I’ve got to finish darning my motif blanket (it’s going well and best described as: slow but steady) and crochet lots more stripes. So, I’m still determinedly not going to start knitting anything, or begin any new project, until they’re finished.
I can still buy the occasional treats though. A gorgeous pottery coaster and a skein of the most deliciously soft yarn which is 97% baby alpaca, (see the silver sparkles in it?) along with a little pattern for wristies with a mock cable pattern.
It would be foolish to begin a new make, when I’ve really got to finish the overdue motif blanket which is for someone else. Equal pleasure can surely be gained from darning and half watching a Pirates of the Caribbean film can’t it?
Bright stripes are good for the day after the night before, when one by one leaders are resigning and pundits are still reeling from false predictions.
What are you definitely not doing?
Anything, stayed up too late last night, watching the results! Looking good, those stripes!
Me too – I couldn’t go to bed until local results came in! It was nearly dawn before my eyes closed.
Thank you Cathy.
Love the colors you are using!
Thanks very much!
What results? Who is resigning!? I need details! Hugs, Teresa
Oh my goodness Teresa! Watch or read the BBC News…..UK election was this week.
The satisfaction of completing that blanket will be staggering :-). Looking forward to the pics.
Won’t it just!
I enjoyed knitting with alpaca. Must do it again one day.
Gorgeous feel on the hands as you use it.
Bright, happy colors
Neat, even crochet stitches
Amazing! Never had a haiku written for me or my blog before. Thank you.
I’M definitely not casting on a shawl instead of finishing a crochet toy for a pal. You’re almost there with the blanket! Love the mock cables, can never resist a Louisa Harding yarn.
Ha ha! Glad I’m not the only one.
I’ve only ever used one ball of Louisa Harding before, that was one I was asked to review. It’s lovely quality yarn isn’t it?
I’m definitely not casting on another pair of socks using a skein of gorgeous Rowan yarn bought from John Lewis. I think we are all reeling form the result of the election – so unexpected!!
Staggering when not even the pundits and DC didn’t expect the result!
Glad you’re also NOT doing something!
