Blimey O’Reilly….

I swear, some days, I must have ADD.  I seem to have a total inability to finish what I’m doing before finishing another project!  Every time I go near Ravelry, or the yarn shop, I start something new…

So now I have not 1, but 2 Rondo bags, in different colours.  I do enjoy making them, and when my Mother asked if I’d like to make some charitable contributions to her women’s club for sale, it’s the first thing I thought of.  Plus, I have a stash of yarn I bought years ago and have never managed to find the right project for, until now.  I have 10 balls of 5-ply ribbon yarn which is perfect for these bags, and quite frankly I’ll be glad to see the back of it.

I’ve also managed to start a project for my God-daughter (also my cousin) – she decided she wanted a mermaid tail lap blanket, so last week I bought the yarn and started.  She doesn’t know I’m making it, so it will be a nice surprise.  The thing is, I’ll really need to buckle down and get on with it, I have this and 1 other project that have a deadline looming – 2 blankets to be completed and blocked before 7th May.  I have no idea how I’m going to do it.  It’s time like this I’m kinda glad I’m not working right now, but Crocheting all day is difficult.  I just can’t sit still for that long 🙂

There are still 3 other projects on the go, they’ll just have to hibernate for now…
