Holiday Hiatus

The last ten days have been, well, AMAZING.  My sister and her family stepped onto Tasmanian soils for the very first time, and we’ve spent the last week gallivanting across the countryside seeing amazing national parks and secret crystal white beaches.  I’ve had an absolute ball and it will be a sad day on Friday when she finally has to fly home.

As you may be aware, she began to get jealous of my crocheting exploits and starting crocheting herself a couple of weeks ago.  Well, we’ve had a lovely time in the evenings over the last week working on our granny squares for the Crochet-Along that we are involved with.  My latest finished square is below, although the green yet again looks yellow in this photo (this is what happens when you don’t wait to take photos during daylight hours!).

Square 5I loved the granny ripple pattern, and can totally see myself making a whole blanket out of it for my nieces.  My great aunt made a granny ripple blanket for both my sister and I when we were babies, and we both still have the and use them everyday (I actually curl up under it on the couch and crochet!).  I’d like for my nieces and children (if I have any in the future) to have that same family connection.
