I’ve had one of those weeks filled with good intentions to craft, but I’m getting nowhere fast. I have made a little progress though, so all is not lost.
The sock I started last week now has all of the ribbing completed plus 3 or 4 pattern repeats on the leg. I’ve taken the sock everywhere, including a birthday party. I ended up playing on the big slides with the kids instead of knitting, but it was fun! I also took it in the car with me to visit friends, though I didn’t actually take it out of the bag. Some weeks I am so good at squeezing in a little bit of knitting or crochet between jobs and others it just doesn’t happen.
The cosy stripe blanket is more about work and less about progress this week-I completed 5 stripes and then realised that I’d added in a cluster of stitches by accident so I had to frog it back to the point at which I finished last week. The only thing I’ve achieved is winding myself up 5 little balls of yarn. At least the reworked rows won’t take as long as there will be less stitches in them! I was a little bit gutted, but not to worry.
This week is looking very busy as it is my daughter’s 4th birthday on Sunday and she has requested a chocolate cake in the shape of a chicken. Something tells me that is easier said than done… The children are also off school/pre-school for Easter now so I don’t know how much crafting I’ll get done. I will just remind myself it’s a marathon and not a sprint.
What are you working on this week? I hope you’ve been more successful than me!
