Turtle Power

My Gran loves turtles and growing up living next to the beach she saw them quite often. She's due to have surgery soon so decided to make her a small gift of a turtle. He's called Terry.

Terry is made using Patons Jet wool and alpaca yarn. I crocheted him on a 5.5mm hook in the back loops to give a ridged effect. It produces a softer more snuggly style quite diff from my normal 3.5mm amigurumi. I may try a slightly smaller hook next time to close the holes a little.

I'll try and post an abbreviated pattern later.

Granny square from Grandma

Look what arrived in the post today. A granny square blanket from my Grandma.

My Gran knows I get cold and kindly made this lap blanket for me. Aaah!

The best presents are made with kindness and love. Not only do I have a blanket my Gran also taught me how to crochet. Thanks Gran.
