7 sections to this blanket, 7 are finished. 44 squares made and joined into these sections. There are now about 70 ends remaining to weave in, which I think I can do this evening before joining sections 6 and 7 to the main body. Learn from my slothfulness – do ends as you go! Most of those ends are from one single section too Anyway, tomorrow I’ll be able to start the border, which shouldn’t take too long. This is such a difficult set of colours to photograph, and none of these pictures really do the blanket justice. I’ll get a photo outdoors in the sun before sending it off to my friend.
The sock has not yet moved from its naughty corner on the mantelpiece. I will take it to JJ for rescue, but that might not be til the school holidays finish. Luckily, I have spare sock yarn and I can always buy a fresh set of needles to start a fresh pair. I also picked up some yarn this week with the intent of breaking whatever hex is on starting the Felicity hat. Except of course I bought dk, and the hat needs either fingering or worsted. I think I might get by with dk and an increased needle size, as I did with the last one.
Domestically, this week was something of a mixed bag. Small Girl’s tummy bug had a 3 day reprise and the Mister has just gone to Vegas for a week. The last day of nursery is tomorrow, though we will be making use of their summer club for a couple of mornings a week. By “a couple” I mean “3”, most likely. I sold my first adult bike on ebay and now have a glorious bargain steel-framed mixte that is perfect for nipping into town and that makes me smile every time I ride it. There’s a new leather saddle coming too. We’ve bought Small Girl’s first ever school uniform, and the sun is shining for the first time all summer (really). So I suppose I can’t really grumble about a few ends.
