Mr. B’s birthday!

It’s been a busy few days as Mr. B turned 30 on the 19th
He can’t believe it I think and suddenly feels old. I didn’t have that feeling when I turned 30 last year. In my mind I woke up a day older than when I went to bed which is the same as every morning. Only it happened to be a day that marked a passing of another year.
I remember when my mum turned 40 and it was a big thing to her she didn’t want everyone knowing it was the big 4-0!

Crochet wise not much has happened because the days have been filled with celebrations and family and friends and the evenings have been spent mostly trying to keep on top of housework!
I’ve done a little bit on the spiral granny bobble, which is getting so big that it really is only a little bit that I managed! The neonatal blanket is being frogged so I’ve stepped back from it for now so that I can tackle it without being frustrated at myself for running out of the blue! And the pastel granny stripe, oh how I love the pastel granny stripe!! ♡

Incase you’re not familiar with the granny stripe, the pattern is by attic24 and can be found > here <
All I am doing differently is the colour arrangement, which I am mostly doing it this way because I’m being lazy clever and not fastening off at the end of the purple rows to save on sewing in at the ends (I’ll hide my work with the border)

I put this picture of it on Facebook the other day and it had 428 views (allegedly, I’m not sure how accurate fb’s stats are!) Anyway, here it is for you too :)

It’s going to be another busy few days ahead too as Saturday will be Little H’s 3rd birthday (I’ll probably do a post for/about that) and as it was Mr. B’s 30th I’ve arranged a weekend at Butlins Skegness for us and some friends. It was a suprise but he knows about it now!

I’m planning some hooky action for the journey which will probably be at least 5 hours with stops, last night I searched through 8 crochet magazines (simply crochet and inside crochet) 4 books and 4 pattern booklets for inspiration for a blanket and came up blank. (As well as searching pinterest, craftsy & ravelry!) The lady who’s asked me to make it sent me a picture of one she’d found on google that she loves but it’s not a great picture so I can’t really see it. In the end I zoomed in as much as I could and decided to do a doodle on my phone…

The multiples just don’t sound right so I’m thinking do multiples of 6+2 and do the first row in double crochet? What do you think? (More to the point is the doodle even legible? !)

Apologies in advance if I’m now around much over the next week. Do keep an eye on fb for random photos as it’s quick and easy for me to upload.
