I know you all think I’m very clever with my crochet but I’m here to tell you I’m really not
The above pic is a big doily I’m making for my mother’s Christmas present
It’s ok. She’s not on the net lol
Anyway I was happily crocheting along. Thinking how easy is this pattern, until I had to start to decrease
One of the triangles wouldn’t work no matter what I did
So I looked down, down, down, till I found the problem
See the hook?
I had put an extra stitch there.
So it all had to be pulled out!
The bottom pic is where I finished off
I was not happy but it needed to be done!
Also the other present I have made wouldn’t sit flat at the ends
I used a thicker ply and it was fine till the last three rows with all its chains
So I ripped out those and re did them adding extra stitches.
It’s now much nicer.
I had decided to clean up around the dogs couch area outside and as there couch was looking a little worse
For wear, I had purchased a cover
I cleanup up all the leaves and took their mat out to dust off and put on the new cover
Hubby helped and we got it done
As you know. When your busy you don’t notice things. But afterwards, while ripping out my work I kept itching my arm
A huge red welt had come up and was slowing getting bigger
Now as you know. I’m not good with reactions so I immediately took antihistamines
As it was starting to itch up my arm and little red dots had begun to appear
My Facebook family advised remedies and I took it all onboard
This morning it looks much better. And I still don’t know if it was a bite of some kind
Or me touching a plant that I’ve reacted too
As I did do some planting earlier in the day
But I will keep an eye on it, and hopefully by tomorrow at the latest it will be gone
So you see
I’m not clever at all
And I’m kinda accident prone too lol
Don’t you feel better now you know how silly I am!
Your welcome lol
Have a lovely day
See ya xxx
