it's a SLIPPERy slope...

...this crochet
Been beavering away today making these

(excuse sock lines and corned beef legs lol

I followed this pattern here just added a couple more rows as I didn't have the correct weight of wool and a big enough hook and a loop at the back to help me pull them on.

Been Making new friends.....

.....Literally lol
 Meet Norman (right) Nigel (left) first attempts at 3d crochet. I couldn't sleep last night so decided to have a little play. So far I have only ever crocheted a granny square blanket and a couple of flowers so I don't think I did to bad for a first attempt..I (sort of) followed this pattern here ...obviously a lot of room for improvement lol But I thought I would have a go before shelling out on some more moulded patterns. I think it be quite addictive :)

Many Many...


For all your lovely messages of hugs and support.
My Sis is doing marvelously. It has mainly affected her left leg/arm and her speech was just a little slurry..her speech seems to have righted itself already though :) She has been given a splint/brace thing for her leg and is managing to walk really well with it and says it feels better everyday. They do think there is more to it and she has had a lumbar puncture yesterday to test for MS, we just have to wait for the results. But all in all she is doing fab and is hoping to be home tomorrow or Thursday...fingers crossed  :)

Much love to you all and thanks again
