#WIWOHH = What I'm Working On (Hooky Hare) (because #WIWO is well used already).

I'm going to try and post regular updates here and on Instagram about what I'm up to, using the above hashtag (trying to find a # that hasn't already been used thousands of times is quite difficult!).

It's mainly about my WIPs, but I'm also going to include things like what book I'm reading, or what I'm watching on tv.

If you'd like to join in and use the hashtag to show me what kind of crafty projects you're working on, or other hobbies/interests (but, y'know, keep it 'appropriate' 😉) that would be great, otherwise it'll just be me talking to myself!

Something like this:

~ Crochet ~

I've started making a stash-busting blanket using Lucy's Cosy Stripe pattern. I've picked out 15 random colours from all my Stylecraft DK (where I had at least one full 100g ball), and I've used them all once so far, as you can see in the photo:

It's folded up here - it's actually about single bed width
Photo doesn't really show the colours very well, but from bottom to top they are: Raspberry; Sherbet; Lavender; Jaffa; Matador; Bright Green; Fiesta; Aspen; Shrimp; Pomegranate; Turquoise; Magenta; Sunshine; Bright Pink; Candyfloss. Then I'll start all over again with Raspberry.

~ Reading ~

Currently reading The Road to Little Dribbling by Bill Bryson.

It's kind of a sequel to Notes From A Small Island, where he travels around the UK making humorous (but mostly affectionate) observations about the places he visits. I'm not getting through it very quickly but it's not that kind of book; each chapter is a bit like a short story so you can just pick it up as and when.

~ Watching ~

The second series of Fortitude. Love it! Managed to download the whole series in one go, and I actually finished watching it on Monday night. Can't really talk about it because *spoilers* but OMG!!! Didn't realise I'd got to the end though, because it didn't feel like the end, so I hope that means Season Three? I didn't really understand a lot of what was going on, but it still had me gripped, although I don't think it was as good as series One. Even though I've seen it now, I'll probably still watch it every Thursday evening. Maybe I'll spot things I didn't see the first time around?

I think that's it for now. If you want to join in, use #WIWOHH on Instagram so I can see what you're up to (not in a stalking way though 😉)

Bye for now xx
