Well, I'll happily talk about the crocheting bit, but definitely not about the cricket, grrr. I was looking forward to the 4th Test match. I was looking forward to spending the day crocheting whilst watching cricket. Of course nothing went to plan, that would make life too easy, wouldn't it?
I have never seen a worse start ( from our point of view, SA was extremely happy of course ). To lose the first wicket on the very first ball is just so cruel. Sigh, I can't talk about it, its too painful, lets just say we lost wickets at a rather rapid pace. Then we realised that we had forgotten about an appointment, which took an 1 1/2 hours out of my crochet and cricket viewing time. Then I spent ages on the phone with the estate agent through which our DS No.1 is hopefully buying his first flat. Stressful, this buying lark, I had almost forgotten about that.
I have no idea what else kept me from crocheting more, but in the end, I only managed 4 1/2 granny squares today, isn't that pathetic? I love love love crocheting with this beautiful yarn, the Manos del Uruguay silk blend. It really is wonderful to work with. You remember from a couple of posts ago, don't you, the lovely purply yarns I bought in the sale?
Dang, why are purples so difficult to photgraph?
I had to take the photos of the squares with flash this evening, and thats even worse. Still, at least it will show you that I have done something, not very much, lol, but a teeny weeny bit. Hopefully, tomorrow I won't have too many interruptions/cricket disappointments and can get on with the crocheting properly.
Short post today. Gotta watch Silent Witness and crochet a bit more.
Night night xx
