I have an urge .......
First thanks for all your lovely caring and complimentary comments on my last blog post, they made me feel a lot better :-) Mr Sweetpea is nearly better now and is back to work with his sore foot - just hope he can drive home again! We buried Petal under Eldest Sweetpeas oak tree behind the beach hut - I hope she likes it there.
Now I have to share with you an urge that I have. Is the urge to bungee jump ...... visit faraway lands ....... learn to fly a helicopter ..... do a degree in astro-physics ... buy a Camper van and pootle off around the country in it .... ?
Nope it is none of the above, my urge is to create my very own crochet ripple blanket (well to be honest the last thing on the above list is also an urge but I need to save up for that one for some time first :-(). This is where I need your help :-) I know a lot of you are very good at the crochet thing, can you help me with the following questions:
Do you know of a good yarn that doesn't cost a lot (as I want to save for that Camper :-)).
Does anyone know how many balls I may need for an average sized blanket?
Anyone know of where to buy yarn at a good price?
Thanks very much for reading about my urge :-)
