Hello........ today's post is going to be about wonderful stripes, how I've fallen in love with this colourful make. I'm a bit late to the party on this one as it's from a crochet along from a couple of years ago, but as soon as I saw Hannah's gorgeous blanket 'here' there was nothing else for it.
I came down with a serious case of the wanties, despite already having two other blankets on the go, but seeing as I was laid up with my ankle, it seemed only fair to order some yarn and dig out my 5mm hook. So my 'Broken Ankle blanket' as I'm calling it began on the 10th September
Hannah from 'Not your average crochet' has made a wonderful tutorial for this blanket and everyday I sat down with my feet up and worked a row or two, until I got to the tricky Catherine Wheels, where a certain amount of frogging took place.
Before I finally got the hang of it, I'm also loving that I'm learning new stitches with this blanket, perhaps not so much at the time, with the Catherine Wheels !!
but when they were done I was skippy happy that I managed them.
After that it was onto the Star stitch, another new one for me and I just Love it so very pretty it reminds me so much of piped butter cream, yep I've been watching to much 'Bake off. '
A few more row of gorgeous colour saw me today arrived at the Bobble stitch, using my all time favourite stylecraft special dk colour of sherbet, hmmm so yummy, do you have a favourite Stylecraft colour ? I'd love to know what it is.
This was another new stitch for me but I found I was quite quickly, happily bobbling along.
Seventeen days in and here's where I'm up too.
Now to the foot, well I went to fracture clinic in the week and the Dr said that the boot cast could come off on Saturday, yippee happy dance, It's fours weeks since I fell and I'm at the halfway point as it still needs to heal for about another four weeks, but is stable enough to be freed from the boot unless I'm going out of the house.
Something I'm skippy happy about, as I was really struggling with the weight of the boot and the crutches. Typical me I managed a rare fracture at the back of my ankle, which is good as it's stable and OK to walk on. I still have to go to physio but things are looking up. Sorry some of the pics are not that great you can really tell that the Autumn light is kicking in.
Have a great week and thank you so much for all the comments and get well wishes.
