You wouldn't think that the simple task of packing up Eve's belongings to load into the car to take to London could take so long. Eve is now in London, she went by train on Thursday with enough stuff to last for a few days. All the rest of her belongings are still in Liverpool waiting to be driven down.
So I have spent the last few days, sorting, packing and loading up her stuff.
There was a time when I thought it wasn't going to fit into our small car - but I did manage it. I think a love of jigsaw puzzles helped me to fit everything in and some super vacuum bags that compressed all the bedding and towels down to a manageable size.
So we're ready for the off, to drive down to London so that we can reunite Eve with her belongings.
I feel that I haven't caught up with myself this week, there seems to be a lot of unfinished business. Knitting and crocheting have been neglected and it's been difficult to find time to blog.
I'm hoping that next week will be different. I'm definitely planning on being organised next week! I have serious plans for September.
In the meantime, I'm feeling very indifferent to my current knitting project. It's the Dancing Bees shawl.
Each section of the pattern represents something different. The first section is the bees in the hive.
The second section is the honeycomb of the hive.
The third section is the bees a outside the hive.
The fourth section is lavender flowers.
And the fifth section is a trellis.
The final section will be the border which is more flowers.
I'm just not liking the different sections, I don't think they flow into each other very well. The lavender section doesn't do anything for me. The shawl is also very large, far larger than I would need, and that was after doing a reduced number of repeats.
I may give the border a try and see how it looks, but I've a feeling this shawl is heading for the frog pond. We'll see! What do you think?
