on the hook today..

today it is cold here in Essex.. very cold, but we have no snow, just brilliant sunshine this afternoon.
I looked out in  my garden and guess what I saw...
cobwebs frozen on m rotary washing line.

So there must be a very frozen spider somewhere... eek!

I have finished my latest scarf..It is hard to show you what it looks like, but I hope you get the  idea.
my circles scarf.. made using pattern from simply crochet.
I can share the pattern I used.
Start with double knit and size 3.50 hook.You simply make a chain of 34. and join with slip stitch.Do one chain,
double crochet into the first chain and continue until reach end.change to a 4.0 hook. Next chain 3 and then treble one ,then one  treble in next three stitches,then do 2 trebles in next stitch, one treble in next three stitches,and then 2 treble in next stitch all the way round.Join with a slip stitch
.change hook.This time use a 5 .o hook
Then next round chain 3,and  and do one treble into each stitch.join with a slip stitch.
Last round.. chain 3 and treble one, then treble one into next three stitches and then 2 treble into next stitch.continue all the way round,and join with a slip stitch.You have made your first chain link in the scarf.
To link the chains when you have done the row of chains at the beginning interlink it to previous one, and join your  slip stitch. Be careful not to twist the link as you make it.Continue for however long you want to make scarf.I made 12 links in all.

more granny squares

This is going to be another blanket.This time with brighter colours.

a new cowl
This was made using chunky wool.

the cowl   I have started to make  with chunky wool
It is very simple to make ..With a size 8.0 hook.. chain 27.
with the 3 chain from hook do a row of trebles trebling and skipping one until the end of the row.
Chain 2, and treble in the spaces of the previous row with one chain inbetween,
The last treble was worked in the space between the initial chains and first treble.
Each row consists of 14 trebles, (initial chain always counts as a treble)and 13 spaces.
Continue until required length I am making mine 65 long as I want to wrap it round my neck twice. whip stitch ends together.

the start of another chain link scarf..
I am using oddments left from the making of my new granny blanket.
Well Alex is at school, time for a nice bowl of hot warming soup and some nice crusty roll...
