Clever Crochet

I learned to crochet for the first time when I was about 8.
Then I forgot how to do it for a very long time.
A couple of weeks ago, I went to my friend Jill's house, to learn how to  crochet for the second time.
 It was fab!
Thanks Jill. 

It has been my dream for a while now to crochet a granny blanket in bright colours.
And I've finally got started... 

1.  Choose a fine selection of yarns that colour match your favourite sweets.  Here, I've gone for a blend of Jelly Tots tones.

(Here's hoping I don't feel nauseous by the time I've finished the blanket.  I've been known to be a tad on the nauseous side of things when I've worked my way through a tube of Jelly Tots, the cheeky bleeders...  Sometimes it's hard to know when to stop.)

2.  Run amok, mixing and matching colours as you go.

3.  Sit back and marvel that your blanket is going to be good enough to eat.

I hope you're having a great day.
