crochet and london

LONDON VISIT1

We visited a wet and cold London, Nottingham and Kirkby-in-Ashfield earlier this week. It was my daughter’s first overseas visit … and her first job interview.

LONDON VISIT2

I couldn’t think of anything better to do than crochet, while in transit.

LONDON VISIT3

For the first time (yes, it’s hard to believe) I’m making a blanket for MYSELF! I’m crocheting one block a day (or rather I’m trying to), using a diagram I found on a Russian website.

LONDON VISIT4

This trip was all about business, so not a lot of sight seeing, unfortunately. We visited Chelsea Harbour Design Centre, with hundreds of flowers suspended from the central domed window, stayed at the Mercure Hotel in Nottingham (lace was first manufactured in this market town in the 6th century), toured the warehouses and sampling factory of The Romo Group just north of Sherwood Forest,

and met Betty, a 10 week old French Bulldog.

LONDON VISIT5

Back home, I discovered that all my beautiful fragrant roses are in bloom.

Much like my one-block-a-day blanket.

I love crocheting this design in these colours SO much, that, after London, I’m actually a little ahead of just one block a day. If you’d like to try this pattern, you’ll find it here.

Have a great weekend…
