This week has really flown by I think. Last Saturday was a really quiet week at crochet group, only myself, Lisa, her daughter Abby and Deborah. So Lisa suggested we go on a road trip to Blackpool so we could visit Mrs Johnsons Emporium! OMG what heaven this shop is!
There’s lots of yarn bombing on the streets around the shop, with crochet flowers in baskets on the shop front. Inside is a treasure trove of all things crafty, I was in awe of the amount of buttons!
They have such an amazing selection of yarns and lots of bits and in the store to look at including a HUGE animal head!
I was very well behaved and only bought two balls of yarn, I fell in love with this colour and after chatting to Lisa I decided it would be perfect to make a Lalylala doll. It made me think of a babies onesie in this shade so I’m going to make a custom Lalylala with little slippers, a onesie and maybe a teeny tiny lovey to go with it! Was such an awesome place to visit and I’ll be visiting again for sure.
I’ve managed quite a bit of crochet this week! I finished my Granny Square project for the Hobbycraft blog, now that it’s been posted I can actually share photos! It took a while to complete as it’s made up of 60 squares measuring 7.5inches each! I made it with The Crochet Sanctuary in mind, I think it would be perfect to nap on in front of the fire at Christmas!
And finally… I started a Virus Shawl for myself! I wont be making it very big as I plan on wearing it as a scarf like the one that Pauls sister Sue made me for Christmas. I’m using Stylecraft Cabaret in Rainbow (though I think it’s more of a peacock colour!) I’ve also worked a little bit on my Liula Scarf, I’m not very far on with it but I love it to far. (Using a Scheepjes Whirl in Lemon Cassis Cream)
Tomorrow is Knitcraft social day at Hobbycraft Warrington, I’m pretty sure there wont be any impromptu road trips!
Thanks for stopping by!
