Today, for the first time in ages, I was actually able to make it to the craft morning at my church. I’ve really missed hanging out with these ladies and it was fab to be back. I debated for ages about which project to take with me, but finally decided that I really ought to do something about trying to finish off my spirits of life wrap. I know… It’s been forever… And I’d stopped somewhere in the middle of a C2c section so I couldn’t even decide to call it quits and turn it into a cushion cover or something.
So the first half hour of the session was spent getting the tablet to work so I could see the pattern. Then trying to find where in the pattern it told me which size hook to use… Before then discovering the hook in the bottom of the project bag it was stored in!
But then I sped off making progress! It really helped that I’d worked recently on my c2c blanket as the technique was familiar to me. Plus I didn’t need to follow the pattern too much as I just lined the new column of blocks up with the ones underneath in the previous section.
Here’s where it started today
Where it got to by early afternoon
What I’ve added to it this evening while watching TV.
The other lovely thing is that one of the ladies put it round my shoulders to see what it would look like as I was worried it was too narrow due to my tension and would end up too long to be a useful shawl. When she did that (why had I not thought to try it myself??) I realised it was going to be perfect, and would look just gorgeous, so now I actually have motivation to finish it so I can wear it 😊.
We’ll see how quickly it progresses now!
P. S. Sorry about the blurry photos… My phone seems to be getting less and less reliable with the quality of photos

I love it ❤ and you will feel wonderful wearing it 😃
It’ll still be a while before I get to do that, even if I work really hard on it!
very nice 🙂 And I definitely relate with the ‘doesn’t think of really obvious thing until someone else suggests it’ thing. Just gotta grin and bear it! (and remember everyone gets it from time to time)
I guess we have to realise that sometimes we come up with the obvious thing for someone else!
The colours are lovely. Yep, I’m usually that person who says ‘why didn’t I think of that’ 🙂
It seems we’re not alone in that. Thank goodness for people who state the obvious for us!
Thank you so much😊
It’s beautiful! definitely worth finishing, can’t wait to see what it looks like when you wear it. Lovely autumnal colours.
Thank you so much. This evening I completed the 5th section of 9,so it’ll be a while before I get to wear it yet. Glad I’ve restarted on it though
