My hubby said 'So is this going to be well organised so you can get it all done, or are you going to have some sort of crochet meltdown, where everything else is neglected (think housework, cooking, running kids to school)?'
I'm going for being well organised AND having a crochet meltdown!
This week, I have gone off list kinda, when someone expecting their third child, had their baby four weeks early. Baby and Mum are both home now, but I guess it will take some time to settle when they weren't quite expecting him yet!
Anyway, as previously mentioned, I was looking at all the limp, straggledy bits left from my first Lucy pack, which were not enough to make a whole stripe (and having not even tackled the ends on the colour changes yet, I didn't want to add any more in the mix). So from a big tangledy-mess, I made this..........
This was 'fly by the seat of my pants' crochet, and I think it paid off. I passed the pressie on to the Grandmother after really only spending one evening and a morning on it, so it was super quick (although, I should add it is a small blanket)
I've been wanting to have a go at a ripple for a while, so it has got it out of my system, although I think next time I may try a different yarn to the stylecraft, but I'm guessing that acrylic is a good way to go when it comes to baby things that will be hurled in the machine regularly.
Added to my YOP list are..........
1. Sunnyspread throw (which is my current one-a-day piece)
2. Hot water bottle cover (I am not grabbed by any of the patterns I've seen on Ravelry so far, so I may make it up)
3. Moogly's Blackberry Salad Striped baby blanket (I should have until just after Christmas to complete this)
4. Caity Cat from the super clever The Green Dragonfly
5. Owl Bag
This is definitely not where the list ends..........just where it all begins!
I bought this on a complete whim yesterday as I loved the colours and feel.
...................Any inspired ideas what I could make with it?
(It is Rico Creative Micro DK, 100g 100% micro-fibre (which I'm not sure I even understand what that is?))
Thankyou as ever for all the advice and encouragement. I'm looking forward after our Sunday roast chatting with a very excited eight-year old about his first cub camp, to looking at all your lovely blogs
