New Headquarters :) & Lockdown :(

This is my new workspace, I am so chuffed with the new office/craft room. Unfortunately since the room was completed Covid -19 has been a major aspect of everyones lives. So following UK government guidelines, I decided to shut my Etsy shop temporarily, until we can start going outside. This week was my first anniversary of starting Chasoben Designs, something that I never thought I would achieve. Celebrations are on pause, I thank the stars my family are safe and healthy.

So what to do in lockdown? Well I decided to recycle a crochet blanket I started for a CAL, which I didn’t have time to do at the time. Tbh it was too busy for my cup of tea. So then I had to think what to do with all that yarn? What pattern? Crochet or knit? I decided on blocks. Simple blocks. I decided on granny squares, but instead of the usual design, I decided on circle within a square, granny.

My Lockdown Blanket

I do an hour a day, when in the UK we have our daily update conference news report regarding the Coronavirus. It’s not just been a project to do whilst using up stash, it has also been a distraction. I suppose a comfort blanket 🙂

Thank you to all the NHS and all the key workers that are working so hard to keep us safe. Take care everyone
