In Transit

As Clairey suggested, I really need to do my cushion in all different colours but I seem to lack the correct wool. I always think I have loads but somehow I never have exactly what I need. So I paused on the blue whilst I think about going back to a wool shop and instead tried it out with the really thin cotton yarn I have for the amigurimi stuff I've done in the past. I also tried out Rachel's interpretation of the instructions which differ to mine.

Crochet 03

I'm so indecisive that I'll probably end up doing both a bit more to see if I like one better than the other. The cotton yarn is definitely harder as it's so tiny and has less stretch so you have to have your stitches just right so they're not to tight or too baggy. I think the woolier wool allows you to hide a multitude of sins so maybe I'll finish that one first.

Was watching an old episode (well they all are aren't they?) of Friends, and was surprised to see one of these crocheted cushions on Monica's couch!

How time changes things, I once watched Friends for the characters but now I watch the furnishings!

I was going to set up an EYSY shop but I never got round to photographing the objects. I'll let you know when I finally get round to it. I think part of me is scared no one would want them!
