Crochet therapy

The end of a stressful day of tantrumming toddler twinnage.

The rainbow stained glass window is progressing well, assisted by a two-hour bout of insomnia last night. Can you see the little popcorn stitches? I’ve reached about 60cm diameter (24 inches), and the final thing will be about 2 metres (>2 yards) across. I love this pattern! It’s by Julene Watson, and the increases and pattern are perfectly calculated so that it remains beautifully flat as it grows.

And it’s cheaper than therapy. :-)

IN OTHER NEWS:-

Continuing my occasional series of knitted motifs spotted out and about, here’s where wine meets fairisle. :-)

Fairisle wine. :-)

Fairisle wine. :-)

Most definitely not a wine that I’d choose, but not bad for a combination of concepts.
