Slow Progress

Lots of things happening outside my crafty endeavours at the much going on, that doing anything that rquires too much pattern reading or charts has had to be put aside for the time being.  At least until the end of May, then things will hopefully pick up again.

In the meantime, I have been working through the stash of left over sock wool and working on my 2 blankets.  These are now almost too big to take on the train and bus (well I could, but they won't fit into my handbag anymore, so they need a bag of their own now.  Still they grow, and I am amazed at home big these blankets are getting, even though lots of this wool is left over from previous projects.

We have been watching the series of Underbelly 2, and now we are watching a BBC series called Hustle, which requires a lot of actual watching of the TV, otherwise you miss out on the fine details of the scam. It's a great show to watch in the evenings when the kids have gone to bed.  The blankets are slowly increasing, although they are taking longer to do each row.
