Hello! I hope you all had a nice weekend. We even had some sunshine in the village, on Sunday. K and I had plans, as we were planning to visit the Emigration fair, we had free tickets. Well, we did not go, as my lip was all swollen thanks to cold sores. I had three (three!!) painful blisters on my upper lip and I looked absolutely ridiculous. I think I would have scared people so we stayed at home. You see the picture? Little children look at me and then start to cry and scream for their mother? Something like that.
And so, with a sore mouth I continued to work on my big granny square blanket, which is an absolute joy to work on. After every row I turn the square and the square has still very straight edges, not wonky at all. I added two extra colours and I am now using seven shades of blue, plus beige, white and tweed beige.It’s growing rapidly -it now has the size of a cushion cover- and how much fun it is to make something that is finished so fast. But my next project is going to be another blanket, a project that needs more time. Another ripple, I think, or a second V-stitch blanket, in rustic colours. Noooo, S T O P right here! Must finish the current WiP’s first, befóre
I can start I am allowed to start something new. Oookaay, that hurts …. But I must be firm. Very firm indeed. It’s hard though, as I really, really, really want to start playing with my new and lovely birthday yarn. Sometimes, when I pass that box, I do believe I can hear these balls of yarn whisper … please, get us out of here, make something with us, we are so unhappy over here locked up in this box …
I kid you not.
