I decided to arrange for someone to come and take a few things to the recycling point (one of the downsides of no car means I can't do this myself now!) One thing was an old TV. I was moving it last night and strained my back in the process. At first it didn't feel too bad but as the day and night wore on got very sore. I could have kicked myself really for (a) not waiting till my daughter's boyfriend arrived to help and (b) using my back instead of my legs when lifting. So that kind of put a scupper on things last night as any time I stretched a bit or stood up I groaned! This morning things were still quite sore however I discovered that if I kept moving it wasn't as bad so have tried to do that today.
Craft wise, here is a picture of the elf baby hat that I crocheted last weekend - wish I'd had a baby on hand to model it on for the picture. Its made of a soft, cosy wool and going by how the temperature has dipped here this week, cosy hats will in vogue again.
I also had the bright idea of making some napkin rings. Thought they may be something people might buy for Christmas time. I got some nice silver coloured organza and made some flowers then I made the bases by crocheting wire, and finally finished them off with a crocheted ribbon yarn centre. Now, they did take quite a long time to make (and I only made 4!) and I'm thinking that I don't know if the time and effort in making them could balance against what I would sell them at. I'm still pondering that.
Made a little squiggle ring for myself tonight -
Well that's all my happenings for today - pop over here now and have a good read of some great blogs :)
