Yes yes you are not imaging things, Fiona is writing a blog post!
But I feel like writing a post today to share with you some pictures of some crochet goodies.
I have made to date 3 granny blankets, one quite large, another medium and the last one baby size.
Before I continue I need to tell you about a massive ball of wool that I picked up in a charity shop. I go to the local charity shops in Dublin pretty much every day. I went into a couple of shops that I hadn't been in ...
I'm a self learned person when it comes to crochet. I learned to do crochet by reading written patterns and not by reading graph, so initially when i see a pattern in graph...it was a language that i didn't understand. Later i learnt to read graph too, and also enjoyed working with graph. But always prefered a written pattern...but this time i hoped if it was a graph when i read the pattern...hmmm.
I was never a great fan of filet crochet, because it never seems to be challenging and so i get bored fast ...
I am guessing I knit this dress in the early 1970’s. As I have been doing recently I knit it without a pattern. I had a limited number of skeins of a very expensive boucle yarn.

I've been ridiculously busy with my Sophie and other bits, but I've got some great pics to show you, so I'll see you back here tomorrow! ( I took the pictures with ...
I have wanted to learn to knit for what seems like a coon's age. I see Judy over at Patchwork Times is always posting cute projects and Nancy over at Wyoming Breezes has me yearning to knit socks. As does Carol over at The Polka Dot Chicken. And then things like this pop up on Pinterest.
and I am more determined than ever. I don't care if its 100° outside, I would wear hats like this every day!
And this scarf! How long do you reckon it'll take me to learn how to knit something like this ...
As soon as the part 2 of 3 was out on last Thursday I finished the top portion of the bag.
