Crochet Update

Here I am in my Eclectic Sweater from Cassie Ward, I did fiddle with the pattern. I worked in a Wool Shop before I had my son and I couldn't bring myself to using 5mm for DK so I used 4mm but in the largest size. Yes I did do a tension square so I could roughly work out the difference. I also lengthen it, I compared the size and length to a favourite brought jumper. As long as you finish on the right row for the neck it worked out fine.


Here is my latest project while I wait for Helen Shrimpton Octagonical, its Beltane Blessing again from Helen Shrimpton.

I've also been reading loads of Fiction, I found it gives my brain a rest from overthinking although I can't read thriller or crime books I'm almost having panic attacks when bad things happen. I've read so much Women's Fiction this year that I've past my Reading Challenge of 35books on Goodreads and didn't realise till now.

You do the most amazing crochet I've ever sern. I finally finished my teacloth this year in no 20 white thread. I love it too. Also tricky pattern.
I did blog it in May.
Thanks for sharing, and may God bless and keep you and all whom you love safe and well.
Prayer hugs, Shaz in Oz. X

That is a gorgeous jumper Debby and the colours and fit are perfect, and the one you are working on for now is such pretty colours too. I have just had a look at the Octagonical one you are waiting to start and that will definitely have the wow factor with its octagonal shape. The complexity of these is mind boggling, I have done crochet but not to this standard. Fabulous work Debby! x

Wow, you look amazing 😍, you have made a fantastic job with your jumper, it looks great and suits you too. Loving your afghan, I’ve just started my first Cosmic Cal and I’m halfway through Diamond geezer for my Dads Christmas pressie, I’ve changed the colours so it matches his room. Take care x

What a fantastic jumper Debby, lovely colours and super design and a lovely photo of you. The detail on that blanket is stunning, I could never concentrate long enough to do anything as intricate as that. I love to lose myself in a good book xx
