They should have come yesterday, but they never did. My heart was full of anticipation, full of excitement, and yet I was let down. Oh the misery!
Okay, enough of the drama haha! The internet guys promised that my internet would be installed yesterday. I waited all day, cancelling all my plans for the day and yet nobody came.I've been yearning for faster internet for months now. The intermittent signal of Globe's pocket wi-fi just won't do it for me. I miss downloading the latest episodes of my favorite TV shows, watching YouTube videos without buffering, fast uploads on my blog... the list is endless. Oh well, such is life...
Today, instead of stressing over it and wasting my time again waiting, I decided to finally work on one of my WIPs posted here. The sea-green mesh shawl/scarf.
The yarn I used for this shawl was a gift from Kimmy Maclang of Yarn Source Manila. She gave me a humongous cake of yarn, approximately 600grams. The two strands are unplied and very thin. So I decided to 'double" the thickness by combining both ends. However, the ball was so tightly wound I was having a hard time finding the center end.
In the end, I decided to rewind the whole thing into smaller workable cakes. I didn't mind because working with my yarn winder is always a joy for me. It is my second favorite crochet toy, after my hooks.
Now, I have smaller cakes of this pretty yarn and am ready to continue working on my shawl. Since it is very thin, I decided to use a 3.0mm (5/0 Japanese) hook. The resulting fabric is soft and airy.
It's gloomy outside, with occasional drizzle, so I decided to stay home and curl up in bed and crochet the day away.
Me, in bed. ( indulging in crochet selfie, hehe.)
Til next time, crochet friends!
