Back after a mad few weeks, but so happy to see family from afar who came to visit in May, it had been way too long!
So I met the blanket deadline bit by bit and here is a snapshot taken rather hurriedly before gifting to my great nephew, so now I have two great nephews and a great niece and this blanket was the largest of the three as its suitable for a small bed and for a child to cuddle in front of the cartoons on the tele (or when camping!)
The blanket started out just in peach which is fine for a boy so after 400G I decided to change it and pulled it all back EEK. I had an idea to add pale aqua / pastel turquoise if there is such a thing??
I'm sure I spent more time sewing in ends (which I wanted to do well given this will be washed multiple times) than crocheting LOL But the stripes remind me of the seaside, sand water and bubbles 😉
I liked the end result BUT now I know I need smaller projects so mental note not to put myself under so much pressure, especially with CTS. And a surprise today, date for hand surgery came through to relieve the carpal tunnel symptoms. Was told it will be about 2 mths wait, but letter quotes 20th July! I guess better to get it over with. I am fed up with night splints which give me a lightly better sleep but still keep me awake and taking anti inflammatory tablets all day. My stomach and kidneys will be glad to get rid of those!!
So 10 days off and its an hr or two procedure so fairly quick. In the meantime I'm getting some more crafting in. What will I do if I cant have something creative in my hands for a few days? a few Netflix catch-ups and some reading.
Will pop back with something new soon. Enjoy your summer days, in-between the little bit of rain and hail, it has been nice and warm.
