Flu

I have the Flu, it's nasty I'm struggling to do my daily chores, even having shower requires lots of energy. A tiny little bug has invaded my system and it feels as though I'm under attack from a large battalion . But, I will not be beaten. I'm still grannying,(is that even a word) I think I am addicted to making them.This latest batch in Noro silk garden. This yarn isn't the softest of yarns I hope once it is washed and blocked it will feel alot nicer.

I have been crocheting like a wild banshee. Every since kidsilk haze has been around I fell in love with this gorgeous fiber. I managed to get some swarkoski crystals that i have been adding evry 14 sts ,you cant actually see them in the picture but Ive added 3 packs so far and I've used a skein and a half of yarn. They look amazing.

At the stitching show Ally pally I feel in love with a ball of merino yarn that had swarkoski crystals and some sequins sewn onto them. It cost £38.00.I thanked them kindly and made a vow to make my own.Ive not used sequins and Ive used kidsilk haze and i have the most ethereal shawl possible.It's light and soft and it feels like a cloud.Its glistens and ctaches the light beautifully.I can't wait to finish and post pictures.I love it when I can create my own for so much cheaper .I love a bargain.I cant get a good picture to show the crystals in situ.

In case you have the flu save money but making your own lemsip.Use paracetamol crushed in a pestle and mortar add a spoonful of manuka honey and the juice of half a lemon add a drop or two of warm water, mix and drink. Get your favourite blanket, laptop, crochet projects and enjoy.

  3. Best wishes for your health!
    I can see the swaroski-decorations a little anyway.
    But the crochet effect with this silk yarn is just marvellous. Maybe will try it one day too.
