Guilty Pleasures

I've had a very happy knitting and crocheting weekend.

So much progress has been made on the two projects I am concentrating on at the moment.

The obvious reason for this is, as always, sport.

Yes, as if I needed an excuse to sit and knit and crochet all day long, this weekend has been a packed one for sport on the television.

  • Open Golf from Hoylake (we were there in person on the Thursday).
  • Second test match between England and India in cricket. 
  • Continuing coverage of the Tour de France.
  • World darts matchplay championship
  • F1 German Grand Prix.  

So, with all this sofa-time, my grey crochet blanket is changing from little squares to bigger squares.

I've made 144 little squares in total, which will give me 36 bigger squares.  I've yet to decide on a border, but I've still got some time before I have to worry about this.

As far as the cardigan is concerned, I've made it up to the armholes - always a sense of achievement when this point is reached.

I'm really happy with the way the lacy pattern is looking, and it's enjoyable to knit.

I'm now feeling guilty about all the time on the sofa, so today will be a catching up with jobs day, maybe tomorrow I'll feel less guilty and I'll make more progress on the projects!
