Have you heard the song Havana by Camila Cabello? No? Well I will be kind and not share the link to it. It’s a good song but a total ear worm and with me crocheting so much of Havana this week it has been in my head a lot. (That or the song Zoom by Fat Larry’s Band, thanks to all the zoom meetings recently.)
I have part 6 to finish and then part 7 and then I will see how much yarn is left. I’m thinking I will likely not have enough for a border so will either leave a fringe or weave in ends. I have been doing 2 pattern repeats for each section except for the 4th which I did one, as my sums were telling me I didn’t have enough for 2 repeats of all 7.
I have had an idea to dye some self striping socks! If I knit the start of a sock with an undyed skein I should be able to estimate how much needs to be dyed in each colour. This could be a disaster but we shall see next week.
I have been working on another batch of fairies including some Halloween fairies as gifts and shop.
Well I am having real issues remembering to take my Vitamin B12 supplements which are to help my memory!!! You couldn’t make it up. This week my memory has really been hopeless, but there is a lot going on with the AGMs for the Guild and Camera Club and getting ready for new seasons via Zoom. I’m hoping once the paperwork side of life subsides for a bit that will help.
I posted earlier this week a Q&A about colour, a post about me organising my craft room into zones and another Garden Diary post! A busy week for the blog.
My car, which has been on our drive with a dead battery for months, was jump started and dropped off for repairs, servicing and MOT. It has required full new brakes, battery and some other bits and the bill was £1,040!!!! I need to make a decision about whether to sell the car or keep it. We’ve managed fine without using mine for 6 months but then after lockdown maybe I will miss having it if I sold it. Hmmm in the meantime weekly trips with Ylva to the beach will happen from next week and that should help the new battery.
Just before I go, on Saturday I started to turn our 5 small conifers into minions!
This is a Year of Projects post. Officially the Group is in its 10th year, but this is my 3rd year participating. If you would like to find more about the Year of Projects Group on Ravelry.
