Its that time of year when I look in my garden and start wondering what I want to grow and plant. Things go a little slower in Berwick so I get a little grace when it comes to sowing seeds and planting out!
Since this is my first year vegan, I’m thinking of growing lots of greens and beans. I always make space somewhere to grow sweetpeas, a family favourite. If I can get a cold frame built, we’ll have tomatoes too.
I’m still working my way through the DK yarn I have and that’s after I had a clear out a few weeks ago. I could do with designated yarn storage and have been finding some interesting things on Pinterest. A decent set of drawers with a retro make over would be to my taste for sure.
These are the thoughts I’m using to distract myself from the big issue. The thing thats tearing me up inside.
I have to hold my hands up in defeat in the Tunisian crochet along. The double spiral pattern just wasn’t working out for me.
When picking up a crochet hook made my stomach drop I knew I had to step away for the sake of my sanity. I’ve been crocheting for a long, long time and this is the first time I’ve given up on a pattern. After exhaustive research online I could only find 2 people IN THE WHOLE WORLD who had actually completed it, and they both tweaked the pattern
That makes me feel slightly better. It’s not goodbye forever, though. All the times I restarted the pattern, I kept the ‘mistakes’. I’ve made loads of notes and posted lots of pics. It’s simply a pause, while I do other things. One day I’ll come back to it, not to complete it, but to fix it 🙂
