To cut a long story short, we are moving, again. Abroad, again. Things are progressing much faster than anticipated, and we will be leaving Scotland at the end of next month. Suffice to say I am stressed. Seriously stressed. But in a good way. I'm really excited about our future, which I'll share with you in good time. I like things to be fully squared away before I share, I'm just a bit superstitious that way.
I do have a couple of WIP's this week. I've made progress (ok, a little bit) on Rori's shrug. It is harder to work on right now because I have to focus on what I'm doing, the sleeves and the back work off different row numbers. "Ouch" says my over-taxed brain. But I'm getting there.
I'm also working on what I've dubbed "The Stress Blanket" We were calling it by all manner of names, and still do, but really it is just a stash busting masterpiece that is lovely for all of its ugliness. I'm letting my girls pick the yarn as I go, and Isla's already claimed it for future use in front of the tv. I can't ask for more than that. It is a super easy pattern, especially for my limited crochet skills, and it eats up the yarn. I really want to use up any yarn that isn't set aside for future projects.
