A little help from my friends?

Hi!
I’ve been thinking, seen as I’m intent on blogging more & reading your blogs more (and hopefully commenting too!) That I’d really like to do a page of blogs that I like as well as facebook pages (and maybe pinterest pages too if people would like?)

I’m hoping that to make it a bit easier to gather links together that you guys and girls might be willing to post your links in the comments box here?

I’m open to links for blogs, pinterest,  facebook pages and etsy shops.
You are more than welcome to post your craftsy/ravelry shop links in the comments box too but I won’t be putting them up on the links page (not just yet anyway)

My comments are set to need approval, but I will approve them so that your links are public and then other people can see them. And I’ll start putting together a linky page :)

I hope this works!

Oh and because I don’t like doing an entry without a picture here’s an ocean waves blanket update ♡

Ocean Waves Blanket

Pattern by frayed knot (search ocean waves blanket/frayed knot on craftsy and you’ll find it)

A little wave :)

In my attempt to blog more instead of just posting pics on Facebook I’ve discovered the wordpress android app. So, here I am offering a bitesize entry of what’s been on my hook today.

It’s my current “pick up, put down” project for when I get ten minutes to just crochet. Mostly I’ve been doing it in the day when the boys have their morning nap. Little H has his nap on the sofa so any project that requires intense concentration or having scissors/sewing needles out is a no go. He goes from fast asleep to Grabby McGraberson before you even realise he’s awake!

Pattern : Ocean Waves Blanket.
Pattern Author : frayedknot
Pattern is available on craftsy, ravelry & etsy. (She’s on Facebook too)

I’m on my second attempt of it. The first time I did the first few rows in the midnight blue and when I changed to the red I realised somehow I’d dropped 2 stitches so I frogged it and decided it was more sensible to do the first couple of rows in a colour where I could see the stitches!

I’m using Rico Baby So Soft and I love it! I know I say that about every yarn I write about, but if I didn’t love how squishy they were then I wouldn’t buy them! But as an acrylic goes its beautifully soft and I haven’t had any trouble with splitting or managing to stick my hook through the middle if the strand! I got mine from Black Sheep Wools. If you’re on the look out for a new yarn to try and are willing to take the word of an internet blogger do try it!

Right time for sleep but just one last picture… MJ & I going yarn shopping :D
