I am going to make a blanket with no time constraint or pressure, just pure hooky fun when I am there. The pattern is from a USA book my friend bought me from Aldi about 6 months ago.
It makes a lacy throw, or I may just hang it on the wall to kill a bit of the pine colour.
The reason I can do this is because my clever bloke has set up a 12V battery linked to a solar panel so we have more than candlelight in the evenings.
Plenty for me to crochet and bloke to read.
We still lit one of our homemade candles though.
We woke this morning to rain so we were glad we did our harvesting yesterday. We have had a steady stream of fruit and veg every couple of days for about 8 weeks now.
...but it is wet and windy here today so we are sewing, ironing and crafting away the day. Jo xx
