The Mandala

I bought wool and downloaded the patterns for another crochet project to take on next weeks holiday, BUT I could not wait and had to start and now cannot stop working on it.

The wool is from Wool Warehouse, Stylecraft Special DK, one of my favourite yarns to work with.
The pattern is a free downloadable CAL [crochet along] called Queenies Mandala designed by Annamarie Esterhuizen. I joined her facebook group to be able to access the patterns, all quite easy and there are many different translations available.
Each week another part of the pattern is released, I am currently working on Part 5.
Winding my wool ready for use.

Work in progress

There are so many free patterns available and I have been hooked on collecting a few free CALs. I may have to live to be 150 if I want to complete everything!
Bluebird and Daisy by Tracey Driver I think will be next project as I would like to use up some of the wool I already have.
Jane Crowfoot's Frida's Flowers Blanket has some yummy flowers that are in my file of "must do".
Helen Shrimpton's Mandala Madness is just beautiful and again I am collecting the patterns.
Looking at the work in progress on all these CALs is so inspiring I want to make them all.

A few days in Norfolk

We decided to take a few days away in Norfolk and booked a chalet on the Sundowner Park. The chalet is pretty basic but has all mod cons. Ho...
