Friday I visited the Ekka (Royal QLD Show) and had a ball, I haven't been to a royal show since I was 15 and as I'm relatively new to Brisbane was keen to check it out. My fav part was the animals in show, here are a few highlights.

What a stressful day, actually it has been a really stressful week. How do I de-stress? Crochet of course! Tonight I'm watching an old 80's movie and working on my chevron blanket. The pattern I chose has me single crocheting at the back of each stitch and this creates a nice rib pattern adding another element. I'll probably crochet a few inches in pink then switch to grey.

Finally I've started a chevron afghan just for me. I'm using 8ply soft carnival acrylic yarn in pink and grey purchased from BigW. Normally I'm a strict 100% wool gal but this carnival yarn is really soft and lovely and such pretty colours too that I couldn't resist. I'm using the free pattern below from ravelry if you're interested in crocheting along with me.
More progress pics to follow as I go along. The chain (counting) was the hardest along with the first row but after that its much easier and less counting. I tied coloured yarn in a different colour every time I chained 50 as there were 252 chains in this, it helped keep count of where I was up to.
Have a great weekend, happy hooking!
