Do you know how I can tell? Its not the daffodils, forsythia, or blossom on the trees. This is how I know…
There are/were some fish in there too somewhere under to greenery. They haven’t been seen since we put them in. They were supposed to eat the green floaty stuff but I think its a bit too much for them.
Seeing as it was such a sunny day I decided to make the most of the light and take my photos for you in the garden. So here you go… Babette style blanket update….
This is two strips of squares joined together. Plenty more to go. Actually you can see the join quite clearly on this photo now I’ve looked closely at it! The lovely thing is that it won’t fit in the bag I’ve been using for it so easily now, so its been lying on the sofa and the boys have already been using it for snuggling. Especially Little J who it fits best right now.
The not so good thing is that I have been having a bit of elbow pain which, I am very reluctantly admitting, might be down to crochet. Its only in my hook arm 😦 The block for the blanket is very treblicious and I think it might be the repetitive twisting movement that is doing it. I’ve had a couple of nights off from blanketing (still HAD to crochet though so I did small cottony things with my lovely new yarn – watch this space for news) and my elbow is almost painless again. So am thinking (very reluctantly) that I might have to slow down with it a bit 😦 And maybe start taking cod liver oil!!! Anyone else got any crochet injuries???
Hope you all have a wonderful and relaxing weekend. Its looking like its going to be a sunny warm one here – hope yours is too. Enjoy.
