Ok so managed to suvive the journey home last night including wadeing through the ticket office at Liverpool Street and waiting for Romford to reopen due to a fatality. It was a pity as I had had a wonderful time with Lisa after work.
I also forgot to take my camera to work so no up to date pictures of the Swallowtail shawl I’m afraid I promise to try and remember next week.
I have managed to block the Curlique blanket though although it did leave me starnded like a beached whale for a while, I think all other large scale blocking is now going to wait for after Peanuts arrival.
My blocking was a little wonky but the yarn has softened up even further. I have also restarted the crochet pram blanket for Peanut, its using Jan Eatons Green Gables pattern from her ripple stitch book on a lot larger needle than last time so is a little less like cardboard:)
I did have something strange happen on the way home last night, I bumped into an old friend from the US at Liverpool Street Station last night, we haven’t spoken since before Robin died so maybe over three years, I am not totally sure why we lost conatct but it was a little strained last night, but I wasn’t quite sure what to say to her to be honest when she asked what I had been up to. Apparently her an her husband now live here and have done since Christmas, we swapped numbers so I guess we will see what happens.
