There is obviously a certain amount of stupidity involved when deciding to crochet with pure wool in Melbourne's current temperatures (37 yesterday, 41 today and the forecast is much the same for the next few days at least).
But I had suffered through a mornings worth of ten pin bowling (where the four year won!) and felt that these are my holidays too so surely I get to do something I want!
Then I happened to find the entire movie of Good Will Hunting on youtube (how is that legal??!!), so I had the perfect excuse to plop myself under the cooling vent and pleasantly while away two hours of the day.
What did I do with my tv time before crochet?! It feels like I am being so productive when I watch now with a bit of craft in my hands.
Mario blanket status update...
Just waiting now for the last red ball of wool to arrive so I can finish his overalls!
That lonely blue square to the bottom left is as big as the blanket will be. I have a lovely pale blue ready to go for a nice simple edge and am seriously consdering a working bee too assist with sewing in all those jolly ends!!!!
