SIMPLY COLOUR........


My Opal Advent calendar twenty-four mini-balls of loveliness are disappearing fast! I'm on a roll! I'm just a teensy-weensy bit addicted! I'm pretty much totally addicted! I'm in love! This colour blast is simply amazing and just what is needed on cold, dark January evenings.


These little beauties are not quite uniform in size. My tension when crocheting these has clearly not been consistent, but with a little bit of blocking I'm sure they will be fine. I'm planning on completing in another round on each square and joining as I crochet. It will be a new venture! Wish me luck!


Oh my word! How I love these! 


I've used sixteen balls on the first four socks. Each sock takes four balls, right down to the very last few inches. How luck is that! I'm now onto sock number five and mini-ball number eighteen, so not many more to go. Every last inch of gorgeousness will be used to complete six socks and forty-eight Granny squares. 


Then what!!!!!!! Well, there is a hidden away secret stash of all the sock yarn remnants ever used chez Snoops' with the added addition of a fair few swaps from Josiekitten and other mini-skein additions. These tiny lovelies are hibernating and awaiting a warm caressing hand to gently welcome them back.................. yep, they need some tender love and care. Sock Yarn Blankie your wait may be over!


Colour has not only been in evidence on Snoops' needles and hook; our Norfolk skies this week have been ablaze with colour. This shot was taken on Wednesday evening at around 4.30p.m. It doesn't really do justice to the stunning natural beauty that slowly paled and disappeared as the sun went to bed.


Then there was this little pop of colour that burst forth yesterday morning. How I love these sweet little early reminders that Spring is not too far away!
