Our new square was picked for the week. It's the Nordic Star. Quite nice, though mine isn't. Not so happy with it. There are mistakes. I couldn't work out a couple of the outer rounds after the star. Oh well, it isn't so obvious I don't think. I'm not terribly bothered by it right now. Slack attitude I know, but there you go.
Then I have also used some more precious stash of Lily's Sugar 'n' Cream yarn, Lava Lamp. I must say I like the other one better from last week. This one is a basketweave pattern that I got out of a pattern book I have from Lily's. (also available on Ravelry of course!) It's huge! Really much bigger than the cloth last week. I think it must have used more than three quarters of the ball. I do have another ball of this one as it turns out so that's good. I should get 2 more out of that some time. Or play around with some colours to use the ends up.
I'm working on a bigger project in cross stitch at the moment too, so that is a bit trickier to manage with the boys, but I will try to find blocks of time for that. It takes a bit more concentration that the crochet or knitty stuff does which is why I don't do a lot of it these days.
After the weekend surprise of Chris turning up, we had a Monday surprise of him having to leave today already! So I guess in a couple of weeks my hotel pen collection will grow a little more again!
Till another day!
