Fuzzy blankets, soup and a bit of crochet

What a grey weekend we've had in Edinburgh, it's hard to believe it's actually June. Although, having had my wisdom tooth taken out on Friday it suited me fine to have a cosy day in on the couch with fuzzy blankets and soup, and so with the miserable weather I didn't feel bad about doing nothing and staying snuggled up inside. 

I have finally finished and blocked the fronts of my granny cushions as well, after pulling them out and redoing them a few too many times. So now I just need to choose some yarn for the back, I just can't seem to make up my mind on what colour to go for.

I've actually not done a lot of crochet lately other than the cushions, feeling a bit frustrated because I have so many project ideas but not enough yarn to get going. I need to have a bit of a yarn buying spree really to replenish supplies but since the pennies have been a bit tight the last couple of months I haven't been able to. But I can easy do some wee projects with my stash so I should really do some more to keep the old hook practicing.

I've finished assembling my Ixxi prize and I had hoped I would have it hung up and photographed to share, but unfortunately I'm  having some problems with the hanging strip. Just waiting to get some advice from the nice Ixxi folk.


  1. Just found your blog, I'm now following. The weather is no better in Ireland. I'm from Aberdeen and heading there next week to visit friends and family so I'm hoping for some improvement by then.

  2. Thanks for following :)
    I'm still optimistic that summer will appear any day now!
