Finally made a blanket!

Hi all, hope you are all doing well....just wanted to show off my newly learnt craft and first finished item.....a crocheted blanket.

It's only a small lap blanket for Maddy's dogs, but i used it to learn on and make my mistakes. It's a bit wonky here and there but nothing that notices when you use it.

Really enjoyed this, prefer crochet a lot more that knitting, lot less stressfull, so hopefully it will be the first of many.

Big thanks to Maddy as usual who taught me the basics, as usualy i almost made her tear her hair out whilst i tried to learn....but that's what blokes are for eh? :)

Made use of my new pen case too.....makes a great holder for my hooks and stuff. Bit more masculine than the flowery Kath Kidston types too :)

 Take care everyone, hope you are all well and crafting......keep smiling.

Happy New Year everyone!

Just a quick stop by to wish everyone out there in blogland a very happy new year for 2015. I hope all of my crafty friends across the world are keeping well and keeping crafty.

I've been seriously slacking recently, so biggest kick up the bum goes to myself, have a few crafty projects in mind so I hope to be spending some more time here.

Looking forward to catching up with you all soon, can't wait to see how many of your lovely blogs are still going.

Have a great New Year everyone,

Love Calv, Maddy, Rotty......and I suppose I should mention the big girls blouse......Calvin Mouse. :)
