Apologies to all of you who are waiting with bated breath for the unveiling of the elusive monster softie ... I jest, of course! But I am currently awaiting a delivery of some gorgeous red fleece, so the softie is on the back burner for a while.
On a happier note, I have been trying and failing to embark on a crochet adventure. I have attempted without much success to complete a granny square under the guidance of a lovely old lady at my upholstery class. I may have tried her patience as she kept doing it for me!
I have since found a brilliant tutorial from little tin bird for granny squares and have managed over the last few evenings to create a reasonable, if I do say so myself, granny square. I intend to continue until my wool runs out and hopefully I'll have a pretty blanket at the end. Here's hoping, anyway.
