Adventures in Hooking Part... Whatever

I couldn't remember which of my squares I'd posted pictures of already so here they all are in their full glory! Everything I've done so far for the Art Of Crochet magazine blanket - only about a third of the finished thing. Not too shabby.

How To Make Your Ex-boyfriend's T-shirt Into A Shangri-Las T-shirt

This is a tutorial of sorts... although you may need to use your brain box to fill in any bits I've skipped over - sorry! I accept no responsibility for any drama that may arise from making your ex-boyfriend's t-shirt into a Shangri-Las t-shirt!

I love the super tiny stitching on the words, like little tiny fairy lights, aww! I don't know why the only things I ever make are pillowcases and pyjamas seeing as I never sleep! Boom!
