I've decided to post my very first pattern - a Santa Hat on Raverly, here it is:

I did manage to get two crochet projects finished: My newly named
'Coconut-Ice baby blanket' for Rachael and Steve's little bundle of joy - due in 2 weeks. It was only when I was sewing in the ends that I realised, this was the first blanket I've made (apart from the monsterous, never-ending granny square I made as I learnt to crochet!).
The second project is a birthday present for my English friend - Karen - living in Australia, a scarf and wrist warmer set. After realising that Karen's birthday was looming and wondering what I could make for her, I suddenly remembered that, hoorah!, it's winter in Oz. As she lives up in the beautiful Blue Mountains my sister suggested I could make her my first ever scarf! With the colours I had in my stash, I've called it the 'English Rose Scarf' and added the rose as a little feature.
The scarf pattern I used is the Acacia Scarf from Ravelry by Megan Marshall, but I changed the pattern very subtly to fit with these colours, and the wrist-warmers are my own design - the second ever pattern I came up with. I have a pair myself (of course) that I wore to death this winter. I made them from some gorgeous Debbie Bliss Cashmerino aran, yummy! :D

My mind has been buzzing all day with new crochet ideas, and I want to do them all now now now! I need to finishing typing out the pattern for my little bags - a couple of which are now in Etsy for sale - but that's boooring and I've got to get going on my Teddy Bear's Picnic scene - got some great ideas for it, I'm very excited about it :D
Am very hungry, going to look for chocolate to eat and maybe boil some potatoes...

I did get a parcel today, probably my last purchase for a while, 10 cones of 100% cotton. Not much to get excited about for most people, but it was doubly exciting for me since I didn't even know what colours I would get! Can't wait to get going with it now...
The moose has been weighing heavy on my mind today, not really sure why, but I would like to get him finished. I think Sunday will have to be 'Moose Day' :)

Soooo, I've got myself a Blog...hmmm...what to write on my blog...I've set up this blog, mainly so I can post some of crochet patterns (when I get round to writing them up that is). I was supposed to be doing that this weekend, but got rudely interrupted by one of my wee beasties, Jekyll, having to have emergency surgery instead. How rude! He's not yet home from the vets, have been waiting all morning for the phone call. Its 10am and I was hoping they would have called by now, I suppose it is a Sunday and vets need lie-ins too, do they? But my little baby is poorly and I want him home :(
10.50 am finally the vets do call. He'll be coming home at 4pm :)
