When we went away for the school holidays I took a few patterns I had downloaded from the net to try out. (Freebies - hooray). I made a trip to Spotlight to buy some yarn, which is another point to fixate on. I stood in those aisles for way too long trying to make up my mind on what I wanted. I think Spotlight should employ someone who can just be there for a second opinion - for those of us who are shopping alone and just need to ask "what do you think - this one or that one?" At the end I was actually pretty disappointed with my choices, but they'll do. I need some lessons in yarn purchasing.
I also bought some new crochet needles, a set where each size is a different colour. Initially I thought this was awesome but I should have just stuck with plane metal ones as there is some friction with the coloured ones which is annoying when crocheting.
So, here are the results:
The Wagon Wheel Square found here. (That's the pattern I followed but there are a few of them about).
This is the Kingfield Sqare. You will find the pattern for it here.
So, now the next step is to decide which one to go with (or maybe do a few more patterns) and then make an afghan rug or something similar. Shall fixate on this for a while.
