One Entry Down and One to go!

Thank you for all your lovely comments and good wishes I'm pleased  to say things are progressing albeit very slowly and my fingers are crossed that nothing is going to interfere or hold up the process now that it's started to inch forward.  I know it all sounds very criptic all I can say at the moment is that it involves selling a property please keep your fingers crossed for me. :)

 If you can remember my challenge for this month was to join in with the crochet crowd's feel good charity challenge and submit at least one entry...


One entry all done for the Afghan section

This was an absolute joy to make a fabulously easy granny stripe just the thing to relax with and calm  ragged nerves..

I used stash yarn most of it was Stylecraft Special Aran and I used the Random stripe generator which is such fun and for me  it was great not have to think 'now what colour next?' 

You can find the pattern with tutorial here.

I thought I had another entry for the hat category but when I've counted the hats I've made there is one short so I'm off to make that now I have till the end  of the month so plenty of time to submit them both and get started on my May sweater which will end up as being May/June sweater I think.

For those of you that haven't heard Daniel from the Crochet Crowd has suffered a heart attack I would like to send my best wishes for a speedy recovery. xx

  1. Nice work, Linda, and for such an excellent cause. I had forgotten all about the random stripe generator. I really need to try it sometime. I remember bookmarking the site about five years ago and I'm glad to know it's still out there because I think it would serve me well. :)

  2. Hi Linda, your blanket is lovely and colorful :) you always do a lot for charity, great job!!

  3. Anything to do with buying and selling property in the UK is a nightmare. Apparently, the rest of the world doesn't understand why we make it so difficult. All you can do is stay calm and sane.....not easy, I know.

  4. Lovely blanket. It's nice to have a project that is relaxing and you don't have to think about it.
    I'll keep my fingers and toes crossed for you and I hope that all goes well for you.

  5. Simply gorgeous !!!!!!
    Have a lovely day !

  6. Linda the blanket is amazing, not that I am surprised everything you mkae is wonderful.

  7. Fantastic blanket, Linda! ♥ I remember playing with the stripe generator too some time ago, but I cannot remember for what... I'm getting old :o). However it's a great tool! And I really like the colors you've chosen, nice combination. Still keep my fingers crossed for you, and also "get well" wishes for Daniel!
    Hugs, Nata
