Thank goodness my busy week is over-I survived working an extra day and the disco/fundraiser was a huge success. Things are back to normal this week (apart from an incoming tide of birthday party invites for both children!) and so I’m hoping to get more crafting done. I did manage a few craft sessions this week in between jobs, so it wasn’t too bad.
First of all I’ll talk about the Attic 24 Cosy Stripe blanket. As it grows, it gets heavier, and so it puts a strain on my wrist. Because I can’t work on it for extended periods, I’ve decided to crochet a stripe or two a night before working in other things. Each stripe adds an inch to the length of the blanket (and 15g) so it grows pretty quickly. It’s meant to be a stash buster so I will keep working on it until it is either the length of a single bed or I run out of yarn. I’ve added a stitch marker to show where I started from when I brought it out of hibernation so that I can see I’ve made progress.
I’m also working on my Hermione’s Everyday socks, and this photo is actually the start of sock 2. (Thank you to the weather for ensuring football was cancelled on Saturday morning, giving me extra craft time!) Fingers crossed sock 2 will work up more quickly as it won’t be in the naughty corner for a fortnight whilst I decide whether I like the pattern or not.
I’ve also been working away on some cards, which I’ll share when I’ve completed them all.
What are you working on at the moment? Are you beginning to work on more spring projects or has the weather this week (for the UK folks!) left you still feeling wintery? Let me know!
