Hellebores

I think out of all the plants in my garden the hellebores have proved the most reliable and I love them for it.  They come back bigger and better every year, flowering for ages, scattering their seeds around and brightening up a corner of a garden that has very little winter interest.



I was quite pleased when I discovered that my hellebores kind of matched my yarn.



So pleased in fact that I thought I might try and crochet some.


Well, anyone could be forgiven for not knowing what they were if they hadn't been told first, but I think when arranged amongst the real ones they do bear a slight resemblance.  I used the pattern from here.

This month I'm joining in with the Cherry Heart Blanket Along to try and fall back in love with a blanket that I lost interest in only a third of the way along.


And to make some progress on these squares, 7 done only another 56 to go.  


Hope all is well out there ...
