This week has been very lovely with all the sunshine and warm temperatures, which I have enjoyed every moment of! I have been very busy this week, making the most of every opportunity when I haven't been working. On quiet evenings I have been continuing on with Sunny Stripe blanket or learning new crochet patterns, here are some photos to show you how my crochet is getting on.
Today has been filled with frothy tea and coffee, coffee cake and of course, lots of crochet! My sister This Girl is... aka Lisa, has been wanting to learn how to crochet for some time and we have finally had time to do a bit of crochet tutoring. What a lovely day it has been!
As we crocheted indoors, my brother-in-law Dave tinkered about in the garden and made a very rustic ghetto garden table in which we used for our 'outside tea, cake and crochet party'. Even the next door neighbour's cat tried to join in on the action. When we were outside my sister and I decided to have some fun doing little granny squares, and only having just learned the treble stitch my sister produced her very first granny square. I helped guide her through the technique by making my own granny square at the same time, to make it easier for guiding on what to do. Lisa made the blue square shown in the picture and I think it is excellent for her first one.
There will be future crochet tutoring sessions to be had, as she wants to learn more and she said she will show me how to make jam (I hope its bramble jam!). Crafting is very relaxing and such a fun hobby to share and spend time doing it with someone else.
