Something different.


 Over the Easter weekend, I did a bit more work to my peacock 3, the bird and his feathers. I took a photo but the light was so poor, it is a waste of time posting it, I will try to take a better one tomorrow.
My pleurisy is making it painful to work for any length of time on the sewing machine, so, I have given into temptation, bought some wool, and I am trying to crochet some squares.  The one above was last nights effort.  Got mixed up with sc and dc and there is an English and American version, so ended up the wrong size, but, another try this afternoon, and I have made 2 squares, with, the correct stitches.   I have not done much with a crochet hook, I have always preferred knitting, the last time I crocheted was about 30+ years ago.
I bought the wool from Craft Arena, the plan is a cream daisy centre, a single colour for the next 2 rounds and then a Debbie Bliss random wool for the final round .  I am hoping this will be a tea break project for when I am back at work and I don't have any hand stitching to do.

American and UK patterns certainly make crocheting complicated. Lovely wool.

Glad you liked the wool. It is scrummy isn't it?

my neighbour has pleurisy too, [my husband had it some years ago, the pain when he breathed was so acute i rushed him to hosptal thinking he was having a heart attack] and is quite depressed waiting for the discomfort to improve. hope you feel better soon.

What a good tea-break project! Are you thinking ahead to how these will be put together? If four squares are put together with the same colour at a corner, it makes for interesting random(ish) patterning when this happens overall...
