Thinking about those mountains in Scotland


Edit: I tried, oh how I tried, to get the mountains straight...

That's me back to the drawing board.

The sky is grey and that white blotch was supposed to be a big fat moon. Because it's night.

I'll never amount to anything in the knitting world. Sigh.

Is it square?
If it's not square it's a reject I'm afraid.

Like a rainbow crashed into the mountain... I like the blue nippular I am sunbathing on my back mountains. I haven't been up Ben Nevis though or even sat on him.
(Yes, it early for the vulgar jokes but I have a bad headache so the beer is poured).

PS I like rainbows. Editing as I don't think that came out how I meant it. Silver lining, pot of gold & all that. We could all do with that in life.

Hope your head feels better soon, Neddy.

Miss M, I think the square looks fab. Don't be so tough on yourself.




That's our job.

Re: EF community knit/crochet project #5- snuggle blanket.

Picture of the current pile of squares.... some not so square. If BM's going to be mega stroppy I think I might have to re-do a few of them!

A 20x40 rectangle would work.
If they are not square but have some 'give' in them ( like in ribbing or cable for example) they are also fine.
I usually find a way to accommodate all the squares.

Think most will be fine once I've threatened 'em with the steam iron and a ton of pins! They do stretch into 20x20 squares (well, all but one which needs a serious talking to), but as they are at the moment they're all over the shop.

hello vlh22...haven't seen you around for a while (might be me studying and not EF-ing though...). How are things?
I moved back to the UK last April, so I haven't been on EF so much... until I got sucked in by these crochet projects!

I've been through a bit of a rough patch the last few months... started working, had a relapse, was hospitalised, became homeless and lost my job in the space of a month or so. Thankfully the council have housed me and I now have my own flat... and also a little furry companion (Talitha). Next step is doing some voluntary work.

Ouf, knew you'd moved back to UK, but sounds like it was a bumpy ride! Glad the council has been able to support, and I'm sure Talitha is supervising you carefully....my cats insist that supervising is best done with one's eyes closed...some sort of cat magic no doubt!

Re: EF community knit/crochet project #5- snuggle blanket.

So, I was inspired by EE's rain mac square... I think these will blend in perfectly with Anjela's pile, no?
