Is coming along slowly. I finished making the squares a while ago, I guess it must be a few weeks now at least. And since then, things have pretty much grinded to a halt. My excuse? The weather. The mentalissimo weather we've had until this week, the heat, the stickiness, the grubbiness. And the last thing I wanted to do on my commute home in that hot air-less train was to get my crochet out. That wool, man it's hot. You may be wondering what I was doing on my commute into work? Hmmm... resting my eyes! The heat, I tell you, it knocks me out!! So at the moment, I'm working my way through these neatly organised little piles, sewing the ends in... There's a lot of ends to sew, that's for sure... so it's taking me some time.
Organised little piles? What's that all about hey? No, I promise, I haven't suddenly developed an OCD, they're just organised in rows you see. I had the squares all laid out on our bed and spent about 30min arranging them, and re-arranging them, and re-arranging them again. And when I was happy with the layout, I took a snappy snap of it all (I'm afraid that one is for my eyes only, you really don't want to see the result of me standing on tip toes, arms as high as I can reach, trying to photograph something - hey I know, I could have reached for a chair, but I was waayyyyy too lazy for that!). After that, they got piled up in rows, ready for the neating up process to commence.
Next step? Blocking all these little buggers. But this might have to wait. All this crochet malarkey has made me forget one now-super-urgent project: this little fellow. Because this needs to be ready in... 3 1/2 weeks. Better get cracking then!
