My last post was rather dreary, I’d just finished a piece and it didn’t turn out quite as I expected.  I will admit I normally crochet every day but I didn’t yesterday, the top I made for my mum didn’t look any better (to me) come morning!

Anyway today I plucked the courage to take it over.  I said to my mum ‘Be honest mum, if you’re not going to wear it my mother in law would be glad of it, I’ll be gutted if you don’t like it but I’d be gutted if you pretended you did too!’ She promised she would be completely honest, and she opened the gift bag…….


I’m so, so pleased! It’s given me confirmation that I’m not too bad at crocheting, I did finish the top off with one little button on the bottom right hand corner, just one of these

And she thought it was a lovely touch, anyway she must of like it because she sent photos of herself wearing it, and dad has plastered it allover Facebook! How embarrassing!

Besides the top I think my mum is gorgeous!

My sister said it looks shop bought…go me!

I’ll join my top together tonight, now I have my confidence back.  

Then I’m starting this for me for my holiday

I have ordered the most gorgeous yarn for it!!! It’s called James C. Brett noodles chunky, oh my!!! It’s very light and almost tubular, I cannot wait!

The pic is for illustration as I’ve ordered it in white, but just to show you incase you’ve not seen it before.

Anyway I got a great deal with it from Deramores it was £1 cheaper than anywhere else, they’ve sent me a link, so if you are looking for wool or yarn this link will give you 20% off of your order and a free pattern! Just click on this Mention me

Anyway off to check for any Facebook comments on mums top!

Happy hooking X

    Good to hear that your Mum loved the top. I’m only making a throw rug a this point so I’ve got a ways to go before I start making anything really useful, but I’m enjoying it.
