Hello my Sunny Hookers! Sorry for being a little late to the Attic with Part 9 today, we've been out soaking up some much needed sunshine and (dry) fresh air this morning after so many days cooped up sheltering from the rain and floods. We attempted our annual Boxing Day visit to my lovely in-laws yesterday but had to turn back as the road into the town was under water and not passable in the car. It's been terrible to witness such devastation in our local area, so many homes and buildings damaged by overflowing rivers and rapidly rising flood water. I've been glad of some gentle, colourful hooky these past few days, I often wonder what do other folk do when they need to occupy their hands and minds in order to find peace and relaxation? Crochet is such a fabulous feel-good thing to pass the time with, it has magical therapeutic properties and I truly love it for that.
So here we are with part 9 of the Sunny CAL, time to crochet up the last two squares of this blanket.......eeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeep! So exciting to be almost there with these squares! I am itching to begin the joining process but I confess that I've still got rather a lot of ends to darn in first. For that reason, I'm going to give us all two weeks now before we begin the joining and border, enough time to tidy everything up and make sure all squares are nicely blocked and ready for joining. Part 10 will be on Sunday 10th January.

Make sure you keep your marker in place to tell you which is strip 1 - when we come to start joining the squares it'll be very important to get them all the right way up! I hope you have a really fabulous few weeks ahead and enjoy taking these Sunny colours into the start of a sparkling New Year. See you with part 10 in 2016!
