I have just been experimenting with Boodles yarn which is made from recycled textiles. My first project is from my new crochet book - I succumbed and purchased a copy of Cute & Easy Crochet with Flowers written by Nicki Trench. I love the book and have had fun making my first crochet place mat. It still needs the flower embellishments, and I need a rest - it was very hard on my weak arms. The yarn is easy to work with in a technical sort of way but for me very hard in a physical way as it takes quite a lot of strength to pull the yarn through the loops when you double crochet.
off for a spot of feet up time now as I've got my first workshop
tonight - wow that sounds a bit scary but I am very excited.
Joining in today with Ginny, Marianne, Chrissie and Tami
