It's been an absolute age since I last did an update for the Year of Projects! Pretty much because I haven't been doing any knitting or crochet since before we moved house several weeks ago, and even when I have, my current WIPs haven't been from my list of stash yarn.
However, I have made something this week which qualifies! As I said earlier in the week I needed simple projects to get me back in the groove.
Meet the newest addition to my 'nest'. This storage box has been haunting my house for years, always shoved in a corner, filled with useless crap. I've emptied it out, and crocheted a cover for it to match the sofa bed afghan I made last year.
I pretty much just winged it after I got to the last row of the afghan motif. I added an extra row of black, then switched back to purple for the sides. The last two rows and the chain that holds it in place I did in brown.
As I said, I was kind of making it up as I went, so the attaching it to the lid part was a bit sloppy, but I figure nobody will see that part really.
I'm not sure what I'm going to use it for, so for now I have put it next to my sofa. I might store my needles in it. Or just fill it full of yarn. Secret yarn...
In other news, we have finally started letting Fidget out without his harness and lead. He's been very good, and although he's been off over the fence exploring the neighbouring gardens, he's not stayed out too long and has come back when called every time. He's getting used to coming and going through the window and not the door, and seems an awful lot happier for it. As it's a long weekend this weekend, I'm taking advantage of the fact that I'm home all day today and tomorrow to leave the window open and just let him come and go when he pleases, as I want him to be completed comfortable before we swan off to get married on Saturday and abandon him for two weeks while we fly to America.
