Hello! I hope you all had a good weekend? The weather here has been so crazy today, blustery winds with rain, then sun, then rain again, then hailstones, just to mix it up a bit. Lights have been switched on and off so many times it looks like I'm sending out a code.
It's been a quiet weekend and yet I don't seem to have achieved a lot, beyond dog walking, feeding people, going to the tip, the library and buying Angus some new school shoes. Ok, maybe I have done something. Evenings have been spent in a frenzy of darning in of ends because - and I can barely believe it - Angus's blanket is very nearly finished. The main bulk of the crochet is done and now I am dealing with those ends before starting the border. I am on the home stretch.
There is no denying that there is a lot of yarn to sew in there, but I'm just getting on with it and trying not to mind too much. It's quite therapeutic in a funny way.
I had hoped to finish this project by the end of February, but no matter. I made great progress over half term, during those long journeys to Durham and back and while staying with my in-laws, and I really picked up speed and enthusiasm once I could see that the end was in sight.
I was feeling a bit glum about this blanket - I still feel that the colours are not quite right but can't put my finger on it - until I draped it over Angus's unmade bed, just to get a feel for how it might look. Then I changed my mind and liked it a whole lot more.
So, I reckon there's maybe another week or two of work in that blanket, depending on how much time I can devote to it in the evenings, and then it will be finished.
