- Its the school holidays..........
- I'm actually finding time for some proper sorting through the chaos this week......
- I've nearly finished my stripe (I can't believe it, I think the crochet elves must have be working on it at night, as it was nowhere near big enough, and now it nearly is!)
- I found two balls of cotton for my one-a-day that I somehow misplaced, and all is right with the world again! (I am officially not going mad!!)
That is 48 squares!
I went into my LYS on Saturday and I bought their last ball of the cotton that I've been using, and resigned myself to a re-think. Last night I decided that I would do one more row of six and call it a day at 54, to make sure I had enough cotton to do the border...........but today..................I have been given a gift in the shape of two more balls hiding upstairs. Therefore the (now) plan is to carry on to the 64 squares intended in the pattern, knowing I will have enough for those and the border...................pheeewww!
I must be a simple girl, as it is the simple things that make me feel like I'm going to burst with happiness!
I am so excited at the prospect of finishing my stripe this week that I am having difficulty containing myself!
Anyway.......enough about me........to see other peoples' one-a-day work, check out Gingerbreadgirl's blog
P.S. A friend sent me this link to the British Sun newspaper yesterday and my liking for crocheted stripes has just been reaffirmed..............check it out
