Daniel Craig

Here comes the 25th (Bond that is)

If you have been sleeping over the last few months you will not of heard that Daniel Craig is coming back for the 25th Bond film. Which is exciting if you think (as I do) Daniel is one of the best, if not the best Bonds ever. As all you who have read my blog before you will know all about the Bond Project and the blanket that came from it. If you are new to my blog then I would suggest you can read all about it from these links The names Bond, Project Bond     Daniel Craig is impressed (WELL ALMOST).

Right where was I, Oh yes, Bonds next film. Rumors abound about this film who, what, when? The film is supposed to follow the plot of a book not by Ian Flemming but a book called Never Dream of Dying by Raymond Benson with the working title of Shatterhand. If you need any proof that this is the case then just look how the price of this book (even used ones) has gone up and up.

This has put the wife in a bit of a predicament with the free pattern she has given away. Does she change it to fit a block into it for the new Bond film and if so what does she put into the block? Does she keep the Bond blanket new and fresh or just stop it all now? Well what would you do?

We are currently listening to the book as an audio download, which means we can do other things like work (working from home helps with this) or crocheting. I must admit though we do have to keep going back and listening to certain bits because we were disturbed or lost concentration for a little bit. There has been one or two things that stand out, but will the film be exactly as the book?  Do we want to waste time planing and designing a new block and then find it is not in the film or it has been updated which makes the pattern of no use for this project and would it be out-of-place.

The question is does any one out there know? Has anyone an idea? Oh to be in the know.  The wife is designing, moving things around and making plans for crocheting another revamped Bond blanket but all that could change so watch this space.

As always make this world a better place by keep going on with the crocheting.

May you basket or container be always full of yarn.

Bond finished 1 (2)

The beat, sorry Bond goes on.

The popularity of the Bond project goes on and on. Who would have thought that when it was started it would be so popular? People are still looking and getting the patterns to do it. Someone from the USA looked at the patterns eighty times in one day!! We knew the patterns were good and we are thrilled that it has impressed a lot of different people.

We got a lovely message from Jennifer Hart-Bilmer with a photo of her finished blanket which looks great. this is the reason why Jennifer made it. ‘My dad is a huge James Bond fan. As soon as I seen the first square I knew I had to make it for him. There is a lot of work and love in this afghan and it was worth it! Thank you for sharing your awesome graphs. You did a fantastic job making them!’ 😊

This is such a lovely story, I hope you dad likes it (I am sure he will). When you get messages like this, it makes all the hard work worth while. All the hard work the wife did that is. If there is any one else who would like to share please do. Thanks once again for all the comments and likes.

Also this week we were messaged by Ivano Cheers who was the stunt double for Daniel Craig in the latest bond film, thanking me for mentioning him in the blog called Daniel Craig is impressed (well almost). Ivano thinks it is a nice post, so if Daniel is not impressed Ivano is. Ivano is filming a film of his own at the moment (I hope it is a success). It was good to hear from him. You can see more of him on Facebook or Instagram. So you never know who is watching you or reading your blog.

Until the next time happy hooking.
