I don't know about where you are but we have had some crazy wet weather for a few weeks now. Weird stormy weather often just little thunder & lightning, but lots & lots of rain... & I mean lots. The water is receding I think finally, all around town. It wasn't flooded here but it was wet. Sodden. To be expected. It's going to be strange to see the paddocks & ditches not full of water!
As a result of the indoor days, I have been knitting up a storm too! So much so that I had to have a little break in between. I was over doing it on my shoulders of course. So make myself feel ill & need of massage the knots out. Also I had poked a bunch of holes in my finger with the knitting needles. Yeah tragic I know. But gee, it just wasn't going away cos I just kept stabbing myself in the same spot over & over again. Keeps you awake anyway! :-)
I did get a bit of crochet done for a change. I had got well behind in the CAL squares recently. I did one square in my new colours & really wasn't loving it. So I was reluctant to do more. But I just decided one day to just get on with it as some of the CAL girls really liked the colours. So I did another.
Manny Anne's Square - not my favourite & a lot of fussy pattern writing for little effect as far as I was concerned.
Harriett's Square - I liked this one - well the centre anyhow. It was after the grey edge that I realised that is was the light green that I didn't like. But since I had a few done with green already I thought I had better keep it going.
Squaring the Big Circle - OK.
Simple 10 petal square - like this one. I did get a bit befuddled over reading the pattern for the bit on top of the centre (the grey bit!). I was over thinking again. If that is at all possible for me to do!
Shells & Waves - Nah, didn't fancy this at all. Too fussy a pattern again for what it is.
Ok, so I have a hand full done now. Will do a few more. It doesn't need to be a big blanket. I am hoping the black edges & joining will make a difference to it. But the point of the CAL is to do some that others suggest & often it is what you wouldn't pick to do yourself so it is nice to try out some other stuff. I have enjoyed it all the same.
Currently sidetracked on to a little stash busting on small stuff which is good fun too.
