Life is feeling more even now. I’ve done another 8 round square for baby Babette, and will do a handful of 4-round squares this week to finish the current section. I am about 3 rounds from starting the toe on the second sock, so am confident that next week’s post will finally have a finished object to show off! Crochet has been harder than knitting this week, as my favourite scissors have disappeared (I forgot which safe place I put them in), and having interrupted Small Girl’s determined attempts to cut her hair with the plastic kiddy scissors, I’ve been sticking to the project that doesn’t require scissors close at hand for colour changes.
Is anyone else starting to think about next year’s Year of Projects? There are some gorgeous patterns and projects popping up on my Friends’ Activities and I think I’ll have baby Babette, these socks, and another small project finished by the end of the current project year.
In other news, I’ve cycled 70miles so far in May, and the weather forecast leads me to hope that I might just be able to reach 100 by the end of the month. That would be a great achievement for me. Good luck to everyone reading who’s been out on their bikes too, it’s hard getting going but it feels so darned satisfying to watch the miles clocking up. Almost as satisfying as approaching the end of my first pair of socks, in fact!
