Blanket solution!

 Well the shock's worn off and I've learnt my lesson.
That being, write down everything!
And thank you for the kind advice and sympathy, I think I'm not alone in my crochet dilemma am I!
The general consensus was to make two blankets which I've gone with and so far I'm delighted with the result, have a little look see what you think. 

By the way it's still going to make a large cosy, snuggly blanket.



I've really enjoyed making these little grannies.


I just kind of made up the pattern myself.


But I dare say there's a pattern out there somewhere that's the same!


Anyway I thought I'd write it out for you.
Just remember make a note of 
EVERYTHING!!!!!



I'm calling it.
Daisy Granny Square
So here goes.
I'm writing this pattern in UK terms

I used Stylecraft Special DK and a 3.5 mm hook.

These are the stitches I used 

Sl St (slip stitch)  insert hook into stitch, yarn over, pull the loop back through the stitch, then through the loop on your hook.

Tr (treble) yarn over hook, insert hook, yarn over, pull the loop back through the stitch (three loops on hook), yarn over and pull through two loops on hook (two loops left on hook), yarn over and pull through remaining two loops.

Htr (half treble) yarn over hook, insert hook, yarn over, pull the loop back through the stitch (three loops on hook), yarn over and pull through all three loops on hook

Chain 4 stitches, slip stitch to join, ring formed.

Round 1
Chain 2 (counts as 1st treble) tr into centre 7 more times. 8 in total. Slip stitch to close ring. Fasten off.

Round 2
Using white yarn join with a knot close to stitches and pull through to the front.

Chain 2 then 2 htr in chain space. Chain 1. *3 htr in next chain space, chain 1* 
Repeat from* to* all the way round slip stitch in top of chain 2.
Fasten off.

Round 3
Using a scrummy colour join with a knot as before.
Chain 2 then 2 htr in space. Chain 2 then 3htr in same space. Corner made.
3 htr in next space.

3 htr, 2 chain, 3 htr in same space (corner)
3 htr in next space.

3 htr, 2 chain, 3htr in same space (corner)
3 htr in next space.

3 htr, 2 chain, 3 htr in same space (corner)
3 htr in next space. slip stitch into top of chain 2 to join. Fasten off.

Round 4
With white yarn join as before then.
Chain 2, 2htr in space.
3htr, 2 chain, 3 htr in corner space.
3 htr in next space.
3 htr in next space.

3 htr, 2 chain, 3htr in corner space.
3 htr in next space.
3 htr in next space.

3 htr, 2 chain, 3 htr in corner space.
3 htr in next space.
3 htr in next space.

3 htr, 2 chain, 3 htr in corner space.
3 htr in next space.
Join with slip stitch to top of chain 2.
Fasten off.

Phew!
I'm amazed how many words are needed to explain what is a simple pattern!
Hope it all makes sense, please, please let me know if I've written gobbledegook.
Let me know if you use the pattern to make something lovely!
Enjoy the rest of your week and if I don't get back before.
Happy Easter.

Things are looking up!

Well hello! I'm a little bit back and it feels good! So what have I been doing? Weeeeeeel alot of things have happened since we last spoke. Let's have a round up. I spent quite a few months coping with fatigue and depression which meant a bit of a standstill with  pretty much everything. Glum times. Life was quiet, slow, gentle. I had to be careful and kind to myself but gradually I felt better found my energy and got back to normal ish. I found gardening and crochet two of the most therapeutic things to do. But the most restorative activity I've been enjoying is, well take a little look.


Meet
 The Right Honourable Hector Albert Schnauzer


Possibly the happiest dog in the world.

He certainly make me happy, Who knew I'm a dog person! If you want to reduce your stress levels get a Hector! I thought long and hard before getting him, found a kennel club breeder and have spent a long time socializing and training him, he's been a complete joy so responsive and eager to learn. Just the …

Five Photo Friday

Last weekend saw another trip to the woods,  more beautiful bluebells and wild flowers.  It's so wonderful spending time outside in Nature.






I've also been spinning some gorgeous merino. Nice and thin!


Topped off with a little crochet play in the sunshine. Whilst I recover from my day out in the woods!  Yeah a whole week to get over one trip, Chronic Fatigue is RUBBISH!

Still least I can sit in my beautiful garden. How's your week been, what have you all been making, doing, enjoying? Do tell! Love ♥Sue♥

Half term, it's been too short. It's been all about these gorgeous boys. Beautiful Brodie, two weeks today.

And Finlay the most fantastic two year old EVER! That's true, cos I'm his Nana. ♥
Finlay's birthday cake. Just so you all know, I'm never making a Thomas cake again, fiendishly tricky!

 We also spent some time checking out Storm Brian. Very stunning he was too.


That's it, end of another holiday. Roll on Christmas then!!!!! Love ♥Sue♥
