Ok so I may be unwell and in a slight limbo while I decide which route to take to, hopefully, better health...but being stuck at home with a few child-free hours a day has its advantages.
Like having the time to make some of my favourite lemon cookies...
And of course having the time to eat them :)
I've also had a bit of sofa time to complete my "background" crochet project, the one I keep for when I'm between "proper" projects, like now whilst I am waiting for a stock of yarn to come in to finish my Li'l Monkey blanket.
This bag came about for two reasons - firstly as I needed a yarn bag, and secondly because I need to use up my stash of acrylic wool to free up space before the baby arrives.
This was made up as I went along - a continuous round of double crochet, handles worked in single crochet (I'm talking US terms here) and then edged with some bobbly picot edging.
I'm rather pleased with the edging as I had to apply a little of my crochet experience to figure out the best way to space it out and how to do this. It's the perfect size for all my yarn...
Now I just need to work out what my next project should be! Better head off to Ravelry for more baby hat patterns I think :)
