My name’s not Joseph….

…but I do have an amazing technicolour dream coat.  Well I sort of do.

You know I mentioned that on Monday I may have been a bit enthusiastic with my wine intake and sung and danced down the path to my front door?  (Sister 2 informs me that it wasn’t just the neighbours who I may have disturbed, it was most of the street).  Well the song was inspired not by my days in the local choir (yes, really) when we performed Joseph in the village hall, but by my newest creation.

I’ve been crocheting like a mad old spinster with a cat. Oh….

Anyway, I’ve been crocheting madly for a few weeks and finally finished my first big project which was

I realise it’s not to everyone’s taste, but it’s kept me out of trouble for a while :o)

Should you be a crochet type of person too, the pattern is in a book called ‘Crochet in No Time’ by Melody Griffiths although I did alter it quite a bit – I made it shorter, built up the neck a lot, added buttons and missed out the pom poms.  And it can’t be that difficult as I only learned to crochet 5 months ago :o)

And just because you have to do a bit of swirling in a thing like this, one final picture :o)
