Cosy Afternoon

 

Today I have had a lovely cosy afternoon hooking happily, listening to the radio, I will show you some pictures of that gorgeousness in a minute.

 This however, is where I walked this morning with the dogs, unbelievable that  this little path which runs alongside the brook, is just 2 minutes away from my home.

This morning was so sunny, but very cold, in fact my little thermometer read -0.5 degrees centigrade, so I didn’t stop for long but instead walked briskly up the hill!

Once at the top I was rewarded with this… I see this most days as this is where I walk the dogs, however, today I appreciated it more than ever…maybe the bitter cold coupled with the glorious sunshine had something to do with it.

Little Jess enjoyed it too, Alf didn’t hang around for his photo!  Anyway, here are the pictures of ‘that gorgeousness’ I promised you…this is what I have been hooking this afternoon

Yes this is the glorious, heavenly to hook Cosy blanket which is currently part of a crochet along that is being hosted by the enormously talented Lucy of Attic 24.  This one is the ‘her’ part of the ‘his and hers’ set I am making for my Mom and Dad for Christmas….the colour way is beautiful and is from the Attic 24 shop at Wool Warehouse and comes as a pack called ‘cottage’… my Dad’s colours I selected individually and look like this

My Dad’s blanket will be the same pattern as my Mom’s to complete the set.   Do you want to have a look at that pattern again… close up

  1. Gorgeous photos, I miss walking my dogs and just can’t wait to get back to it. Love the colours in the cottage package and your Dads colours look wonderful also, they will make a wonderful pairing of blankets.

    1. it’s never too late… I only started last week and if not now then I can highly recommend hooking this pattern at a later date… I already know that I will come back to this blanket again and again…let me know if you do x

  2. Beautiful scenery and absolutely lovely blanket. I’m going to give Lucy’s ripple blanket a go this year. By the way, my dogs are really jealous of your walk path 😉

  3. Uh oh…..I see myself ordering more yarn and joining in although late but I like the pattern and I like the fact that the colors aren’t quite so bright but more muted which I like. Yours is gorgeous!

  4. Love the colours love the view, love he little dog, soo cute! How long did it take you to do that bit of a blanket if you don’t mind me asking? keeps thinking I’ll make one then, see how much yarn I would need and get a litle overwhelmed! haha. Also do you weave in ends as you go or at the end? Thanks and sorry for the amount of questions. Also thank for liking my blog 🙂

    1. Thank you for stopping by…the blanket took just over a week to get that far…. But I only work part time so have spent lots of time on it. I try to weave in the ends as I go cause leaving them to the end becomes very tedious. I try to take it in stages so I don’t get overwhelmed. X
