Making it up as I go along

My friend Debbie sent me some yarn last year from India...

I've been debating how to use it, and I still don't have a plan (thus the post title), but am going to start with some squares like this...

2 rounds black
2 rounds random (1 row of each colour)
1 round white
1 round random
1 round grey
I may also do some solid colour squares edged in grey to intersperse.
That's the plan so far. 
 The blanket will henceforth be known as the Debbie blanket!

The crocheted blankets and knitted beanies will go to a couple of charities...

 Reading Depths...

I'm linking this post in with Ginny's Yarn Along (which is back), so if you want to see what others are crafting/reading, go HERE.

And for your green fix...the back garden...
aka the jungle...and you thought I was joking!!

That's all folks!


  1. Loving the color combos on the Debbie Blanket. You do such beautiful work. The crochet blanket you sent me a number of years ago is so cheerful, it is used several times a week by at naptime for my younger grandchildren, or I cover up with it in the evening. And, when not in use it adds color to the room simply by sitting folded on the back of the sofa.

    I love your back garden, it looks like a fabulous space to chill in.

    Peace be with you,


    1. Thanks Bean :) I'm pleased the blanket is still proving useful.

      And re. the garden...it is a lovely space, if I could see past all the work that needs to be done and just enjoy it!

      And with you! xx

  2. Its all very pretty and I am intrigued by the book. I loved Wallander. And thank you so for the green fix! It is all dry and beige and dust here in the cold. Blessings! Here from Ginny's Yarnalong.

    1. Hi Tina! It is an interesting book. It's building slowly and I've no idea where it's going, which makes it all the more intriguing. Thanks for visiting! xx

  3. My goodness you have been busy. Colours to make you smile. Nice to see the green in your garden. We're in mud and stick season, and looking forward to putting seeds in pots again.

    1. Hi Cheryl! And I'm looking forward to some cool, wet, winter days:) xx
