A crochet-y break

Testing yarn..
It's all about embroidery here at the moment, stitching things for for my book, but the other day I just needed  a wee break from it. And of course I turned to my trusty crochet hook and yarn. There's something so lovely about the rhythm of crochet.. and especially doing granny squares because I can pretty much do them with my eyes closed. I have on occasion crocheted at the cinema after they turned down the lights - that's almost like have your eyes closed, right? Also, it makes Tony wonder about my sanity, but hey-ho. ;-)

Testing yarn..
Anyway, back to the crocheting and the yarn. Because this is different yarn than I normally use. Usually I buy yarn in Denmark and bring it back to England. I just haven't been able to find proper soft cotton yarn here.

Until now, that is! I really like this Natura yarn from DMC. It's soft! And it comes in more than 30 colours! Which is great - even if not all the colours are quite as bright as the ones I get in Denmark. But there's a really delicious green, I think I have to get hold of some of that.. maybe make a happy green blanket. Uh, you know, once I've finished my book and stuff.. ;-)

PS - wanna learn how to make a granny square? I wrote a granny square tutorial a little while ago. :-)
