Another fun thing that I missed out on blogging during our trip was this crochet cricket set that I developed for the father's day edition of Simply Crochet mag, Issue 18. This is one of my most favourite projects ever and the first one that Jonno has played with. I wanted to think of something that he would really love and being cricket mad, I thought an indoor set would be perfect.
The thing that I loved most about the project was how the colour palette worked out giving the set a vintage look - I also wanted the cricket bat to have a cricket vest rib to it AND the wicket to stand up on its own....
The boys were great at strength testing the bat and wicket.
And in this month's issue there is a lovely review about 'Stanley and the Hot Air Balloon'. So exciting!
And tomorrow I have a truly wonderful book to review that you are going to love so please pop by.
Love Kate. xxooxx.
