I haven't been around for a while - October holidays crept up quietly and pleasantly, very nice it was too! I had no plans for the break apart from a vague notion to finish off the crochet throw/blanket I'd started making squares for at the beginning of the Summer. 81 squares and each one different, if only marginally - I was really pleased to make them all unique, it was a bit of hit and miss. I really wanted to make a genuine granny throw from oddments of my wool stash though to give it a real heirloom feel.
. . . . draped over a ladder outside the house . . .

I'm chuffed it's finally finished! Not sure that Ji Ji the cat was quite impressed, but I'm sure she'll find her way to lying on it yet! Whether I let her or not is the question . . . . hmmmmm.
The 'Home' double crochet square was fun - I haven't done cross stitch since I was in Primary School, hehe!
I'm just playing with these squares for a bit of fun at the moment - with a view to covering this cushion maybe - no deadline, just practicing!
It's blowing a hoolie of a gale here in the Hebrides today! Just right for snuggling up :)
Bye for Now :)
