Crochet is definitely not for the faint hearted...........in my house it is fast-paced and at the moment a little stressful!
So as you may recall, my temporary one-a-day, is a flower scarf for my mother-in-law who is about to hop on a plane and will be away for Christmas. So I have today to finish and then it will be wrapped to give to her tomorrow!
I'm out tonight.......... and although I am good at multi-tasking........ playing the whistle and crocheting at the same time is not I would say........ my strong point. In my favour, the boys' schools are striking tomorrow, so I could work until late tonight as I don't have an early start tomorrow.
This week I have done 16 flowers.
It's not so much the flower making that takes the time, but all the crocheting together and sewing ends. I have made good progress and at this stage have to say a massive thank you again, to Marie, Underground Crafter who suggested how to join. I feel it is working out well.
As is often my moan, the light is dreadful here today making the colours seem a lot brighter than the more muted colours I have actually used.
Those who chipped in their recommendations with the shape I should go for, will realise that the vast majority said triangular shaped shawl, so I duly went with the long scarf! I did start with a triangle, but decided that a long scarf may get more use, even if placed over the end of a bed etc...
I only have three small flowers to do, and then it is the
boring rewarding task of sewing and seeing the scarf come together. When it is finished (early hours of tomorrow morning?) I will try and lay it out flat, so you can see how I've placed the motifs.
Anyhoo........thank you for the continuing support and lovely comments....even if I do blatantly ignore all your helpful advice! Looking forward to seeing how you are all getting along too. If you would like to see more One-a-day work, do check out gingerbreadgirl's blog.
