Very proud day

I've been very quiet about my crochet projects recently.
You might be forgiven for thinking I had given up and taken up sky diving instead.
But I haven't, all my recent projects have been secret one's, these include 2 new blankets.

Today I can finally share the first blanket - Lecchi.
Lecchi was designed and started while I was on holiday in Tuscany last year.
Lecchi marks the beginning of my orange triangle obsession, which I will blog about in the very near future.

Lecchi has just been published in a brand new British crochet magazine, its called Simply Crochet and comes from the same stable as Simply Knitting and The Knitter.
I was asked if I would like to be involved months ago and I was delighted and excited to be part of it.
But I had to keep it a secret.
Today is the day that Simply Crochet is launched in the shops - so I'm doing a happy happy dance.
Not only has Lecchi been published, but its also on the front cover.
