Since I have finished my last crochet project, I was at a loose end and not sure what I wanted to do next.
This magazine subscription has been advertised on TV and decided to check it out. The reason being, I want to learn new stitches and struggle to find time for classes etc
I like the idea of learning a new pattern each week and decided I could keep up with crocheting one new square per week to make this afgan.
Plus the magazine supplies the wool with each issue.
At the newsagency I purchase the only available first issues, second issue for a grand total of $7.90 which included 1 x DVD, 1 x hook, 1 x A4 binder, 2 x magazine and 3 x balls of wool.
Yes I know how to find a bargain.
At home I had a closer look at the small print and the website which goes onto further explain that from week / issue 3 each will now cost $7.95 for next 117 weeks.
For the bargain basement price of $938.05 you too can crochet the below afghan. I am still not sure if I can commit to making it because 120 weeks is a long term relationship for me and I’m getting all twitchy just thinking about it.
As a single gal, commitment and I don’t see eye to eye.
I break out in a cold sweat and start stammering when the word comes up in conversation.
Each evening when I sit down to crochet there is normally a cup of tea and biscuit or two consumed
My last blanket was 110 squares and that equates to over 100 cups of tea and possibly 200 biscuits. Wow now I understand why I have love handles.
With this new blanket I am going to restrict my biscuit intake to only 1 per cup of tea. I hope that doesn’t mean I will be drinking more tea, so I can eat an extra biccy.
It was like that time in my life I smoked cigarette only when I drank alcohol, so I started drinking more alcohol so I could smoke. Crazy huh.
98% of the biscuits consumed in my house are homemade and at least one of the ingredients is chocolate, like the ones I posted about here
My weakness in store brought biscuits is Arnotts Kingstons and now I have a recepe to make my own, which I found here.
From now on I will keep posting about my crochet-square-per-week and confess how many biscuits were consumed in the making. Hopefully the guilt will hold me back from cheating and eating more than one.
Does eating cookie dough count?
