Aye, it's late - or very early, depending on your perspective; and I can't think of a snazzy title.
Today has been a fallopping kind of day; brief visit to check on a friend this morning and then rest of the day was spent playing with cars, puppets, drawing, trains, rocking on Sidney, watching Beauty and the Beast DVD and having a go at playing a wooden flute:
Still crocheting away; the rows I had to frog out of the dress are back correctly now and I'm feeling much happier about it. Feel such a ninny though, I've read the pattern a dozen times to ensure I understood it... and it was one little word that my brain just fogged over: "each".... as in decrease by 1 treble at EACH end of row six... sigh.. I read it as decrease at the end of row 6, which after a while sent me scrabbling to Ravelery to ask advice as I was fairly sure it should be shaping on both sides. Even then the response I receive didn't click, I just kept puzzling how they could say it was shaping both sides, when it clearly wasn't....... and then my eyes caught that word and a light bulb flashed.
I had planned to finish the back of the dress today until I discovered just how cold Rye's feet are, especially since the temperature has dropped the past few days. He's been ok up to know; being that he's so active, so socks were fine - no more. Well, that compelled me to have a go at a pair of slippers for Rye, and this is what I came up with after adapting this incredibly easy peasy pattern
A few friends are pregnant too so I think I'll crochet a few more pairs as gifts.
Right, I ought to get myself to bed, toddler group in the morning.
