I really haven’t done much knitting or crocheting this week but here’s what I have done.
Not quite another little aran baby cardigan and yes this one has has a boo boo in the cabling but you know what I did… I’m ashamed to say that I did repeated the boo boo so that it looked like the design rather than undo the front.
This is the start of a pram/cot (crib) blanket. It’s supposed to be knit on double pointed needles (dpns) but as I’m sure I’ve said before I don’t really do them. I think it’s because I’m a tucker ie, I tuck my working needle under my right arm. I’ve tried long dpns that can be tucked but it’s still too slow, I just can’t get a rhythm going and the thought of starting with 120 stitches but finishing with about ten split between three needles – urghhhh! So I decided to adapt it so I could use two. The first one worked fine but I went wrong with the second darker blue one and had to undo it. Well I say undo I’d sewn it up so neatly the end was well hidden so I took a pair of scissors to it!
And that’s been it other than a few rows of crochet and I still have these few balls to knit/crochet up…
along with a ball of red and green waiting at my local yarn shop! Better get my finger out.
I have had a thought which might help enthusiasm matters – I generally feel better later in the day from early evening so I thought I’d try and take my Thalidomide earlier tonight (I went with 8 pm) and see if that made a difference to when I perked up tomorrow. It’s worth a go.
