For those of you who read Mother_figure’s last comment, you may now be in a state of confusion. Mother_figure is at least.
Some clarifying points:
(Speaking of points – my latest Round Ripple is progressing:
Firstly, the SMB is Centime, the apricot/cream DSH, a present for my sister for Christmas 4 years ago.
She has a thing about the dustpan and brush. She likes you to sweep her…..
It’s ok.. the other cat likes to sleep on her back…
Nothing wrong in my family.
Secondly, My mother has decided to crochet, for a Small Person, an Eeyore.
Thirdly, it is important to note that Mother_figure, despite her encouragement of my own hookwork, has not crocheted anything since she made ponchos for us three girls in 1981.
You do the math.
My mother, is not, a hooker.
(and that should be good for a few Google search hits!)
However, you have to admire her sense of adventure.
We have discussed at length her choice of materials (NOT the yarn that the LYS sold you… use the stuff I sent you!!!) (And the hook in the bag!!) and where to start (the tail, just go round and round… until you’re confident on how to do a single crochet) and stitch markers, use thereof.
So far, she reports 1.5 ears.
Plus one the cat has eaten.
Which leads me to beg the question : how small do you think the Small Person that this Eeyore is intended for will be, when Eeyore is finished???
I’m going home in a week. I think there’s an Eeyore workshop ahead of me.
Yes, after six weeks of being in, and a particularly nasty incident today (6’3″ of supervisor shouting charming things at me…) I’m going home for a week.
Coming back.. that’s a topic of discussion for tomorrow when the owner of my company arrives.
I don’t hate the place, but some of the people … I need some distance at present.
But now, it’s late, there’s mohair fluff in my bed, and I’m going to sleep.
Hugs to you all!
