My creative space

I am joining in again with Thursday's fun My Creative Space at Kootoyoo.

Left to right:
  • Wendy Pearl DK - balls of beautiful yarn (75% Mercerised Cotton, 25% Viscose) in Raffia 1804 and Bamboo 1805

  • Start of a granny square

  • Completed squares
This evening I have been taking stock of the afghan rug, that I have been crocheting since last year. Work has been completed almost exclusively during down-time spent in waiting rooms. With 176 days and 9 squares under my belt, I am averaging a square every 19.5555555556 days.

In order to be warm and toasty by winter, I need more yarn. And more appointments.

Thank you very much Kirsty for hosting My Creative Space. Its great fun seeing what everyone is doing. To see who else is showing their creative space (or to join in), head over here.


  1. you are multi talented with this crochet.....love the mushroom colour

  2. I wish you more yarn... but I'm not wishing for more waiting rooms. I wish you more time on the couch to crochet instead!

  3. I agree, that is a heavenly colour you have there. My mother used to call that shade "elephant's breath". What a vivid description!

  4. I think my rate may be slower than yours.

    I should get a few done at the boys gym comp on Sunday though.

  5. Anyone who can knit/crochet has my respect. That's something that I have been wanting to learn but can't seem to do!

  6. Oh Liesl, how could I have missed this?! Great news - we shall granny square along together!

  7. HI,
