Being Indulgent !!
So Friday afternoon I started working on my youngests Dinosaur inspired blanket . I had taken it to crochet on Monday night to get their oppinion on an idea I had so I thought I would sit down and give it a go . What I was trying to do was essentially save myself some money by thriftfully using my small amounts of wool up instead of going out and buying more wool . So we'd come up with the idea of doing small Granny's all the way around the last round .
Oh boy was this a mistake , I knew as soon as I had done six small grannys and attatched them that it just wasn't working , the rythm of the blanket was broken . So I gave myself a good talking to and told myself to stop being tight and put my hand in my pocket and buy some wool . So Saturday afternoon I had a little splurge which felt good and bought some more wool . Once home I pulled off the little Grannys and set too !!
I was so happy that I had decided not to compromise the deign of the blanket for saving a few pounds !! Lesson learn't. I am really enjoying the rythmic nature of this Large Granny blanket , the theraputic gentle motion of going around and around and around .I am also loving the colours , I've been looking at my sons Dinosaurs and I need to tr and fit in some purples and yellows and black . So I guess I need to buy more wool , Oh well when neeeds must .
Another little treat I gave myself was a new crochet hook , I'm finding the ones I have get quite slippy particularly when I biuld up a bit of speed !! , so I was persuaded to try this one .
So having been indulgent with both my time and my money I've found I'm quite energized and ready for the week ahead . I have lots of plans for this week and the main one is to get on with producing my next batch of Hares . So after our evening meal I comondiered the dinning table and set everthing up , so when I return from the school run in the mornig I can set too ( until I have to go to work !!) . I will also get a couple of hours in the afternoon to work on them too . So With some serious time management this week I'm hoping to make big leaps in the production of the Hares .
So I'm just hoping my creative mojo is back to stay for a while as it's been missing for a few weeks . I'm enjoying feeling this amount of enrgy fizzing inside of me !! I hope you all enjoy the week ahead of you and thanks for popping by and ta ta for now . x
