Crazee Cowl/Small Steps

Fouth colour
Almost done with the fourth colour

My Mama Weer All Crazee Cowl is growing slowly. The British heat wave has deadened my pace which, let’s face it, is pretty much a crawl on this project even under conducive weather conditions. It’s not that I don’t love the project, because I do, but 300 stitches of K1 P1 rib in sock yarn on 3.00mm needles makes each row a labour of love. All I can say is thank heaven for Charley of Noodle Soup Yarns because gazing in adoration at the colours in the yarn is what will see me through this project.

Next up I will be moving from the muted purples and browns of the Tickled Plum colourway onto the silvery sparkly purple party named Festive.

You know that happy dance that Snoopy does? Well, that will be me when I hit this colour!

Small Steps

It struck me on Thursday morning that it doesn’t take massive gains to turn the day’s mood from slightly negative to slightly positive. Getting to the post office to find the item you’re posting isn’t going to be as expensive as you expected; finding even one job vacancy you like the sound of and that is in a location you are able to get to; the Met Office promising that temperatures will drop come Saturday. These are the tiny gains which mean a lot. Sometimes it is best to put your head down and just take the next small step, rather than constantly looking at a horizon which never seems to get any closer.

Hope you are all keeping well and those in the southern hemisphere aren’t getting too fed up with the constant “it’s too hot” chant coming from us in the north!
