More Grandma Love

As you all would have noticed I have
gone a tad overboard with the crocheting hook
of late...
Have wool = will crochet...
No wool = pretty peeved...
so this week has been a mixture...
Had wool...Run out of wool...
No stuffing...Some stuffing...
Wrong colour...I suppose that will work colour...

I really wish I lived closer to the shops...

But then saying that, if I did I could be in
crochet overload and the family would be pulling bits of wool
out of their dinner...
"Oh really how did that get in there"
"well just think of it as extra fiber"

mmmm don't think they would quite see it that way...
So here you have another "grandma love" cushion...


and a very long pair of wristwarmers...
I did get very bored will the wool shortage and just kept going with these...
they are really warm thou...


Well here's hoping I will get at least to the shops next week
or I could start to crochet strips of plastic bags...
Actually I think that has been done by someone...
I really should google that?

Just gorgeous, you clever hooker!!! In high school I crocheted makeup and shoe bags out of strips of recycled bread bags. It is kinda fun!

I won't tell you again how much I love your cushion unless you want me to? ;) The wrist warmers look awesome. On my list of to-do's but winter is nearly over...

Hi, Beck just sent me the link to your blog and I love it. I identify with your hooky obsession completely. Running out of wool terrifies me. Your cushion is fantastic! I'm off now to read back through some of your older posts.
