I have not been reading really, although I am still reading Jonathan Strange & Mr Norrell when I have the time. This doesn't bode well for my reading challenge 2015! I really must make more of an effort with reading.
This month I have a few Finished Projects to tell you about (I will leave that for another post I think), that I completed in April, but as with every knitter/crocheter I have a couple of other projects on the go!
I tried with all my energy not to be drawn into another KAL/CAL in the hope of getting some long term projects and plans completed but Mrs ID is a complete and utter enabler!!! The lovely Louise over at Knit British has done a wonderful series of blog posts about the traditional Hap and from this came the #hapalong. As I feel that most of my projects of late have been all about the knitting I wanted to avoid another KAL. I love crochet and just think I have not done enough of it lately.
Pop over to Louise's blog you will discover (if you don't already know) that the Hap is a tradition knitted shawl/blanket so that sorted it for me, I wont join in. Then Mrs ID casually mentions the latest post from Louise about the crochet versions, I pop over to read it and well between the two of them they convinced me and I now have a Hap on the hook! who knew!
So if you want to join in there is still plenty of time, there is a ravelry group as well as hash tags for instagram and twitter. so go check it out.
I am not one to melt into the crowds, I often like to have something bright and bold, so after I chose my pattern I went for the yarn.
Red, my favourite colour. the official cast on night was fun, with a social media hang out and a glass of wine. Cast off isn't until Mid July but I have already completed the centre panel of my Hap and I have the border to now complete which is several rounds (I am actually worried I will run out of yarn, even though I ordered enough). I am so enjoying this project but I font often get time to stop by ravelry and see what everyone else is doing.
I also have another crochet project on the go and a pair of socks I am knitting for me (yes me)
What projects are you working on?
