Granny Squares Part 2

After 2 evenings at the knitting club I've finally learnt how to crochet granny squares. I'm working on a blanket so it will probably take a few months but I'm quite confident I'll finish this one. My biggest problem is finding wool in colours I like, these are fine for now.

Sunshine = plants!

I'm really quite excited about how much the seeds have grown, they need repotting (but I don't have any pots left) although compost is plentiful - asda are selling bags for a quid! Bargain :-)

Granny squares!

I've been going to knitting club in Chorlton for the last 2 months (first Thurs of every month in Battery Park juice bar!) and my sole aims were to a) finish the scarf I've been knitting since Easter 07 and b) learn how to crochet to make a blanket out of granny squares. I should have photographed my first few attempts (they were interesting shapes, definitely not squares) but I seem to have gotten the hang of it!

This is the first (of many I hope) in its 2 stages in green and purple.

Seeds week 4

Hurrah the cornflowers have started to grow! They're supposed to flower late March - April but this is not flowering, still at least there is something happening. Only another 29cm to grow...

It's really windy here so windmills are good fun. The little one is from the sea side :-)

Seeds day 1

Welcome to the very first page of my very first blog!  I've recently caught my Mum's green fingers and am really exciting by the prospect of growing some seeds!  I have no idea how things will turn out but that's all part of the fun isn't it?

I'm also a tad obsessed with crocheting but to be truthful I have embarked on a large-ish project (more later) and it may take a while to finish!  I hope you enjoy what you see / read and will come back for more!


I've never planted seeds before so it will be interesting to see if anything actually grows!
