Rachel was being assisted in her granny squares and we discovered a typing error in the Cath Kidston kit granny square pattern. And Gracia was initiated into the half treble and working on either side of a chain to make baby bootees.
The lunch-hour session flew by and we didn't want to put it down and stop, a bit addictive maybe. But only in a good way that anything pleasurable is a little addictive.
The rest of my day was less pleasurable except for the glowing reports at Parents' evening for History and Biology for Miss E. Transition and it's issues and problems is beginning to affect my motivation and I need to get out and about as being in the office every week is getting me down.
Then the girls had a blazing row and all I could think of is: GIVE me my crochet and let me regain some peace and pleasure in the day. So that's what I did, after buying the dogs some food and walking them. And letting them lick walls and doors where thrown yoghurt ( teen wars) had made a mess.
So by MIDNIGHT: the other 12-12-12-12 I was very HAPPY again: I had caught up with Last Tango in Halifax ( LOVE IT!) and was watching THE HOUR on i-player.
And I was CROCHETING!
THIS is what I'm making: JJ's Christmas present: a jumper to keep him warm in the unit ( and elsewhere I hope).
You can see the subtle striping best on the sleeve on the right. The paler navy is the trebles and the darker one the half treble rows.
I finished the yoke at 1:20 am on Tuesday 11th - yes a bit addictive I think we've covered that. Then on the evning of 11st and 12th I worked the cable band: I have never done this type of cable before and did have to frog part of the second row as I wasn't turning on each row. It was very exciting watching the cable woven design develop.
20:12 on 20th December 2012 : 20.12,20/12, 2012!!!
That will be next Thursday when hopefully I'll be dancing at Lucy Clark as it starts at 8 pm. I hope to mark the moment somehow?
