One A Day - Tuesday Tallies


After a crochet catch up last week, sadly this week I've only managed a few rounds of my shawl.

As it gets bigger the longer it takes me to complete a round :) I'm still optimistic that it will be complete in the coming couple of weeks, ready for snuggling as Autumnn arrives.
 
Shawl and scarf together
I did manage to add a few more stripes to my scarf and hope to finish that too.
 
Hop on over to Carole's to check out more gorgeous projects.

Visited Mum yesterday and she had been busy in the kitchen making jam


It is absolutely scrummy, especially on toast with a lovely cuppa!


Thank you Mum!

  5. That shawl will be done before you know it but yes...those rows do get larger as you go. And the scarf has beautiful colors almost as yummy as that jam looks. :-)

  9. Victoria, think 'process, enjoy the process' and it won't seem like a long, long journey finisheing your lovely shawl!

    I'm 'off' sugary stuff at the moment...but, my, that jam looks good. Somehting about a jar of homemade that even the most expensive bought jam just can't beat.
