GAD 296 & 297

It's been a busy few days here at Crochet Head Quarters!

I have been following a very badly written pattern for a tea cosy that took my fancy, so I ended up Googling "Granny Crochet Tea Cosy" to see if there was any help / another pattern available that I could use to resurrect my tea cosy starter, and I think that I am getting there.

Therefore yesterdays' GAD was a simple plain Red Square

But there is nothing to be apologetic about from my point of view as I love Red and it's GAD 296.

Then today I took a Beginners Crochet Lesson which went really well.  M was a talented starter and soon got into the swing of things, mastering the Foundation Chain, Slip stitch, DC, HTR & TR's.  I have given her some homework of working in rows so that she can practice her newly found skills.

So just enough time for GAD 297


  1. I haven't come in lately to send you over to see how my granny a day blanket is going.

    Still itching to have it done, especially since it's getting colder at night.

    1. Hi Marsha, life gets so busy at times doesn't it? I will pop by your blog and take a look at your blanket - I am sure it looks FAB. Yes, like you I am itching to get it finished as it's getting colder here too! Thanks for stopping by. Ali x
