As promised, because deep down I think you like the crafty posts the best. On my craft table at the moment there are three projects (I've hidden all the others, out of sight, out of mind ... it doesn't take much!!) so I can give these my focussed attention, and there has been a little bit of progress on each of them. Not much, but a bit!
Firstly, here is a sneak peak at this month's project that I'd aiming to finish. I don't want to give too much away, not just yet, but it's hand stitching which I love to do. It's nice to be able to transport a project easily and sit quietly wherever you are, adding to it, tiny stitch by tiny stitch.
A bit of progress on hubby's scarf. Hard to get too excited about this as we're into Spring and it's getting warmer every day. I know it won't get used until next Winter now, so that's probably when it will get finished, hopefully just prior to the cold weather setting in.
And the reason the knitting is not progressing speedily is that I've been weilding the crochet hook. Again two steps forward, one step back, and that's because I leap ahead thinking I know what I'm doing only to find that I actually don't. It was starting to get that unwanted wavy look again. Of course, I kept going because I thought it would all be okay, but then I thought I should do a stitch count (what a good idea, Trudy!) and found I had so many more stitches than I should have ... yikes!! I then see my problem back four rows (oh yes, I'm always slow to pick up a mistake!!) Instead of crocheting two stitches together, I did two stitches ... bloomin' well side by side. What a ninny!!!!!
Anyway, I'm back on track with it and stop myself every time I daydream about this project becoming a scarf rather than a blanket. But it would make a very snuggly scarf, don't you think? And right now it's the perfect width. Better get going on the next rows before I start wrapping it around my neck and heading out the door!
Rather like the look of a re-wound ball of wool. Good really, because I'm seeing a few of those at the moment!
Seeya tomorrow in Blogtoberfest-land!
Enjoy your day, Trudy
