Well, I was sitting on the sofa for most of the time - it was really all I could do. I couldn't catch up on any sleep because even laying down was tricky. Using the sewing machine was out of the question, as was walking around the sewing room pulling and slicing fabric. And don't even think of quilting or basting! So there I was on the sofa, getting more and more bored and more and more depressed, when inspiration came in the form of you tube. You see, I Iearned how to crochet via you tube! Isn't technology amazing?
So somehow I managed to procure a couple of balls of yarn (one a cinderella blue and one lime green) and a crochet hook, and I chose a granny square tutorial. Eventually I got the hang of chains and double crochets and my granny square just grew and grew. Before I knew it, it was big enough to cover Milo, haha! He liked to nap next to me on the sofa, so every once in a while I would drape my square over him to guage my progress. Now I wish I had taken a photo ...
But anyway, I soon used up the 2 balls of yarn and sent Yummy Hubby out for more.
(I also told him to get a tapestry needle, but he came back with another crochet hook)
And so my granny square grew ....
And it's still growing ....
I've left it alone for a while now, but I'm not done with it yet! I'm going to keep going until I run out of yarn, and see how big it gets.
Yummy Hubby is impressed with the square (which is really a little blanket by now - measures about 3 feet square). He says it should be given a name, like 'Slipped Disc' to remind me of the time when I made it. Of course I told him that 'Slipped Disc' was a lousy name for a blanket. So then he suggested 'Misery'. Morbid, I know, but you know what? I like it :-)
This little blanket just proves that good things can come from not so good things. *grateful*.
Enjoy the rest of the week all!
