Crocheting for me!

I can't believe Christmas is over! I hope you all had a lovely day, spending it however makes you happy. For the first time ever, I celebrated Christmas at my Auntys house. It was all very festive and lots of fun. There was plenty of food, drink and cat cuddles.  I received quite a few crafty gifts including some hedgehog fibres yarn, a couple of crochet books and a gorgeous miniature needle book necklace. I feel very spoilt.

You'll be pleased to know that I finished my cousins socks! It was a frantic Christmas Eve spent knitting and then I got up early on Christmas Day to finish the toes. Luckily, he loves them and thinks they're amazing. Phew! 

So now I have all this time to crochet for me. Yay! Yesterday I crocheted a big chunky granny square cowl that I just love and know I will wear lots. Then I started on my blanket.

I've decided that I want to crochet a blanket worked in different motifs. Amazingly, a post appeared on Facebook to say that Moogly (who I just love) are doing a crochet-a-long this year on just that theme. I then discovered that they did one for 2014 to (which I completely missed - where have I been?) So I've been working my way through the 2014 squares to combine with the 2015 ones to make an enormous blanket. 

So far I've made 4 squares and they are enormous - about 9.5inches each! 

It's good fun and I'm really looking forward to working on a long term project.
