Makings...


Currently I'm making this "Ugly Granny Square Blanket".  I call it ugly because it's being made out of my random scraps of wool... but I secretly think it's rather cute (and Symon has recently started referring to it as his, so obviously he thinks it's pretty awesome too).

I'm not sure how much crafting, baking or blogging I will get around to this year... we'll just have to wait and see.   One thing I know for sure, if I can squeeze in a little bit of crochet here and there, I definitely will!!

  1. I love how things that start off ugly/ just to use up often have the most character.

  14. I love all the colors in your photo and I think your blanket will turn out anything but ugly! Love positive uses for scraps (much better than my piles of scrap balls)!
