It’s been three weeks since my first Wednesday WIP post, and it’s been a productive three weeks. I finished the shawl I was working on, I made a quilt, I’ve been making hexipuffs in spare moments (current tally is 160), and I’ve started a new crochet project.
I didn’t intend to start anything new, it’s all Sally’s fault. I was having a read of her blog (I’m playing catch up with all the blogs I follow, and it’s a losing battle so far!) and saw her first crochet project. It’s so pretty, and I love the way her version looks like stars because the tips of her petals have gone a little pointy. I had a peek in my stash and found the Noro I bought at Stitch & Craft in February, and thought that might look nice made up into the Cassia so I made a start… and then realised that there was no way I had enough yarn in that colourway to finish it. To compound my frustration my flowers have come out around 2 inches wide, and the pattern says they should be 3.5inches across. Hmmm. So I’ve already had to make the first row longer so that it’ll actually fit around my neck.
The colours are lovely, but of course I’ve had to order some more of that yarn (three balls…) so I can finish the cowl. Most expensive spur-of-the-moment project ever?
