Golden Brown

It's Keryn's turn this week to set the dare, and it's to use golden highlights. You know how you go through phases with colours, well gold's not been one of my colours recently so I found this a real challenge. In the end I picked brown to go with the gold and they work really well togetherIt's an olde gold rather than a bright bling one and I like the subtleness of it.

Other exciting news, I've learnt to crochet! I found it really hard only having one needle, not that I would count myself as a knitter since I can only do plain stitch at the moment. So far I have made lots of tangled bits of wool with lumpy bits that the cats love playing with but I've also managed to make a sort of square, okay it looses stitches and gets thinner but its a start. I'm going to try this pattern next and see if I can make a flower!

Love this, so beautiful. Good luck with the crochet, it is one thing I haven't yet mastered, I can go round and round but nothing fancy, it would be fab to learn to do properly, I eagerly await to hear your progress!
