Well for a crochet nerd like myself I have had a rather exciting week. First I took delivery of some builder's plumb-line in some interesting colours...
..and then I managed to track down some jute garden twine (harder to find than I thought)...
Nope I'm not planning on building a wall and trailing some clematis up it, these are in fact the ingredients for my next project in the Happy Hooker Backwards project! And what fun I am having crocheting with such a different material than I am used to. True my hands are getting rough and smell like B&Q, and I have flecks of twine over most of clothes and soft furnishings, but oooh such excitement!
It's working up nice and fast too so hopefully I will have a finished result to share with you all soon.
Thanks for the lovely comments on my crocheted iPod cover, I am in the process of writing up my rather haphazard pattern to share here, might take me a wee while longer though, pattern writing is not my fastest skill :)
I shall leave you in anticipation now, I do hope you UK readers are enjoying all this sunshine (unless you are like me and love a bit of autumnal drizzle...)
