I met the girls for knitting yesterday... except we didn't knit... we played hookey instead. A little while ago I made myself this crochet heart having seen Lucy's pretty version on her blog. The instructions for the heart (not actually Lucy's) were a little tricky to follow, so I wrote them out again making a few tweaks here and there. (Lucy's pattern for the rose and leaves were spot on!) When Gill saw my heart hanging on my dresser she asked if I could show her how to make it... so that is how our knitting group turned into a crochet group for the morning!
Armed with hooks, yarn and mugs of coffee we had a fun morning, chatting, laughing, hooking... and eating... except Gill that is, who was concentrating so hard that we didn't hear a peep out of her all morning! Most unusual... it was bliss! (It meant she couldn't be rude to me which she usually is)
And I finished another heart, so there are now two hanging on my dresser.
Afterwards we had a wander down to The Creative Sanctuary where I bought more yarn for a new knitting project, despite the fact that in January I vowed that there would be no more new yarn or new projects until I'd finished all the others I've got on the go... so much for resolutions. And Gill encouraged me to make another unecessary purchase (if you follow the link don't believe what she tells you it was definitely her fault)... but you'll have to wait for another day until I show you that!
It was a perfect morning really... good friends, lots and lots of laughter, brunch, crochet and a little bit of unecessary shopping thrown in at the end. It doesn't get much better.
