FO Friday 09/03/12

Good Afternoon everyone :-)

I got my brain back a bit more this week :-)
I've managed to get my crochet mojo back.
I am still struggling with pain & fatigue, and can't do it for too
long but I can at least make things again :-)

My first FO is a hat:

I bought this pattern from:

My 2nd FO for this week is a fantastic pattern.
I won this pattern from:

I loved making this pattern!
It was easy to follow and very cute!

This is a beautiful baby gift!
I would highly recommend this pattern!

I have also managed to finish a book I've been trying to read for the last 4 months.
I really enjoyed this book - Virals Kathy Reichs
I wasn't sure I was going to at the start but once I got into it all changed.
There are really good main characters and the characters are well written.
There are also other characters that fit into the story really well.
I loved the end and I loved the fact the story had all sorts of twists and turns in it.

I also read a really good book with my son this week.

This book is fantastic for adults to read as well as children.
It's sarcastic, funny and interesting.
The story is also short enough to be perfect for reading to my 5 year old
at bed time.
The drawings are fantastic and match the story perfectly.
I would highly recommend this book.

I hope you are all having a good Friday and meet some of the other
fantastic FOs.
