Another crochet project completed
As I think I've mentioned here before, until a few weeks ago, I thought I was more or less retired and had started lots of crochet projects to keep myself occupied. I then uttered the fateful words, (in relation to clearing and decorating Dad's bungalow so we can put it on the market), "I'm not working now. I don't have anything particular to do. I can take it on as my project."

Unfortunately for all my free time, the universe was listening and totally out of the blue, found a teaching job for me. Though it's part-time, with just 10 hours of teaching a week, because I haven't taught any of the courses before, it's taking hours each week to get up to speed with the topics, prepare lesson plans and prepare presentations and handouts. I was determined not to abandon the crochet, however, because I find it very soothing, though obviously progress slowed right down and I've had to re-think all the things I wanted to make for Christmas presents. I will still make them, but I'll forget about deadlines and do them as random gifts throughout the year instead.

Anyway, here is the latest completed project, which is a lap blanket for my Dad.

Ooooh, that looks very dense and warm, and the colors are strong yet not flashy, which I'm sure he'll appreciate. Male birds tend to be so bright and gorgeous, but men? Not usually so much. *g*

Thanks. It is a nice stitch for a blanket. In fact I'm going to start one for me, but in pink. :)

That is beautiful! I hope you like working it sounds hard to start up those classes from scratch.
