Another Present Finished
Another present finished. This is my version of the Capricious Cardi by Marlaina Bird that was in the Inside crochet Issue 5. I couldn't get it to work out at all with the Jarol double knit that I had bought and so just made my own design up. It looks almost the same as the one in the magazine except that my version is a little shorter due to my not buying quite enough yarn. I bought 500 grams but as the wool has a high wool content I could have done with buying 600 grams.
I still haven't found the missing crochet hook but I am hoping that it turns up when I move the furniture to do a proper hoover up before Christmas. It must have rolled underneath a sofa or something.
The snow is still coming down thick and fast here and I am worrying about getting out to pick up my prescription and do some food shopping. If I don't get a lift then I will have to brave the snow and walk up tomorrow.
I must get on with some more crochet and knitting as I have no time to sit and do nothing, Mother Christmas is on overtime this year!
ETA After writing this blog I went into the front room and my missing crochet hook was in the middle of the coffee table ! Now that was definitely the first place that I looked for it. How can a hook sit on a glass coffee table for 2 days and not be seen? I tell you I have a mischievous fairy or elf living in my house somewhere.
