MR GROUNDHOG PREDICTS AN EARLY SPRING

The groundhog didn't see his shadow today so maybe we'll have an early spring. At least, I didn't see the sun, I was kind of busy all day. lol...

It's warmed up today and is 3℃ or 37.4 ℉. tonight and I can hear water dripping off the roof. It's supposed to rain here and then snow. 

I really don't have anything to blog about today but I've decided to do a post anyway. I've been on Zoom prayer meetings and Bible study almost every day this week and my circle of friends keeps growing.

I somewhat managed to crochet a small section on my latest chevron baby blanket and I find that the progress is very slow because of single crochet.  The pattern is very simple but still, I have to pay attention as it's so easy to miss a stitch, and then I have to unravel a row. 

I have a whole large laundry basket full of crocheted baby blankets.  I still have a lot of baby yarn in pastel colors that I need to use up, then maybe I'll start crocheting some shawls and lap blankets for seniors or maybe, do other crafts.

I did some more hooking and tweaking on the blue mantel but still more tweaking to do but I can only do a little bit at a time. I'm sure you are getting tired of looking at it.  My loops are so uneven, maybe it is because I'm hooking with a #3 cut on monks' cloth but # 3 cuts is so much easier on my hands than #5 cut.

One area, I'm not too sure on how to go about fixing, where the directional hooking is not flowing nicely. Tweaking isn't my favorite thing to do and it takes time and perseverance and I don't like to rush the process. Then, I'll start on the background. I haven't decided if I'll make it plain or multi-color like the image. 



Thanks for visiting my blog.  I really appreciate it when you leave a comment.
