2018/19 The big project thing, Crochet, Family

Weeks 16,17,18,19 and 20. Oh dear!

Ok, so the best laid plans and all that jazz.

I had every intention of posting every week. This felt like a perfectly achievable plan and would inspire and motivate me in other areas of my life. The reality is, I have just eaten half a packet of malted milk biscuits and am trying to get motivated enough to decide what to cook for dinner, lol 😉

So, in my defence, this summer has been very, very long and not exactly lending itself to making things out of yarn or hot ovens. In the last week, I have managed to pull a little crochet and cleaning mojo out of the bag.

Crochet books and magazines have all been neatly stacked, crochet hooks sorted and two projects started. The Cosmic Cal by Helen Shrimpton and a simple linen stitch baby blanket, aimed at using up my 3 balls of Stylecraft Special DK Mushroom. This yarn has sat in my stash for the best part of a year now. I keep picking it up starting something and then feeling that it’s not quite right. It is a lovely colour but can’t quite make up my mind if it goes well with anything other than itself. The Cosmic Cal is also being made in my leftover Stylecraft Special DK yarn. I am trying very very hard not to buy more yarn until this is well on the way to being gone.

Looking for pictures to post to go with this post as couldn’t find the energy to go downstairs and take pictures of my projects so far (so very lazy today!)

Found these and was reminded about how cute I once was and that I was a pretty good florist once upon a time (not done flowers in a very, very long time)

Looking forward to getting grip going forward!

Enjoy,

Lx
