It is unfortunately nowhere near finished. Even if I hadn’t forgotten the week I spent away or the many weekends I was travelling rather than crocheting, I was also hit by a bad shoulder which meant no crochet for a (different) week 😦 I haven’t even finished the main head yet, for crying out loud!
Here’s where I’m up to, so far.
I have a bit of a respite- the rest of my year plan for crafting looks like this:
October- test knit a pair of socks for John
November- do the writing NaNo (I write HP fanfiction)
December- knit my OLAS cardigan as a delayed NaNo project
(Then when January starts I’ll do most of that as the cross stitch NaNo and see how far into this wedding sampler I can get).
Am I slightly insane for thinking this is all feasible? Almost certainly. Am I going to learn from this if/when it all fails spectacularly. Probably not. And most importantly- what is the repite I was talking about?
Well, this comes in two parts.
A-I can easily knit a sock in less than a month, so I have quite a lot of October to also finish this elephant. (Also, the knitting group at Uni has started again so I have even more time to make things)
B- the pattern for the socks I’m test knitting hasn’t arrived yet, so even if I wanted to start work on it, I can’t. (John, please keep procrastinating…)
Right, I’m off to keep crocheting! Wish me luck on this deadline!
