OK, I know catastrophe is a massive exaggeration but last night I really felt as though the world had ended. I ran out of yarn for the join with one row and three squares to join. I guess that's what happens when you don't plan a project properly.
I ordered another ball this morning but I know there's as much chance of getting the same dye lot as there is of me winning the lotto(which I didn't buy a ticket for).
I was super bummed last night over this mistake but this morning things are in perspective. I'm forced to take a break now from the blanket while I wait for the yarn so I can do some Christmas crochet instead. This led me to another thought, I follow of a lot of blogs and websites of people who crochet/knit/sew/felt etc, everyone there is excited about Christmas. Whereas in the offline world where people shop for their presents the majority of people complain about how much they hate Christmas. I wonder is that why people who create their own presents love Christmas because they are eliminating a lot of the commercial hectic Christmas world.
To check out everyone else's progress head on over to Gingerbread Girls Blog. I must go now and investigate a strange odour coming from my son, perhaps its due to the inclusion of peas and broccoli in his food. Oh this weaning is so much fun :)
Until next time,
Happy Crocheting, x
P.S. I promise to put up my post about Ben's christening gown, I was waiting for a photo of him on his big day but since I didn't take any photos on the day I must wait for guests to email me some photos. This is taking too long so I will post with just photos of the gown.
