Mindful Magpie Makes: 2020 week 10


02/03/2020 to 08/03/2020

A week of travelling, disruption and very little crafting. I was visiting the site in Scotland that I look after which meant a very long day on Tuesday, late flights and diversions when the new Queensferry crossing was closed overnight, but arrived at my hotel half an hour before midnight. I managed to crochet a few hexagons the following evening, but when I woke up the next day, it was to find out that FlyBe had gone bust & I had no flight home. A minor inconvenience in the light of people losing their jobs, and connectivity in remoter areas. I ended up extending my car hire to get back to Birmingham airport, pick up my car and drive another few hours back home.

Over the weekend though, I got to visit friends and also take a trip to Wool on the Exe, a gorgeous yarn shop on the banks of the river. My friend and I discussed the recent floods, and the news that the virus seemed to be getting closer and closer. One of the people I met in Scotland had been to Italy, although not the quarantined area. With the mantra, you only live once, I splurged on 5 skeins of beautiful yarns, two dyed by Wool on the Exe herself and three from the amazing River Knits UK (picture above)



#09 - I never promised you a rose garden (crochet)

More hexies crocheted, although not as many as I would have liked. It has been a hell of a week though. I do have a nice stack of them now, half a blanket worth. Although, I may decide to have a triangular shawl instead... I guess the time has come when I need to start joining these up to see what they look like...

I've not worked on any other project for a couple of weeks now, this one is definitely consuming my attention!
