Soooo, it’s been too long since my last blog but there’s a pretty good reason! I have had a suspected trapped nerve which has been causing all kinds of trouble for my right arm for a while now – being right handed its a little bit of an issue and means I can’t really craft at the minute.
Anyway, I was complaining about my boredom to the doctor last week and she said that I should be ok doing a bit of crochet every now & then but not to go mad at it so that’s what I’ve been doing!
I decided I needed to set out on a small project so that I couldn’t get too carried away with it so I challenged myself to make a set of coasters. I have yarn left over from the blanket/throw that I made a few years ago which sits on the back of the sofa……
So I decided to use it and make some matching coasters. It’s a gorgeous James C Brett Yarn, Marble chunky in shade MC6 (I love it so much I even know the shade without checking the ball band!) and I just love the chocolate browns with flashes of teal that suddenly appear as you work through the ball.
So I got out my hooks, decided on a 6.5mm for the job and started out with a Magic Loop, 12 trebles into the loop, tighten the loop, join and then 2 trebles into each stitch on two more rounds. I allowed myself to do one a day and now have a lovely set of 4 with lots of yarn left so I may do some square ones next week too 🙂 what do you think?
