I made a little more progress on the Polstitches Hardanger SAL, I am on Week 3 and managed about a quarter of what needs doing. I now have the final weeks instructions, the scary cutting bit and hopefully will get around to completing Weeks 3 and 4 later this week or early next.
Crochet Unravelled by Claire Bojczuk as it had left handed instructions as well as the usual right handed ones. Since that time on and off I had tried to do a granny square but just could not get past round 2 with any success. I then found a different style of Granny on a blog which was successful for me, and was in a previous post, but not one to be thwarted by something, I persevered and have now successfully done the Granny from this book.
I have also ordered this pack of yarn from Deramores to make a granny square bedspread it is the Stylecraft Special DK Colour Pack.
So that is all the crafting I have done. Since my last post I have also done the following: -

As my Dad has been unwell we took a short break home to the Isle of Wight to go see him, he isn't too well sadly but will see the specialist this week, they now seem to think it could be a pneumonia linked TB that is causing his breathing difficulties.
Below are photos of us getting on the chain ferry from East to West Cowes, I think for a two minute journey it must be one of the most expensive pieces of water at £2 a crossing now. And a photo of me with my Dad's cute dog Nipper, for a terrier he has the loveliest of temperaments.
