A windy cold day

dishcloth

Maybe my Seaside dishcloth is trying its best to be a panacea for the bitterly cold wind we’ve had today. All week, the temperatures have been well below freezing. I think -24 was the coldest night. Life has proceeded as usual.

This is Bernat Handicrafter in a colourway called By The Sea. The pooling is rather interesting. It’s crocheted in Tunisian Simple Stitch. I do find that method very relaxing and meditative.

I have been trying to fit in all my usual favourite things this week in addition to studying my plant-based nutrition course. Netflix has had to be abandoned – I just don’t have the time for it, what with work, household stuff, piano practice, my course and my crochet. Oh, and I was a good girl this week – I went to the pool THREE times and swam a whole lotta lengths.

Work was quiet on Thursday but today was busy. I have two more shifts before Christmas Eve and I will definitely be wearing my pink Santa hat. The Christmas buttons are going on sale tomorrow and I found some today that look like mini Christmas lights. Those are just screaming to be made into earrings!

Have to run – dinner needs to be made. Have a great week!

Edited to add: I forgot to mention some fun news. A while back I won a free pattern – it’s a paid pattern published by Kathryn at Crafternoon Treats (she has a blog and a podcast and a couple of Facebook pages). She asked people to guess how many rounds we thought were in her round granny stitch blanket which she called a Blandala. I guessed exactly right and she sent me a pattern pdf. Well, fast forward to last week, and she had a big shawl pattern giveaway on her podcast, and I won again! I now have a pdf of a pretty crocheted shawl pattern called Dragonfruit. I am feeling lucky. Next, the lottery!!

  1. I won’t be making one yet, as other projects are in the queue. But I’m glad to have the pattern ready for the day!
    How cool to win the yarn for it.
