It's been a while...

I haven't blogged for ages, but don't worry, I'm still here and still crafting, but, due to GCSE's and seemingly endless exams and Controlled Assessments, maybe not as much as I would like!

I used to mainly sew, but now my passion has to be knitting (although I have finally finished my green quilt which I started 3 years ago!).
 Since last time I have made a couple of hats,
 some lovely cushions (in which I learnt how to cable which I love to do)
 scarves for most of my family
and some fingerless gloves.

But my most exiting project has to be my current one, something time-consuming, expensive and completely irrational, but something I love doing, making a knitted blanket! I'm using a fantastic book, 200 Knitted Blocks by Jan Eaton, which gives you patterns for 6 inch knitted squares.

I have made 20 sqaures so far in blues, greens and creams in a range of different techniques.
I'm loving it and will keep you posted on my progress.
