Well, here I am back again, a Friday evening blogging and the week has disappeared again! As the title suggests - it has been a Wibbly Wobbly Week for me. I mentioned in my last post about youngest Kimbles heading off to the USA on a dream trip - so this week has been "Mum - have you seen my Ipod cable", "Mum have you seen that T Shirt - you know, the one I mean", and finally "Mum, I thought I could print off my air ticket - but we have to dash to the Travel Agents to collect it" Then there was the checking and double checking of the itinerary and so on. This culminated in "The Farewell" and "The Farewell" was at the crack of dawn at Terminal 4 Heathrow on Thursday morning - don't you just hate farewells - I had given myself a good talking to - he is going on holiday, he has saved for a year, its his dream. I know, I know, I know - but you know that awful choking in the throat when trying to say goodbye and not cry........... after the deed was done myself a Little Kimbles who had accompanied me needed a strong coffee!
So all day yesterday I was Wobbly thinking about the very looooong flight, the transfer and another flight after that - then the waiting for the call to say " Im here mum" Well I waited for quite a long time and to add to it all Mr K was flying home from Aberdeen and he was delayed so
I sat by the computer watching programmes on iplayer and waited for the Skype call. Of course to keep occupied I tried some crochet. I am really loving the pattern that Kate The Garden Bell is doing at the moment there is a link to the pattern on her blog.
I like it because it has "texture". I played about with a view to making it into a sort of flowerish square
Oh, to finish the travel story - I got the Skype call at 1.45 am this morning but I could hear youngest Kimbles but he couldn't hear me! but at least I know he is ok and my Wibble Wobbles are calming down a little. Mr K didn't arrive back until 2.15 so by the time I had given him the update we didn't get to bed until 2.45am.
After this square I made another experiment using the lovely colours of the Rico cotton which I ordered as a result of Lucy
I changed the outside edge, and I quite like using the one colour in the middle -seems to make the textured "spokes" stand out - don't know if you agree. It was quite frustratingly "splitty" to use and I don't think there is enough for a blanket but I do like the pattern.
Well I am pooped! after two nights with not enough sleep - I think an early one is in order! I will try to post from the "field" next week as we will be camping some of the time - I really like the thought of posting from the field - although it didn't work last time I tried - so here is hoping for wifi!
Oh, I'm so tired I nearly forgot - I have guest posted on the SIBOL Archive about one of the squares I made for this worthy project - if by any small chance you haven't heard about the lovely Mrs Twins and the SIBOL project please check it out here.
Speak soon xx
