When my sister comes, it is madness for the whole visit, we never stop.
She arrived with a suitcase, and most important of all, her bag of wool for a new crochet project
to make more of these for a crocheted throw for a friend. The friend chose the wool from the Internet.
The weather was threatening to become like this
so my sister was happily crocheting in front of the coal fire and I was knitting socks........
when suddenly she took a violent dislike to the dull colours - and the whole project.
What to do?
Go out in search of more wool! Now!
It had started snowing heavily but priorities are priorities.
We drove for half an hour to the local wool shop where they had so many beautiful colours we had to walk around the shop looking at objects other than wool to calm ourselves down. Then we found the most gorgeous bag made from crocheted hexagons in the back of the shop, in the workshop room.
After a while......
.............................we chose these colours.
Drove back home - snow? what snow? and found the pattern for the hexagons on the Internet here.
So far we've made these.
We've got other visitors too - they always come to Scotland at the same time as my sister.
They're waiting for more hexagons.
