African Flower Hexagon



I saw these on Pinterest here and had to give them ago. The pattern is from Heidi Bears' blog and is really easy to follow.



That said I used a different wool for the edges (fluffier to give it texture) aaaand I seem to have messed it up ... it just won't tessellate! going to have to try this one again. 

Or make a ball.

Band love

Guardian band of the day back in May, Alt-J are blowing my mind at the moment. I'm loving their album more and more with every listen. The songs work brilliantly individually and even better as a whole album.

Their melding of different styles creates a great atomosphere and I'm very much looking forward to seeing them play live later this year!

What's better than a good band? A geeky good band! They have playlists on spotify here

Crochet Blanket

I seem to love blankets a bit don't I... well I guess thats true, they are very snuggly and comforting and make great gifts for others (or for yourself)!

This is a crochet one I've just started from Comfort Knitting and Crochet which I got from Ve for my birthday this year.

I've changed the wool to Debbie Bliss Amalfi (it was on offer in John Lewis) and not used the dark navy blue.

 I'm still working on this in the background more pictures when it's finished!
