Blue Curacao Shawl
Everytime that I use the Blue Curacao Shawl pattern by Doris Chan from tne Amazing Lace Book I promise myself that one day I will make one for myself. This version has been changed to add two more rows of pineapples as the wool was finer than the wool specified for the pattern. I used 6 x 40 grams of Patons Promise Brushed DK for this version, It is now in the post and I hope that Debra will get it on Monday or Tuesday.
I got a Tesco online food order today. I always seem to spend far more money when I shop online than I do when I visit the store so I hope to be out and about and doing my own shopping very soon.
I have spend a bit of today tidying up the plastic set of drawers that I keep my WIP in. Today I was ruthless and took back and rewound a couple of WIP that I just know that I will never finish. I decided to unravel the Tunisian crochet as it was working out rather thick in my sample so would have made a rather rigid baby cardigan. I have found the long jacket that I was part way through making before I went into hospital and found the rest of the wool so I am poised to crochet some more on that after dinner.
I have been feeling rather tired today so I doubt that much crochet will get done today. Oscar, next door's cat has been asleep on the spare bed for most of the day but has now decided to go home. He had his breakfast at my house and when I made no moves to feed him again he decided to go home! Hopefully I will get some crochet done tonight although unless there is something on the TV to grab my interest I will probably have a doze in the recliner. I hope that I don't do that as then I won't sleep all night through.
My dinner is pinging. My menu consists of very easy or ready to eat meals as I just don't feel like chopping and cooking at the moment. Another thing that will hopefully come back soon. It takes me all of my time to cook a bit of bacon for a breakfast sandwich. Today I just had a piece of toast. I would have stayed in bed for a little while longer but I knew that my niece was calling early as was Tesco Direct so no chance of that happening.
