Thanks for calling in.
With all the dashing about, the crochet has been coming along slowly.
I thought I'd try out the Stylecraft Extra Special DK yarn with its flecked appearance. So far I've turned 5 balls into plain solid dc squares and edged them with parchment ready for joining together, just one more ball to go before I can start arranging them into the desired pattern. Although the colours are great, with the added addition of the fleck, you can't really see the crochet pattern as well but we'll see what it looks like when it's all joined together.
The blankets are stacking up now!
