I've crocheted the same scarf design three times. Well almost three times, I'm on the third version of my pattern, (my Sarah London Scarf design), and I'm hoping it's third time lucky, and this will be the final version.
And the reason I'm crocheting this scarf so many times? It's because I want to get the width just right to be snuggly, and I'm also trying to get the numbers of balls of yarn I'm using down to as few as possible, so it is as reasonably priced to make as I can get it.
I've put up patterns for crochet squares before, and the idea is that you run with that square as you please, but this time I plan to do a pattern that is for the entire garment from start to finish. Specifying yarn amounts, width, length, and how to.
Hugo took these pictures on a windy beach last Sunday. There was a real nip in the air.
The day before, the sea was a wild mass of waves. People were standing on the promenade gazing at the sea. Crashing waves are mesmerising don't you think? I like watching them reach their highest point, and then topple over and break up. Fascinating.
If it's not raining, after walking the dogs on the beach, we like to have a coffee on the prom, and read the weekend paper. (I have to regularly remind myself just how fortunate I am to be able to write those words about coffee on the prom, overlooking the sea).
The dogs inevitable end up on our laps, looking like they are in the lap of luxury.
Ellie has perfected this look.
Tomorrow I'm off on a four hour train journey to London, for work, and also to stay with my sister and her family for about five days, so unfortunately I won't be able to do my blog post on Friday, I'm sorry about that. But I hope to be back here next Tuesday. Think of all that lovely knitting and crocheting time! Lovely!
Cheerio! And have a good week.
