Well as usual, blogger won't load photos in the order I request them and to be honest I can't be arsed to start a fight trying to rearrange them - blogger, YOU WIN!
So, my spaced out brain has almost come back to earth, almost. If you may recall some time WAY back I bought this lovely yarn. I made thousands of squares, loving the colours and the super soft texture of the yarn. Ok well, not thousands, but ALOT. Then I laid them all out, as you do, to figure out a pattern. It struck me that I would now have to sew them all together!!! And we all know, I'm way too impatient for that to happen.
So I started over. Well, I didn't frog all the squares, but one by one I've started unravelling them and joining them together as I go.
It took quite a few more attempts than I am willing to admit to figure out exactly how to join each strip together, but I THINK I have it.
The biggest challenge thus far is being careful not to increase the stitches, which I have perfected - the increasing that is, not the keeping them the same number. So there as been some coarse language and unravelling.
Obviously a long way to go before Little J will be able to snuggle under this!
Now to those leaves. I have to admit, we do have the most beautiful views of the autumn leaves in our area. The drive to school/work each morning (via the interstate) has been breath-taking - almost car crashing breath taking. Which means I have
little no photos of the most magnificent foliage as I'd rather keep my car out of the ditch. ☺
So instead, I took a couple of snaps from the front veranda this evening.
No, not Snoopy and his leaves....
Sorry, not the most brilliant photo. The light has been weird this evening, I think as it has been raining. The leaves are nearly done now, but despite the drought this year, they have been magnificent.
Perhaps I will engage Little J's photography skills on the ride to school tomorrow? He can occasionally be quite handy with the camera.
Well I must be off! Homework is calling......
