2x 25g Sirdar Firefly in red
Keep going until you finish all the yarn.
I love the effect but got very bored knitting it. However my MIL loves it so it was worth it.

1 x 100g Sirdar Wow in Mulberry - all used
2 x 50g Sirdar Funky Fur in Valentino - 9g left
2 x 50g Sirdar Denim Tweed in pink - 49g left
Firstly using a 9mm crochet hook I did a long chain in Sirdar Wow & then worked two Treble chains into each stitch. I learnt how to do this at the crochet workship run by the Knitting & Crochet Guild which I attended with Andrea whilst at the The Knitting & Stitching show. I then consulted Hello Mango & she gave me some crocheting advice which gave me to confidence to carry on.
Double stranding the Sirdar Funky Fur & Sirdar Denim Tweed & using a 7mm hook I repeated this for another row. Finally using the two yarns together again I did single trebles into each stitch.
This has been my first crochet project & kept me busy for two afternoons & evenings whilst watching TV - perfect post-Christmas crafting!

Best of all all 3 yarns used were stash inhabitants & have now left my cupboard! A friend of mine has been having a tough time recently & it'll be a hug from me to keep her warm.
Now a sneak preview of what I'm currently working on.
I'd also like to wish everybody a Happy New Year. I can't have a drink tonight to bring in the New Year as I'm on medication but the Champagne is on ice for tomorrow night!
BTW: I wrote a draft of this post yesterday with the yarn details etc but posted today on 31/12/5. However the date still says 30/12/5 & I can't find anyway of changing it - any ideas??? The time is also incorrect.
