I’m taking part in Rachel’s CAL. This is my beginning.
Cleaned out an old knitting basket and gave it a fresh piece of gingham lining. Picked some potential-ish Cottage Garden colours in Pure Gold double knit, although I seem to have a preference for pastels here. (Note to self: what are you thinking? Add in some brighter colours!!!).
Square #1 – complete disaster. Colours all wrong, plus I undid and reworked a couple of times, before I decided that I don’t like working diagonally at all. This asymmetrical square works much better folded in half as a sunglasses case. But I still hate it. (Anyone need a glasses case?)
The next 3 were lovely to do, and I particularly like #4 with the bobbles. I’ve never been tempted to do bobbles before but now I think I’ll work them into some other things.
And then Jessie asked to be included in the photos.
Pity I can’t teach her to crochet, then she could earn her keep.
To be continued…
