Yarn, *Tick*, Needles, *Tick*... Woo, Im ready!

Hola! :)

Today I finally got the yarn I need for My design for the Dal (design along) on Ravelry!

I'm soo happy, I got it in hobby craft today. I got two balls of candy pink for the main parts of the gloves and then some in a coral pink for parts of the little flowers. The candy pink yarn was £1.99 per ball and the coral pink yarn was only 99p per ball, they were having a sale. So not only did I get some lovely soft yarn it didn't cost me a fortune either :D

I was also pleased because when I got home I found that I had some circular needles in the size I needed too, I thought I was gunna have to buy some of those too, but no! :0)

Ohhh I can't wait to start!

But first is the matter of a tension square....

Check you later! :)



  1. Jordan, all your fantastic crocheted stuff you show on your blog is so cool, that it has inspired me to (restart) learning crochet! Any good websites that could help me out???

    Thanks :)

  2. Knittinggirl: Hey :) Thank you very much! I mainly used youtube to teach myslef as that allows you to see exactly what is going on. Just type in what you want e.g how to crochet or how to double crochet etc... and then watch and give it a try, don't give up no matter how tangled you get, just keep tying and you will get there in the end! I did so you will too :0)

  3. Thanks, I've tried to learn in the past, but I failed... Second time can be the charm, right??? :)

  4. Definately! I tried then kind of gave up but then kept tried again after that and slowly I got it :) Ravelry is also great if you have specific questions, someone drew a diagram for me and put it up about how to crochet from the chain you make at the start, that really helped me! :0) There are loads of helpful people on there.

  5. I can now do chain stitch, single, double and treble crochet! Am now learning how to crochet on the round. I'll send you a pic of the first (proper) thing I crochet :)

  6. Oooooh, well done! :D That would be great :)


Please do share your thoughts or ask any questions. I always reply, Promise! :)
