At Christmas time so many of us descend on others for a day of feasting and my husband and I went for Boxing Day to my sister’s.
I love a day with family and with mine that usually includes playing games and our Boxing day visit this year was no exception. (The game this year was Pass the biscuits) it’s really good fun!
As you know, if you regularly read my blogs I’m a keen crochet-er and like to find something simple to crochet whilst watching TV or travelling around, hospital visiting etc…
I found the instructions on YouTube for this simple little circle. (I would add a link but I can’t find the actual one I used now – it’s simply 18 treble crochet though, so if you crochet that’s simple and if you don’t, well you probably don’t need to know!)
At first I started joining as I went; using alternate red and white but then ran out of red and couldn’t find the exact match in my local shop.
So I took it apart and started making the circles in red, white and green finally joining them all at the end of my wool. (This saved cutting off all the ends as they were used to stitch each circle to the next).
My sister may be the Queen of Christmas – her whole house is transformed and so I thought she could cope with a Christmas throw…
She was very polite on opening it and here it is in situ:-
Thanks for reading – happy new year for 2019
