Something exciting!

I was sitting last night crocheting the fine cotton attic 24 bag I have been working on when I had a bit of a revelation.  You see yesterday while at the mall to purchase some pasta to make dinner I had a wee accident.

My wet shoes (it was raining) slipped on the metal travelator (just like an escalator with no steps the steps are flat to allow for shopping carts) while going down one floor to the supermarket, I landed on my knee resulting in this

and many wrenched muscles in my arm shoulder, neck and back.  The good news is that it didn't put a hole in my trousers.  The bad news was a quite swollen bruised knee that bled every time I bent it.

As a result I was ordered to my chair with an ice pack.

As such I was crocheting much earlier in the evening than is normal and thus I had my revelation.

I excitedly told the husband my thoughts, he wasn't overly interested and patted me on the head indulgently while enquiring if perhaps I'd bumped it during my fall!  Cheeky sod!

None the less, I put away the bag and grabbed some leftover cotton/acrylic mix and started with my idea.  It's progressing very well and I can't wait to show you.  I've been keeping a careful track of all I have done, I'm taking photos as I go.  Hopefully I will finish it tonight, but it is very much dependent upon finding the WG's pop star outfit this afternoon.  With any luck I will have a result tomorrow and a tutorial to go along with it!


  1. Arghhhhhh . . . how rude! Now I'm so excited I don't want to wait until tomorrow. (I'm being cheeky by the way, I don't really think you're rude). Oh how I love those moments of inspriation as they often result in the best creations. Looking forward to seeing it!

  2. I'm crocheting my fingers off LOL. I got the WG's costume sorted, Brooke Fraser.
