Finally I have a new laptop and I can get on-line to blog easily again (I hope). I tried to have a go from my ipad but I couldn't get pictures up and what use is a blog without pictures? So here I am tinkering around and hoping I can get things to work how they should as there has been much crocheting going on quietly here in the background. The zodiac blanket has been my main focus this year and although the monthly parts have not been too onerous this year I have fallen a little behind as life with Lou can sometimes be a bit all consuming!

I thought I would test my new technology out with a quick picture of Bertie - here he is today sitting on the bed posing for a picture, he does love having his picture taken!

I hope to be back again very soon with more pictures and progress to share.

Blanket love!

I know it has been a very long time since I wrote anything on my blog and I can only apologise. Several things have caused blogging to be a problem, firstly Bertie chewed the cable to my laptop and as the battery is duff it has to be plugged into the mains to work. I now have a very dodgy replacement cable which uses an adapter that I am not very happy with so I only use it when I have to (hopefully a new laptop isn't too far away now) secondly I didn't actually have that much to say as my life is a bit of a mundane routine at the moment punctuated with blanket crochet which has been making slow progress! My kaleidoscope blanket is now up to October and I am fairly near to the end of that part but at the end of January the last Natural Dye Studio blanket club arrived and I was determined to keep up with it this time and complete last years at my own pace. The news arrived over Christmas that NDS is closing down this month and I was very upset, I know it sounds silly but there have been some pretty low points over the last few years and my NDS blankets have been a huge comfort to me both in the making and in the arrival of the packages so I was glad to be a part of this years Zodiac blanket. Lottie has said she would love this blanket so that is one of the reasons to need to keep up so she can have it as soon as it is done. Here is the finished February part, I just have to add on the march motifs now:

I hope everyone had a Happy Easter and I will try and be back more often with my blanket news this year. S x
