Hi all. I have an FO to show you. It’s a basket crocheted out of super bulky jute yarn from work. This stuff is probably great for macrame but it’s a battle to crochet. It’s so rough and thick and my wrists and hands didn’t enjoy making this basket at all. I loosely followed the pattern on the ball band but I could see it wasn’t going to stay flat if I didn’t add extra stitches on the base. I also ignored the instructions to do front loop hdc on the sides or it would have curled in on itself very oddly.
I’ve had some lovely knitting and tea time with friends this afternoon. It felt good to be back to the easy relaxing knitting on the scarf after that jute.
I made gluten-free muffins and gallons of Yorkshire tea.
I have now used up three-fifths of the O’Go Donut. Two colours to go.
I took advantage of the daylight to open up Advent bag #3 which yielded a mushroom coloured yarn and another green bead.
Today’s recommended podcast is The Cozy Cottage Crochet. Hannah in Florida talks about crochet, her designs, and her cute baby daughter, Nova.
Two shifts to work before Mr Fixit and I are off on our retreat. Can’t wait!
