The first project I'm working on is a pair of socks for my Dad. Just some plain vanilla ones but hopefully he'll like them. Felt a bit bad that Mum gets a beaded lace shawl and he wasn't getting anything
The yarn is from my stash of Flamboyance Yarns and is in a colourway named "Red Onions".
My other project is my big granny squares blanket. At the weekend I laid out all the squares, worked out how I wanted them arranged and then slip stitched them together
Unfortunately I've now got a lot of ends to deal with! I'm going to try to be good and sew them in before I start the border. It's just the right size for snuggling under on the sofa and it's so bright and cheerful :-)
Tomorrow I've been working on a mini tutorial and I have a hat to show you too. For now though I'm going to enjoy a homemade raspberry muffin (with raspberries from the garden!) and a cup of tea.
Have a good week everyone :-) And hop over to Keep Calm Craft On for more crafty posts
