CROCHET

 

I have my mojo back! Yey! It is amazing how much happier I am when I have some crochet or stitching to do. Although I haven't made much progress on anything else, I have made progress with my Eastern Jewels blanket. 

All the granny triangles have been done and placed in labelled bags with the squares. 




The 4 corner half granny triangles are also finished.




See these foundation circles for the octagons I had prepared years ago....



they were all wrong! I had crocheted the wrong stitches so I unpulled them and remade each one. That kept me busy for a while.




Yesterday I started making an octagon and this is as far as I got so I am hoping to finish it today if all goes according to plan. 



I will have to do something about the pink showing through parts of the blue round but I don't want it to distract me from progressing .

Well, that's my excitement for the week. What was yours?
