Crochet a Rainbow with me?

Back again, you know me I am a complete sucker for a good cause and when I saw this on Monday on Fi's blog I just knew I was going to participate!  Im a self taught crocheter (techie term I guess!) and doubt I could do anything other than a Granny Square but to be honest, that is all that is needed so I am happy!


Sarah London is behind this brilliant idea to help the people of the recent floods in Australia, namely Queensland and Victoria.  Go here to get more information.  Sarah has even loaded step by step photos for those of us that need a gentle reminder as to what to do so we can actually get going on a few Granny Squares!  Why not get your hook out with some spare wool and give it a go, it is so addictive!  Just watching tv last night I rustled up 5 squares, here's 3 of them.


Whilst I was sick I couldnt face any card making at all but not able to just do nothing I found myself whizzing up some snazzy socks for my daughter!  Now if I was to tell you that as a Mum of 2 young girls, I was very anal about socks!  They just HAD to be white and only white so for me to knit these, you can tell Ive had a bump to the head!!  Hope you like them!

Very impressed! Unfortunately I can't participate as I can't crochet!! And I am also equally impressed at the knitted socks, cos I can't knit either LOL. Now what is it I can actually do?! Hugs, Claire x

I love the colour of the socks! I don't think I have ever made granny squares but I might be tempted to give it a go.
