A further excuse for my extended absence is that I am embarking on my first big crochet make: double bed blanket. For those that don't know or didn't cut their crochet teeth making granny squares here's the pattern I'm using, but there really are squillions of others, I just wanted something very simple and classic. Oh, and humour me by imaging all of these stitched together with pillar box red.
p.s. there is something utterly delicious about a big pile of granny squares... xxx
