Granny Square Christmas

Happy Christmas from the Thimble household…

It has been such a long time since I have blogged. I decided that when I relaunched this blog that I would blog regularly, but sometimes life just gets in the way!

There has been a lot of ups and downs in the Thimble household lately, and it has left me with little left to share on my blog. Blogging for me is a bit of an indulgence, something I do for me, and when life is tricky, I dont feel able to indulge myself?!? I’m not entirely sure that even makes sense outloud, but it makes sense to me, in my head!

Anyway, enough of that, the important thing is that during this time, I have continued to craft, in fact, a lot of the time it is what has kept me sane. The gentle monotony of granny squares has come to be my saviour, as has the repetative round and round of knitting socks.

I can only share these with you now as they have all gone to their new homes for Christmas. They were a joy to make and lots of love went into each one. 

If you are new to granny squares, have a peep at my free pattern – 

Thanks for popping by

A lovely friend of mine recently asked me for a special commission.

As you already know from previous posts, I am not overly keen on commissions, as I prefer to make what I choose and then sell them when they are finished. That being said, I am also really bad a saying no and I love a challenge!

The pattern is available from Etsy Here

This is what they look like before sewing up! Not exactly shark like are they??

And this is the final shot!

The crochet itself is pretty easy, the pattern is well written, but the making up was a little more tricky!

If you are making these yourself, don’t miss out the placing of markers! They are crucial in the sewing up!!

That being said, I’m sure I’ll be making more!
