Craft - trackwork

The athletics track is a new addition to my list of unusual locations for a spot of crochet. It was my (long overdue) turn to take my middle son and his friends to athletics on Tuesday, so I managed to pass a pleasant hour in the evening sun crocheting, drinking tea and chatting to another mum while lots of athletics action happened on the track (10 x 300m reps. apparently).

This picture shows the border just being finished - I think there were two and a half rounds to go at this stage.  The good news is that I finished the whole thing last night - ends and all - just in time to meet Deadline B (well, about 2 hours late, but the recipient didn't mind). I will do a proper post showing the whole blanket when I've manged to take pictures, but the weather today isn't lending itself to blanket photoshoots.  And now I just need to decide which craft project to start next ....

    1. Thank you! I am very pleased with it - will hopefully get some proper pictures up in the next few days.

  2. It looks great, so colourful. I take my crochet everywhere, until the blankets reach a point where you can't easily take them out with your anymore. x

    1. Thank you! This became very unwieldy in the last few weeks but I was on a tight deadline so it went everywhere. My next project is made up of blocks so will be much more portable - phew!


I'm not sure if anyone reads this. But if you do, and you'd like to comment, I'd get very excited. And would try to reply. Thanks!
