During my first "proper" week of maternity leave now that no.1 is back at school I have spent some quality time crocheting on the sofa. Not as much time as I would like so far, due the ongoing nesting operation, but a fair amount of time :)
The Colour Bar blanket is coming along very nicely, despite me mucking it up considerably on the first assembly. I used a 4mm hook when I should have used a 6mm and ended up with a very crinkly blanket that just wouldn't sit right at all.
It took me ages to work out what I had done and you can imagine the reaction of an eight-month pregnant woman with heartburn when I realised I had to rip it apart and start again. However the end is now in sight and I am pleased to report that a 6mm hook and a lot of patience has indeed solved the issue.
So excuse me whilst I sit here and hook away, it's easier than getting up. If only someone would bring me a cup of raspberry leaf tea my afternoon would be complete...
