Two Shades of Grey

The Rico Cotton Yarn order arrived today, super-speedy as always........except I've ordered the wrong grey.  

Crochet, Blanket, Egg on a Stick, yarn


It's VERY disappointing to open a parcel of yarn only to find you've been a bit of a div.  Grrrrrrrrrrrrrr.  

But I think my grey cloud is actually one with a silver lining.  After lots of careful consideration (plonking colours on top of the packet), I think I prefer it to the light grey (too lazy to return it).

So I shall unravel the light grey and do another 250 chain with the dark.  Oh joy.  I love doing foundation chains.  No, really,  I do.  No, really.

'Would you like a cup of tea?'


'Mummmmmmmmmy.  What are you doing?
'Making a very long chain of stitches for your birthday blanket.'
'Mummmmmmmmmy.  What are the yellow bits of wool for?
'So I know how many stitches I've done.  I put one in every time I've done 20.'
'Mummmmmmmmmy.  I want to make a blanket.'
'Yes. I shall make it out of all these bits of yellow wool I pulled from yours....'

Egg on a Stick was mainly brought to you by Co-op Malted Choc Biscuits, the little biscuit with a very long description on the packet.  Kinda sucks the joy out of them a wee bit. Oh no, sorry, that was me ;-)

Egg on a Stick, biscuits
