Has it really been

...........3 months since my last post?! So much happens in three months, I am just going to jump in.

Want to share some pics of the crocheted mats that I have made. They are made from crocheting three strands of 100% wool together. I used a light medium and dark strand but the possibilities are endless. I chained approx. 52 stitches. I used three skeins of each colour which makes a mat 2 feet by 3 feet. The mats are thick and chunky. The picture below shows four different colour ways. .
Here is a close up of the crochet stitch I used. A half double crochet stitch.
The blue one I used mainly scraps. The other two were done with the same three colours, through out, like the one pictured below.

I got the wool from  a little shop not far from where I live. Lismore Sheep Farm They have many different colours and they will mail to anywhere. All the info is on their site.

Good to be blogging again.

Watch out for todays blessings.
