    Taking Control

    I’m not suddenly branching out into lifestyle advice, I’ve finally got round to writing up my alterations to the Control Issues Granny Square It’s my favourite granny square pattern but it’s written to be worked in aran weight yarn and on a 5mm hook, whereas I tend to use DK and 4mm. This has meant that I’ve had to add 2 rows of double crochet and I think it loses something with that.

    Nearly forgot to do this post, the “annual review” ticked off the “I’ve summarised stuff” in my head, but thanks to my second year of Bullet Journalling I’m being slightly more organised.
