Better Late than Never part 1: September and October in crochet

To say I'm a bit late in posting this seems a little bit of an understatement (and a pointing out of the blindingly obvious!) given that we're now over halfway through November. For now, I've decided to go with the mantra 'better late than never' as I've finally managed to largely catch-up and I really wanted to show you all how it's coming along.

This second half of the blanket is getting big now and I have to confess to feeling a bit nervous about having decided to crochet a 7 day border.....it's going to take a while to do each day I think. Ah well, will just have to make sure to keep the Christmas chocolates nearby to keep the energy levels up!!!

September was a variable month....some glorious days early on, followed by more cloudy and overcast days. There were also some stunning sunsets along the way.

With moving at the end of September, October really did rush by in a blur of new routines, trying to remember which cupboard we'd squirreled things away in and finding our way in a new area. It's been lots of fun and we are slowly getting there! The views we have from our house make me feel very privileged and the sunrises and sunsets have been truly stunning! Some people (Elizabeth & Lynne!) have suggested I do a sunrise/sunset blanket next year: I 'm sure that it would look stunning but some of these photo's were taken at 6am on a Sunday due to Littlies waking up and I do dream of one day having lie-ins so I may put that idea on the back burner for now.....!!!!!

 

 

Showing these pictures reminds me that I haven't yet shared my trip to the Knitting and Stitching show with you, I'll have to do that very soon: it was such a great day out and there were some stunning quilts on display. I also purchased a few little things!

I did seem to miss a lot of daytime sky pictures for October, but looking at the blanket, it was fairly average. And you see all the beige, overcast miserable days towards the end of the month there? That was half term!

I was taking these pictures by the patio doors because the weather was so miserable today and Little Boy couldn't resist helping me to stage my photo.....

I absolutely love seeing the updates on your blanket! It's looking so lovely! Not much more to go before the finish line now! So grey today it's depressing - let's hope for some lovely blue skies in December! E x

This is so amazing, how did you get the idea for this? I ask because I would never come up with it in a million years! I'm looking forward to seeing the finished blanket.

It looks so effective. It will be fantastic to think of the story behind it in years to come. You have had the most incredibly variable year weatherwise to hook anyway!
