One A Day Wk.7

What a glorious day it is for Tuesday Tallies. I have even been able to take pictures outside as it's so lovely and bright today. Quite unusual for November.
I have been able to keep up this week and there has been no operator errors! I am now at 81 hexagons!! You may notice that two of them have not been finished, this is because I have run out of yarn and my shopping trip was unsuccessful. So I have had to place an order online and am patiently(!) awaiting it's arrival.

Whilst decided where to take this weeks picture I tried it on my stairs. Big mistake!
I now want crocheted colourful carpet!

I can't believe how good it looks there! Highly impractical and incredibly expensive, but gorgeous! 
My helper is alao sneaking into the picture,  trying to pull it down!

I have finished my NOEL and hope to reveal tomorrow or Thursday. I'm really pleased with how it has come out. 

EEK, I've just booked myself on a class on Saturday for sock knitting!! It something I've wanted to try for ages but find the patterns and 4 needles quite overwhelming!!! I'll let you know how I get on. 

Now I'm off to Gingerbread Girls to see all the other One A Day projects, this is my favorite part of Tuesday Tallies.


  1. wow your blanket looks amazing on the stairs, such beautiful colours.

  2. It's so nice to see that someone else has painted stairs... and I see what you mean about wanting a stair carpet like that though...but honestly, it would be far too beautiful to walk on! We are neck and neck with our tally...I'm on 81 too! :)x

  3. It looks great on the stairs. You may have to make a runner.

  4. Hi!
    This is so pretty! Your right it does look good on the stairs. Have a great day!

    Food for Thought

  5. I reckon you've found a niche in the Market! Carpet crocheter extraordinaire!

    They look really lovely as ever, and I'm looking forward to seeing you Noel!

    Have fun in your class.......four needles......ones enough for me!

  6. You might have to make a plan there! An on the little bench it looks oh so Cath Kidstonish. Nice.

  7. LOL Colourful carpet sounds divine! And yes I can see why you would like it. I absolutely love the picture on the blue seat though. Really lovely!

  8. Fantastic spots to take pics of your hexagon blanket! Gosh! 81? You are hardcore compared to my measly 32.
    How do you keep white stairs clean? Love that color of the bench also.

  9. oh my goodness your blanket looks amazing on the stairs i love it. i couldn't crochet a carpet i wouldn't want anyone to walk on it lol.

  10. Crocheted carpet looks fab! And good luck with the socks - you'll love it, Judy x

  11. Fabulous colours. Wouldn't a crochet carpet like that be so fantastic, if only there was a way to keep people from walking on it.

  12. Wow it does look gorgeous as a carpet! I also really love it on the blue outdoor seat, the colours match perfectly!

  13. Lovely photographs, both on the stairs and outside. I hope your new yarn arrives quickly!

  14. This is a lovely "crochet carpet". Your colors are gorgeous. Thank you for visiting my blog. Good luck with your sock class. I've wanted to try it too but I'm afraid I can't do it. I am anxious to here how it goes.

  15. Against the white stairs it just looks so beautiful! However, not very practical


I know time is precious, so thank you so much for taking the time to leave me a message xxx
