I was spoilt rotten yesterday.I had one of the most relaxing days ever.Breakfast in bed .A lovely roast beef ,roast potatoes, parsnip,a divine salad with a gorgeous vinaigrette., and profiteroles for dinner.It was so lovely and I felt spoilt. I love being a mum , best thing I have ever done. I'm so proud of them and I love them both ,I'm the luckiest mum in the world. Two new purchases deliciously soft and silky yarn from Sheepaints. I wish I could describe the softness of this yarn.All I have done since Ive got them is stroke them. I wound them into balls and I have started a new project. I still have plenty more projects to finish and I know I should not have started a new one,but, the yarn screamed out to me that it want to be a shawl .Does that ever happen to you? ,my yarns talks to me but dont tell my family they already think I'm bonkers they don't get why I have so much yarn

I have been asked to show a few more pictures of my granny square jacket. I love the way it has turned out.I particularly like the back I didnt want the whole jacket to be so colourful so decided on black grannies at the back with a line of colour at the hem. Very effective dont you think? I added the belt to define the waist.It is made entirely of granny squares . I didnt do a gauge swatch i just crocheted a few square with different sizes hooks until i had the perfect stitch definition I was after. My template was a coat I like the fit of. It is so easy to make.

If anyone had told me I would be making a multicoloured granny square jacket and wear it I would have said they were mad. I love wearing it.


  1. WOW!!!! That jacket is stunning!!!! Love it! x

  2. I'm glad you had such an indulgent day! And the jacket looks great -- the back is really nice with just the bottom border. Good job!

  3. Awesome job! I love the black. . .perfect balance.

  4. I wish people would remember that Mother's Day is about having your family around you. You really don't need the swanky restaurants with their overpriced menus to realise what's important to you.
    You obviously enjoyed your special day, same here!
    Love the new wool,by the way, lovely colours.

  5. Oh I am in love with this item! It is amazing, I mean really amazing!!!
