I shall bear in mind the wedding dresses if I ever marry for a second time but I hope the groom will give me a lot of time as they are crocheted in 2ply! As the would be groom is still a figment of my imagination then I certainly have got years to do it in.
I found the pattern that I was looking for - a cravat pattern scribbled on a piece of paper by an elderly lady about 30yrs ago so watch this blog as it may be appearing anytime soon. I rarely throw patterns away as Vicky can testify having seen a fraction of them when she visited and can usually unearth something somewhere from my stash to suit most occasions. Nothing changes much and with a little tweaking they can look bang up to date. Some patterns are so old they have come right back into style.
I did a little more crochet on Anna's soakers last night and they are an extremely strange shape. The bottom is more of a shelf shape but maybe they will look better on Anna than off! I certainly hope so otherwise they will go rippppppp anytime soon.
I am off to walk Buster. I have waited in vain for the rain to stop so I will have to don my waterproofs and wellies and brave the rain. He wants a walk no matter what the weather is doing. I am so not looking forward to this bit!
My niece has just texted me to say she is wearing her Doris Chan Tall Latte today and has received a compliment whilst shopping in Manchester. It does fit well though and is really flattering so I can see myself making more from the book even though it wasn't the best of experiences.
