Tuesday Tally time again


Eek! It's been a whole week and I haven't posted about anything else, so it's back to Tuesday's Tally again.  After last week's tally I re-evaluated my blanket plan and decided to go with something a little bit more 'little girlie' as this is for my 3 year old, so I have started a whole new blanket! I have selected this pattern from Ravelry, by Solveig Grimstad, although there were several contenders. I'm so indecisive and have swung between three or four patterns, but finally decided on this one. Tess loves it, so hopefully it'll be good when it's done as this will be my first ever crochet blanket.





I now have 25 squares - all done over three four days! I got sidetracked by some dolly knitting yesterday and didn't get a chance to do any, but will be getting another few under my belt tonight.

In other news Oliver has been selected to play in the Wellington Federation District Team in their talent development programme. This is very exciting for him and has been a bit of a boost for his confidence. It does, however, mean that our summer will now be packed with soccer practices and games - so much for my reprieve from being a sports taxi driver!

Ok, must dash - have Izzy's parent/teacher/child conference this evening and I must get the washing out and dinner on. Until next week ....


Edited to add: I've completed another three squares tonight, so officially 28 squares for my Tuesday Tally!

  6. Thanks everyone! Actually, I got it wrong - 25 squares in 4 days, and now up to 28. Deb, I'm using a basic 100% wool for the circle part (the colours) and an acrylic for the white (couldn't find a bright enough white in 100% wool).
