Joining Ginny again for this weeks Yarn Along…
Well… the books are more or less the same, to be honest I’m not getting too much reading in at the moment
(apart from when I lock the door of the bathroom that is, and that in itself is rare; what is even more rare is that I wouldn’t have at least one little one in chatting with me )
and I completely forgot to photograph any reading material for this post
(I blame being pregnant and slightly completely twitty)
so you will have to refer to last week for that photograph I’m afraid; but
The Secret Life of the Unborn Child
Freeform Crochet and Beyond
Homeopathy for Home and Garden
are all still very much on my radar, and I am “reading” them every day.
But I DID photograph the progress of my crochet (whew!):
Remember I had my plan and freeform crochet pieces? Well, they have progressed quite a bit in the past 2 days with some Irish lace crochet attaching them together.
It still all looks very all-over-the place, but even with a bit more lace work tonight it is beginning to take shape.
I’m hoping to be more or less “done” by the weekend! Gosh, I’m really enjoying this!!
I was *featured* on my sisters blog this weekend: I opened it up to see what they were up to, out there in foreign lands, or to see who had clobbered themselves
(they are prone to accidents/fainting/illness/international disasters)
but mostly to see the progress of her beautiful crochet;
for someone so who couldn’t follow a pattern if it was a life or death situation (me); my sister, the Ginger one, not only reads and follows, but actually writes them! And sells them too!!
For each of my babies, and for any babies even slightly known to us or our family when we were growing up, have received a crochet blanket. Ginger, would produce a blanket, that was not only properly rectangular, but uniform in size, pattern and yarn choice.
Mine was, well… experimental.
So it is no surprise that I am crocheting with relish at the moment these freeform crochet patches.
I did stay with the three colours after all, and will probably interlink the lot with Irish-lace-like crochet, I think in black. I want the black crochet web in between to be looser, so it doesn’t get too dense and stiff.
This is my plan:
I’m hoping to start on the black yarn tonight for when I collapse onto the sofa and babies are in bed, pot of tea beside me…
I’m easily pleased!!
