Today I am thinking....

I want to make a garment!  Without sounding too cockey I do believe that its time to move on from grannies and try something a little more adventurous.  Don't get me wrong I love my granny and have plans for more but I think its time to dip my toes in garment territory.
I really fancy something lacy and summery...
oooohhhh japanese and charted pattern.....maybe not
 {pattern here for chart literate crocheters!}

This is more like it....crochet in one piece! tried and tested by many ravelers

Just one slight teensy problem....

Out of yarn boo hoo!
School uniforms to replace first {already!!}
But I kept my idle hands busy with scrappy bits...

Two odd shaped balls {teehee} for safe indoor play for my footy mad great-nephews
an alien type bunny thing
and a cute puddy-tat designed by the lovely talented Fi at Marmalade Rose
{whose blog is very gorgeous I might add}

Well I must go, window cleaner here - needs paying £12!!! how did that happen?!!!
Think thoughts of spring my dear friends!
