I'm getting very excited about my trip to London tomorrow although I'm not looking forward to the very early start and very late night part of it! We will be leaving at about 6.30am and not getting home until about 1.30am (and that's counting on the trains being on time!!)
I'm busily trying to finish things off that I want to take with me.
Like Lesley I have made an inner bag for my capacious handbag here.
Lesley has made hers for storing all the bits at the bottom of her bag but mine is for my knitting and crocheting as I can't bear the thought of all the time on the train when I could be making something! (Lesley says she will spend the time looking out of the window for foxes - it takes all sorts I suppose!)
It nearly killed me spending 2 hours doing absolutely nothing while I was having my hair done this afternoon and although my hair looks great I really resent that lost time (especially as I know it will be back to looking a mess tomorrow!)
I also know I'll take far too much stuff with me tomorrow and will regret it when I have to carry it all back - I even contemplated making up the first strip of my crochet blanket and wearing it as a scarf so I could add to it on the way down and wear it home - but even I'm not that barmy (yet!)
I treated myself to a new crochet hook which arrived today
The other good post that arrived today was my copy of this book
that Vicious Chicken blogged about the other week - it looks really good and I am having to be very strict with myself and not take all the needles and wool to start new projects for it on the train tomorrow!
I am hoping to stick to my sock knitting and my crochet - I'll get a few small balls of wool wound and will start off several centres so I can leave some of the wool behind. Granny Squares seem to be very compulsive once you start them - or maybe that's just me!
All the other things I have been working on are secret so I can't show you yet. Sorry!!!
