This year's Mother's Day went by in a blur of cricket training. Before J left at the crack of dawn for his he stood smiling by the side of my bed while I attempted to wake up enough for card and present opening. Later it was my turn to taxi E to her training session with another card and presents beforehand. It was nice to see my Mother on Mother's Day too. E, myself and Mum managed to squeeze a coffee and chat in the kitchen while constructing a mixed media shoe box diorama of a sea scene. As you do.
At some stage during this weekend of sport and taxiing I must have managed a spot of crochet. Oh man those loopy sheep things are dull after a while! I think perhaps the friction on my natural off white yarn was such that it made it more challenging. Hence I started making a simple charcoal ribbed crochet beanie whilst having breaks from the loopy madness. Yes I know I made a billion hats at Christmas but I clearly didn't make a charcoal ribbed one for myself and that's what I wanted. It was done and dusted in two sittings. Chunky yarn, a size 6mm hook and back to back Stella (the programme not the beer!)
Off the hook pics to follow very soon.
