woyww #118 and cosy huffle sleeps

Well it's not a workdesk.  Its a floor.  And on my floor today, there is my workbasket (ooh look at me), and my knitting bag and granny blanket.  The only reason I have a work basket is because I need to keep the house ultra tidy in case we get any viewings.  So I keep what I am working on in my basket , tucked down the side of the settee.




Anyway, in my basket are some balls of wool (why aren't they in my wool bag?), some photo albums (still for my family album that I haven't stuck in!) A doll's knitting pattern (Mum brought it round AFTER I knitted Gunkey Monkey's jumper - oh well maybe I can knit Piglet one now).  My knitting bag just has many balls of wool in it and my blanket has grown a little bit more.


Doesn't Huffle look cosy? - he tucked his feet in, but a few more rounds and I think he might fit under it properly.  This project was supposed to be one I picked up now and again but I find it so hard to resist.  As soon as I sit down I have to start crocheting.  That is why I have nothing else to show.  Although in my defence I have been busy painting the house, cleaning and packing.  Can I be let off do you think?

Now go and look at some other desks, floors etc at http://stamping-ground.blogspot.com

p.s.  thank you for all your lovely comments.  I love to read them and I try to comment back.  I have been struggling to keep up with all the woyww participants lately and find it difficult to keep up with the regular blogs I follow.  Must try harder (sounds like my school report).

I love, love, love your crochet blanket. So much, in fact, that I think I'm going to have to buy a crochet hook. No, Jan, got to finish your current projects first... mind like a grasshopper, that's me! Good luck with the house sale! x

Wow that blanket is lovely - I have just bought a book on crocheted flowers this week and am determined to finally learn to crochet once and for all!

Your blanket looks so warm and cosy and bless your huffle for modelling it with such style :) Almost re-awakens the urge to crochet - almost, but not quite. But I can see how you can become addicted - just a few more stitches, just one more side, just one more complete row ... Elizabeth x #50

Never mind about trying harder, we all struggle with the number of desks, so don't sweat the small stuff. The blanket is just lovely. I have a mind to have a go myself. Danger Danger!!
well done on keeping the house together, it's blimmin hard work waiting for viewers!

What a fab blanket you are making. Just keep going with it - no need to do anything else that means taking lots of things out. Just crochet.#
Thanks for sharing - Hugs, Neet #4

Hi famfa, your blankie sure has grown, and there has been no cricket for you to sit at and crochet - it is amazingly big considering you are also planning a move, and not just any old move, a move to Canada no less!. You have inspired me as on our holiday I have also started a "grannie blankie". Its not a patch on yours, but it brings back memories of when I croched one when I was alot younger. I have still got it and my little one loves it. Things like these you can keep and they well become family keep-sakes xxx
