A 2nd Year of Projects

Good Morning Ladies!
I hope your weekend has got off to a good start!
It is ExTrEmElY wet and cold here at the moment!
But my Sweet William are still bringing the kitchen so much needed colour!

Right, back to the post title! After being inspired by Carole and Shelley, I am joining the 2nd Year of Projects over on Ravelry
I have compiled my list of projects I'd like to achieve, most of them (but not all) are taken from Nicki Trench's gorgeous book, Cute and Easy Crochet.

I know it's only a small list but with two small kiddie winks I think this is more achievable for me!
Here's my list:
1. Beautiful Bunting - Nicki Trench pattern

2. Something using the gorgeous Ripple pattern from Nicki Trench

3. A shawl of some kind - I LoVe this one!
4. Rainbow Granny Stripe Scarf - using Lucy's pattern.  I've already started this one as I was in need of a colour injection this week!

5. Rose Shopper - Nicki Trench

6. A tea cosy - there are sooooo many stunning patterns out there I have yet to decide on one yet! But, I ReAlLy like this one!!

7. A Blanket - pattern undecided also :) but possibly using the african flower pattern - not sure if it's a tad ambitious though! :)

8. And finally my One a Day Granny Cushion Cover.

So there we have it!  I'm off to join the project now, and I'll keep you all updated on my progress!



  1. Lovely projects!
    I have the same book; I made the bear and a blanket so far...
    A friend of mine made the tea cosy with flowers.
    I also love all those colours, makes me happy as well.

  2. morning Victoria,love all of the projects planned especially the shawl.I made one last week but run out of yarn for the fringing,it was just two balls of mohair that i'd picked up in the charity shop,it'll do the job for around the house,when its really cold we wrap our granny blankets around us but thats just a bit awkward :) as there so bulky~I'd like to have a go at this one,very pretty.
