There she goes again


It seems that as soon as I master one granny square pattern, I discover another and start a whole new project.  Well, maybe not project but certainly procrastination activity.  I can't remember the name of the wool but it's cotton and crochets like a dream; it has a fresh, heavy, solid weight and intensity of colour to it that wool rarely provides, and I shall be returning to the shop to buy more as soon as my essay deadline has been met.

The pattern is called 'snowflake' and was thought up by the fantabulous textile designer, Rose Sharp.  It was featured in my favourite crafty magazine, Cloth, which wonderfully manages to be completely hip and non-fuddyduddy.

How am I not surprised you're already on to the next thing? Mind you, my blog was born out of sheer procrastination during precious dissertation time. Ha.

I am in complete AWE of you! haha, you call "procrastination" what I would refer to as "that time I spent an entire month watching crafting how-to videos on youtube." I love it, and I freaking love your blog :)
