F.O – My first Crochet Project

Hello all 🙂

So this blog is pretty much Lily pictures and finished objects for a while. Now I’m back at work, my spare time is very limited. However, the spare time is being spent learning to crochet and some knitting – when I’m not cuddling Lily. I’m managing to fit in yarn related projects during my work breaks!

So in the last couple of months I’ve started to get my head around crochet – inspired mainly the Octopus for a Preemie facebook group. I have been trying to figure it out on and off for ages and it’s finally starting to click!

It’s not perfect, but I’m pretty proud of it. It’s not going to pass muster because there are some holes in the legs – going to use a smaller hook for them next time. But I’m hoping I can use this skill to help premature babies.

It’s my first time using cotton yarn – Patron DK – and it’s really lovely! The purple colour is solid, but the pink is variegated and really nice to use.

Essentially this skills is another excuse to buy yarn – although the hubby will be told it’s a way to use up my stash… what they don’t know?

Love to you all, I spent the day cuddling Lily and we had a lovely family picnic!

  1. Look up The Crochet Crowd on YouTube! Mikey has tutorial videos that teach everything there is to know about crochet. It’s in American terms versus UK; however you can always google the difference between the terms. Lily is getting so big! Enjoy the cuddles 😀
