I could write loads of words about this ..,,, I wanted to make 25 different coloured squares out of the stash I was taking down to our little house in Spain. I wanted to achieve this working in the car on a three day, 1300 mile journey.
I thought I had achieved my goal .. I was nearly there. I ran out of colours but I knew that once we reached our little Spanish house my wool stash would be waiting for the last two colours I needed. I had enough yarns in the car to make 23 squares. So .... easy ...... Just leave the last two until the end of the journey. Just work the border and then infill. So many stitches. So much counting . The border was finished. All that was needed was the last two infill squares.
I can not tell you how I felt to shake the latest charity blanket out. We had arrived and after being squashed in the tiniest crochet space for the last three days I realised my blanket for charity had three corners! I can not infill with those two squares because I have not left enough space for them !!!! How did I not see that?
So now I have to rip out all that border and start it all over again.
Right now, I would rather chuck the whole lot in the bin. But tomorrow is a new day !!!
