I can highly recommend the pattern! Made in Katia Panama 100% cotton with a 3 mm hook.

So kid's shoes it was and half the price too, woopee!
CROCHET NEWS- you said it! Let's get back to it? THIS blanket or more particular these colours I like in a new magazine that I got treated to...
It's from this book:http://www.amazon.co.uk/Connect-Shapes-Crochet-Motifs-Techniques/dp/1603429735/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1382222260&sr=8-1&keywords=EDIE+ECKMAN
Back to a library book: this is inspiring me to make a runner for my rocking chair which sadly languishes in the garage these days...
This was my COMPLIMENTARY copy of Inside Crochet : issue 46 on the shelves everywhere in the UK RIGHT NOW!!! And only until 25th October so hurry hurry hurry....? See page 56?!

THIS below I worked while catching up on an amazing WALRUS programme which I had missed earlier in the week:http://www.bbc.co.uk/iplayer/episode/b03dzjx5/Natural_World_20132014_Walrus_Two_Tonne_Tusker/
I'm working a playful circle into a granny square using Appleton's crewel wool ( 2 ply) and a 3mm hook.
Appleton's has 421 colours in this wool but I'm not sure I could wear a shawl or scarf made in this as it's quite scratchy to my sensitive skin? Will wash it with washing conditioner/softener and see what happens before I take off on this project. Funnily enough I bought the shade cards for Appleton's in 1982 when I was toying with the idea of tapestry or fairisle knitting with as many colours as possible.... See the colours here:
And on a stripey end note: voila my new SOCKS! I needed new ones to wear with the running shoes...
treatment for plantar fasciitis and Morton's neuromas. The stripes make me SMILE.
M&S boy socks age 4-10 or size 12-3.5.....Well I'm not a boy and nowhere near age 4-10?!
got to LAUGH!
