This week I’ve been a busy bumblebee!
With knowing that 2016 was coming to an end, I’d been crocheting like mad to get my Temperature Blanket finished. On New Year’s Eve, I was counting down the squares I had left to do as the time ticked away. With Chris working hard on decorating the bedroom nearly all week. He decided on NYE to park in front of the television for a bit. We ended up watching the Call The Midwife Christmas Special and playing Rummikub. I hadn’t watched the CTM Christmas Special on Christmas Day because I figured the boys wound’t want to sit through it. We had a good time and it was really nice to hang out.
Then again this wasn’t really a Little Makes – it’s about 2m long by 1.5 wide! Oops! Big Make there!
There’s this lovely wool called Caron Cakes and it’s a Michael‘s Exclusive. Yep – you can’t get it here in the UK. My very lovely friend who works in New York was back for Christmas and was willing to bring me back a couple of balls. (I had one and the rest were to share with my Mum, her bestie and bestie’s daughter). It’s so soft – it’s no surprise it’s been really popular!
So what is my Little Makes for this one? I headed for Ravelry as it’s generally a good starting place. I found a pattern called Debut by Katiuscia Bayslak (aka The Yarn Juice). I had a few issues with making sure I had the right number of stitches but after three or four attempts I figured it out.

I’ve never taken part in a Crochet-A-Long but this one starts today and I’ve still not decided on my colours – I think I am going to work my way thorugh the different colours in my stash and come up with something crazy. You can find more information over on Attic24’s website. (Specifically here but there will be more info up soon!). I’ll be sure to share my pictures as I get going.
