a few more as they would make a great gift.
Last week I started making a granny stripe blanket. I probably shouldn't have started a new project until my granny square blanket was finished, but I just couldn't help myself.
I just love these colours. The wool is Moda Vera Marvel 8ply in 100% acrylic. I got it on special at Spotlight. I'm using a 4mm hook and I am so enjoying making this blanket. I've only done six rows so far, but I'm having so much fun making these treble clusters.
My colour sequences are totally random which is a first for me, as I usually don't do anything random. I found the pattern over at Attic24. This is such a fabulous blog. It was after I started reading this blog that I became interested in crochet. I'll be back soon with some more progress pictures.
