Doing it my way

Here I go again. Well it wouldn't be me if I actually followed a pattern as written would it? As usual I am crocheting the sleeves of the Pink Duster Coat by Doris Chan before I crochet the body. I don't like having to turn the weight of the completed body whilst crocheting the sleeves and prefer to make them whilst the garment is lighter. When I read the pattern it is supposed to have bell shaped sleeves. I am a clumsy person and if my sleeves are too large then I tend to "dust" everything in sight from tables and shelves not to mention getting hooked up on every doorknob and protruding object that is in my path. I have, therefore, decided not to increase the sleeves and keep my sleeves straight. I will be less of a danger to the general public (and myself) that way.

I haven't made as much progress as I would have liked due to nodding off in front of the TV last night. I can't remember what I was supposed to be watching but it can't have been that riveting.

Tomorrow I am looking after my neighbour Julie's dog Buddy for an hour or so and will take his photo so there will be some nice doggy photos for tomorrow's blog.

LOL.."dust" everything in sight. At least you could cut your housework down a bit on the days you wear it Jan.
I didn't even have the tv on last night and I still fell asleep with my knitting in my lap! Then again, it was after 1 am so it wasn't that the pattern I'm working on is boring. In my case, probably just too lazy to get up and put myself in the bed at a decent hour.
Hope your cough is winding down Jan!!
