Mr Locket had confirmation yesterday that the firm he works for is going to close down soon.
He's an archaeologist. Jobs like that don't come up very often.
The crochet and chocolate aren't working at making things feel better.
Especially as the crochet isn't working either.
I looked again at the joined together squares and compared them with my first blanket. They are all wonky and distorted from the joining.
So I unravelled them all.
Then I decided that any way of joining them with their white edging was going to look squiffy.
So I unravelled all the edging as well.
They don't look like tiles anymore.
And I can't decide how I want to finish them.
Should they have a white granny border?
Should I edge them with the grey?
(these are just the squares I'd already made that had grey as their outer border - if I edged them there would be another round)
Should I just join them together as they are and then have a white border round the whole blanket?
Or should I just give up on it for a bit and go and knit some socks for my friend's birthday instead? And drink wine. And eat more chocolate.
