What a beautiful yarn - I'm not usually that keen on crochet but this looks really lovely! And a clever idea, too, both yours and the original wool Advent calendar. At this time of year, however, I'm generally desperately behind on gift knittng, so I simply wouldn't have time lol (a bit like the Yarn Harlot!!)... I defnitely get my daily knitting fix as I madly knit on - two jumpers finished off just last night! ;o

Callmemadam

Brilliant and original idea!

Elaine

what an excellent idea! one I may copy if you don't mind :)

Cornflower

I hadn't crocheted for years until I got the urge recently to do a few squares and see what might emerge.
Well done you with your jumpers, Swissrose! I'm still doing my usual evening knitting, just aiming to add these 'extra' things in to some spare minutes earlier in the day. That's the plan, anyway!

Cornflower

Thank you!

Cornflower

Go ahead, Elaine, and I wish you much enjoyment!

Grace

What a lovely idea! If I weren't up to my eyeballs in work, I would join in too. I will keep it in mind for next year ... Have fun!

Cornflower

Thanks, Grace. I think the trick is to limit it to a short while each day (e.g. a coffee break) so that it's not hard to fit in and doesn't feel like a huge task.

Rebecca

I have just recently re-encountered Madeline Tosh (vintage, in my case) and my, I have fallen hard! Enjoy your projects.
