Marina Piccola is dashing along dandily now I know how to do it - amazing! But it was too dark to photograph that elusive purple / blue yarn, so it will have to wait for the weekend.
Meanwhile, I cancelled my pre-order for "Knitting Little Luxuries" and replaced it with "Crochet Me".
If you have seen the previews, maybe you will forgive me. If you haven't, take a look and perhaps reconsider your attitude to crochet - this collection has certainly made me rethink my prejudice against the doily-making craft! The biggest thing I have ever crocheted was a rasta beret in purple mohair. And I just polished off a pile of flower brooches. But a full-size dress?
