Oh Lucy, why did I not heed your warning about these addictive pretties.
I was reading Daisy Jones blog and she mentioned Attic24, so over there I hopped. I had read yesterdays post about Yarndale and no I was not about to make a Mandala. Then I looked at the pretties and thought ......well maybe....just one. Lucy warned that they are super addictive and that I would not stop at just one, did I heed her wise words, that will be a big fat NO then.
Nice but it needs blocking.
Then after a little while, I thought..................well maybe...........just one more.
I like this one too, I see it in several colour combinations, some day.
I made a brew and watched a little TV, Mentalist and NCIS.
Then I flicked through Issue 17 of simply Crochet and saw this.
Well I slept and then I woke up, and once all the little jobs had been done and Ben had been walked I made a start, there is something wrong with the bottom right, I have an extra stitch in the pale pink so I will take it back later and see what has gone awry.
Poor Mrs frank will get some attention a bit later, I do feel guilty at her neglect but will make it up to her. On the other hand I am hooked on Mandalas and loving it.
Reasons to be grateful.
1. Another bit of crochet to dally with.
2. Some new techniques and stitches learned.
3. There are many free Mandala patterns in blogland.
4. It has rained today but is fine now, just in time for Ben's next walk.
5. I have a new skirt, tags still on, from Next via the CS for £2:50.
All in all another good day, I am off to walk Ben while it is dry.
BTW I tried to get into Bloglovin to have a hop around my followers but could not figure out how to do it, any tips will be welcome.
