Spring into Crochet …

29/03/2012 § 1 Comment

Spring has definitely sprung!

Hasn’t it been a glorious week?  I’ve enjoyed an hour or so in the sunshine every afternoon after returning from work – crochet in hand!

Having mastered rippling – more on that in a minute – I saw a photo of a stitch called Larksfoot and had to have a go …

It’s a very simple stitch and I’ll do a little tutorial very soon but I played around with a sample panel …

Isn’t Larksfoot just the Springiest name for a crochet stitch?

and mounted it onto a vintage wool cushion.  I had to restrict myself to one panel ‘cos I mustn’t get diverted from my ripply journey …

This is real freestyle blanket-in-the-making.  There’s no plan and I buy balls of wool that I like the look of – as long as they’re pure wool DK, and they’re pretty, then they’re in!

It’s growing fast, but not too fast ‘cos I’m really enjoying every ripple along the way.  And no, I haven’t forgotten Hearts & Flowers …

but it’s so special that I keep it for holidays and times when I can make every block along the way hold a memory.   Maybe another one will be finished over the Easter holidays.

Enjoy the sunshine while it lasts.

  • Lovely crochet. It is cold and grey here in Massachusetts. Last week it was 80 degrees. This week it has been really chilly (below freezing) in the evenings!

    Keep on crocheting.
