Crafting wise this week has been close to a right off for me. At the start of the week I basically slept. I’ve been gradually getting more and more exhausted over the last few months but I needed to keep going. Finally I could kick back, turn the alarm clock off and just relax.
By Tuesday I was starting have more energy, deciding to head out to take a few shots around sunset for my photography ‘Ghost Project’ and that’s where things started to go wrong. I was eaten alive by bugs, covered and I mean covered in bites. Annoying as this was I just resolved not to scratch and forget about them. That didn’t work. Soon I started swelling and before long I had lumps expanding all over my body and a splitting headache. You know the bites are bad when even the pharmacist sucks air through his teeth and goes eek.
Now normally this would be a good excuse to settle down on the sofa and knit. Except my left hand was badly swollen making knitting uncomfortable. So as a result not a lot of crafting has gone on this week. Fortunately the swelling is now going down and I’m starting to feel human again thanks to steroids and antihistamines.
So all I have to show you this week is a small amount of crochet. Yup, crochet! Remember I blogged that I’d made a little travel pouch for one of my smaller lenses? We I decided that crocheted pouches might be an interesting alternative. Here are a couple of snaps of my progress off my mobile phone.
