The Dark Side

I spent a very enjoyable weekend at Rowan on a crochet workshop. Much fun was had & apart from being late as I got hopelessly lost (and very stressed) it was a lovely relaxing time. A couple of small projects were undertaken:

The fawn colour was quite plain so I added two rows of a beautiful chocolate brown which i think just lifted it a bit:

I'm considering filling it with lovely things & giving it to my SIL for her birthday next month but then again it might stay here:

and still in progress a curly scarf:

I haven't made one of these for ages but the colours in the yarn are so subtle & I'm really enjoying using it. I've never had the chance to squidge this before as I don't have a local Rowan stockist & I love it. Then to edge it a ball of Kidsilk Spray, or Kidsilk Crack as Susoolu calls it, to finish it off:

Arianwen & I shared a room in a local hotel but didn't get much sleep thanks to an over enthusiastic DJ celebrating an 80th birthday party downstairs. Then my rather loud phone woke us up with a text from DH at 6:20 a.m. informing me that the dogs aren't ever going to have a raw bone again, as they'd both been rather ill during the night & he'd had a lot of cleaning up to do I think I had the better weekend don't you!
