|too hot for blankets, lets just look at them|
I was trying to finish my granny square blanket (shown in the Rocky Road picture), the border is well under way but hey who want's to sit under a hot blanket in this heat? So I guess its going to have to wait another week or so. In the meantime I can still make blankets as squares are so much more portable and I don't need to join them right now. I spent a lot of my weekend in the garden as the weather was so lovely, and we have plans to make some more changes to the area in front of the pond. I like the idea of a chill out area, and those rattan sofas are calling me. I can see myself with a cold drink or cup of tea crocheting to the sound of moving water. But this involves moving a rather large kennel so its early planning stages for now.
I'm also helping with the yarnbombmoth project and my squares are looking lovely (if I may say so myself) I haven't made granny squares from Stylecraft Special DK in a long time, so this is a great opportunity to get back to using it. I have so much in my stash I was more than happy to help out. I plan to send them off in the next couple of days and I'll post a picture or two before I do.

The good thing about my other hobby if that's the correct title, is my love of swimming. I plan to get to the pool every night this week. I started off well last night, managing 40 lengths and rewarding myself with a ten minute sauna followed by a cold shower. So today will be more bearable knowing I can get into the car, full air con and drive to a cool pool, literally. Oh ant the Rocky Road was perfect for the fridge, and its all gone!
