Sunday is for crochet!

I finished my sirdar top last night, well the crochet side of it anyway, just need to to Join it together but I’m slightly nervous about it, it’s my first item of clothing and I’ve put a lot of time into it, bought the recommended sirdar cotton etc. So once it’s joined I’ll know if I’ve done a good job! Anyway I’m still waiting on Mr H to make my blocking board, once he’s done that I’ll join and block.

So I got up extra early to do my weeks worth of ironing, then cleaned the house so I had nothing to stop me from sitting on my bum all day, so started on mums sirdar top, I do like the pattern but I’m pleased she is a lot smaller than me it’s a lot less crocheting, I am getting tired of the pattern now and itching to move onto something new, anyway I’ve sat for so long crocheting I’ve managed to get 25% of hers done already 

That pic isn’t the 25% though! I’ve not bought sirdar DK for this as I couldn’t find the white she wanted so I’m using Paton DK, I’ve got to admit it feels exactly the same as the sirdar DK but less costly, and I don’t need as much for mum.

Anyway, it’s lovely to crochet with! And I’d definitely use again, plus I got it from hobbycraft on 3for 2 so even better!

Is anyone here on Instagram? I was honoured today, I got a comment and a like from Twinkie Chan!!!! So after my holiday I definitely need to sit down and crochet her doughnut footstool FACT!! 

I’ve asked Mr H to make me a blocking board so I can get the perfect finish to my work, his instructions are to follow the pic below

Once it’s made I’ll post a pic.  

I’ve also ordered the pattern for this today!

I’ll use the recommended DMC Natura Medium yarn but not sure on colour, I was thinking of the petrol blue or a nice coral, I do love coral, and of course my sister wants one too! As you can see they’re made form the large granny squares shown, so my blocking board will come in very useful! Any ideas on colours? I’m going to Florida so it’s going to be hot!

Anyway off to watch some tv trash before before work tomorrow…..

Happy Hooking!

    Wow that was fast!!!! Can’t wait to see the finished project. May need to tackle this one myself. Did you order the pattern online?

      Is it?! I’m not sure what’s fast or not I thought I was slow šŸ˜‚ you can get it online, I got it out of last months simply crochet, but that pattern didn’t show short sleeves, so I bought the short sleeve pattern online, is it breaking copyright rules if I forward it to you?!

        I am not sure if it is but will see if I can order it just in case. If I can’t find it I may take you up on your kind offer. The reason why I say fast is that I just saw you post your list is summer items and now you are already almost done with the first. Nice work!
