Crochet – Conkered!

I took my Conker Feet slippers to Spinning group this morning and enlisted help with my crochet. I successfully crocheted around the tops, and added a double crochet edge to the straps  as well. The ends are all sewn in and now all I need is a pair of buttons. I am thinking of crocheting those as well!

Photos later, perhaps, but I’d like to do the buttons first. On the other hand, we have some light and a little sun today, so doing photos today would make a lot of sense.


The Magic Loop socks are progressing well though this one does seem rather snug and I am slightly disappointed by the two lines that I am seeing at the joins. I think I am over compensating and pulling the yarn too tightly at the join. Must relax a little. Am now about halfway down the foot section. Should be at the toes tonight. This is very fast sock progress, for me at least.

Nell’s excessive drinking and urination have ramped up considerably. Hence I was outside at a little past 2 am this morning, by which time the car was already covered in a sparkling frost. On the 6 am toilet run, the world was looking fairly well white all over (as viewed through the window from my bed, that is). When we first came house-hunting around here there was snow on the ground (apparently a once inContinue readingThe Cold Light of Day

An interesting morning. Up and at ’em we went to Intermarché to fuel up and to buy some food for when we arrive home. They were queuing outside the door for what appeared to be controlled entry. There were queues for fuel too. “We’re not that desperate” we said and set off for home. It… Continue reading October 29, 2020 at 10:24AM
