We're going to Algiers in a couple of days in sha Allah! And we'll be away for about six weeks. Yes, SIX WEEKS!!! Plenty of time to slot in a bit of hook-action? But guess what, Hexalicious Blanket isn't coming with us!
I will miss her but some time apart should do us good! And daughter no.2 is taking her Hex Backpack which will ensure we get some eye-candy of the hexagon variety.
In the meantime we might get on with some other, more easily transportable crochet delights (projects that are gathering dust in a bag somewhere!) and I really must finish this shawl.
Initially, I was unsure about the colour. But as the shawl grew the colour grew on me! The white flecks break the lime up a bit. It's a bit of a chumky one too. I can imagine it keep someone snug and warm on a cold, winter's evening.
While I've been packing for our trip, I've been clearing out, cleaning up and organising. During my efforts, I came across a few things under piles of other things or stuck behind other things at the backs of drawers and cupboards!
Here is one of those things:
Made by Me, aged 8 or 9! It's a bit tatty and discoloured. But it's given me craft ideas for the kids!
I also came across an old sketch book with quite a few unfinished projects.
I might have to take the sketch book along with me too!
