Knit and Crochet along

I have such a stash of woollen yarn that when I saw the Knit and Crochet along the Arne and Carlos were hosting I decided to join in.

Of course in all that stack of wool that I have in the cupboard I didn't have one ball of yellow, which I need for the centre of the flowers!  That is just "Murphy's Law", so I had to buy a ball of wool, just one, but if I like this I may have to buy another.

There are supposed to be 270 flowers in the throw, mine is going to be as many as I can make out of the one ball of wool which at the moment only stands at 70.  I will have to buy another ball of wool.

And my wool will not match those used by Arne.  They are using Rowan, which costs a fortune here.  No, mine is going to be what is in the stash, mainly wool from Bendigo woollen mills.

Crocheting the centres is kind of mindless, so I am doing 10 at a time and keeping a record of the total on the outside of the bag.  The other reason I am doing this is because all my flower throws have disappeared.  How can something so big just vanish?  I think if I look in the homes of my children I might find them.

I noticed that that knit-along bit is a continuation of blocks they started a few years ago.   There are 28 in the file of past blocks.  I will collect the patterns and keep them for next year I think.

Good to know other people have UFO's.

Oh, we all have UFOs - or "Works in Slow Progress", which I find a more optimistic term!
