A few days away and looking forward ...

I had a lovely few days away last week, staying at my sister, Aimee's, house in Norwich and also visiting the coast of north Norfolk. I hadn't been to stay with her for over 2 years and it was an absolute joy to see all the crocheted items that I had gifted to her and the family over the years. The blanket above was the second granny square blanket I made and it's good to see it still being used!

I also spotted my sample for my Luxury Crocheted Floor Rug by my niece's bed so snapped a photo of it too! It's over 5 years old and still going strong - Erika Knight Maxi Wool is amazing! This pattern is FREE in my Ravelry store, you can find it here.

We spent a day around Holt, Blakeney and Salthouse - such a beautiful little corner of the world. It left me feeling refreshed and ready to crack on with pattern writing too!

I'd started a pair of mitts before I left and found the break helped me focus and finish them with ease. I love it when a pattern behaves itself and works out just how I hoped! I'm really pleased to have received yarn support for these mitts from Vicki Brown Designs - 75% superwash merino/ 25% nylon sock yarn in Teal - it's such gorgeous yarn to work with!

The next steps for this one are adding the additional sizes (I'm hoping it will work in at least 4 sizes, maybe more) and then sending it to my testing team to see how they get on crocheting them. I look forward to sharing the pattern with you in October!

Until next time, happy crocheting,
