Crochet Progress

Hello Folks!

I am totally absorbed in crochet at the moment.  Progress on our godson's wedding blanket is coming along nicely.  So far I have 80 ish and I think I will need 300 ish, so I'm getting there.  When I looked at these circles I realised the colours were all a bit blues and greens so I popped into Stroud and bought colours way out of my comfort zone,
namely baby pink and yellow.  Not colours I'd usually go for but they really zing things up a bit.  I also got navy blue and another shade of pink, which I have yet to use.
The temperature blanket continues, one square a day.  
Yesterday I went to the optician to try out new contact lenses.  I've worn lenses for 30 odd years but my near vision has deteriorated, so I'm now wearing lenses that have one eye correction for distance and one for near vision.  This sounds a bit weird and I was sceptical, but your brain sorts out what you are seeing, what an amazing thing.   I'm getting on really well with them so far, and I can crochet and sew ends in without having to find my reading glasses, so at the moment I'm pleased.  I'll see how I get on at school tomorrow.

There are some other exciting things happening at Clicky Needles towers but I'll share that with you next time.

Until then have a wonderful week.

Bye for now................Clicky Needles.


  1. You're making such great progress on both afghans! It's so much fun to watch. :)

  2. Glad things are working well for you with the new lenses, I have just had to order my first pair of varifocals, I am very nervous about them!

  3. Great that your lenses are working well for you and that you are making good progress on your crochet, but how can you leave me hanging wondering what you are up to :) Happy Week! xx

  4. You've reminded me that I need to a. start wearing my contact lenses again and b. book my annual check-up at the optician. I have multi-focal contact lenses and got on well with them, but in recent months I've been forgetting to put them in and put on my glasses first thing in the morning and before I know it, it's 6pm and I remember that I haven't worn my lenses, which is daft when they're better than my glasses and I'm paying for them each month. Really liking the blanket; I've got a ripple on the go, but haven't got it out of the bag for a couple of weeks, so must remedy that.

  5. I have had contacts like that for about 25 years now and they are great.

    1. A few weeks on and I really love them.


Thanks so much for popping in to read my ramblings!
Please leave a comment ~ I do appreciate them.
