An ode to Black Sheep Wools

I’m not sure many people will get this. But there’s a song that I *love* by Robbie Williams and everytime I listen to it I have my yarn shop version that I came up with about a year ago, I can’t actually sing the proper lyrics anymore.

I told my yarn shop version to Gruncle Chris and he said it was pretty good. So I’ve decided to share it with you.

The song that it ‘goes’ to is Good Doctor but I will warn you it’s Nsfw and has swearing in so not infront of the kids!!

My version goes…

I went to the yarn shop to get a good fix in,
I told them little fact, and lots of fiction,
About a project that I ain’t got,
Tried to sell me a cross stitch kit, I think not!
I want Rowan, Sublime, Rico Cotton.
Funky ring them up, so I can knot them.
I’ve got all these wips and I can’t stop em,
To tell you the truth shop, I might have a problem!!

That’s it.
Doesn’t look as impressive as it sounds in my head, but I want to thank The Black Sheep Craft Barn in Culcheth for being the place where I started singing this to myself.
Now whenever the song plays on my ipod it makes me want to crochet!

Lazy days

Calling to you!!

Sorry to start with a random Robbie Williams lyric but it’s been stuck in my head since I decided lazy days should be the title earlier today!

Mr. B has been off of work for a couple of days. Which naturally means that one of the boys is going to get poorly. Which of course happened!
Little H woke up on Wednesday night and was sick.  So the last 3 days have been spent having lots of cuddles and all of us feeling pretty sleepy.
I had joked earlier in the week that as it’s Mr.  B’s birthday next week that we should plan something for this week. (Because last year it was as we were getting ready to go for a birthday lunch that Little H was sick!) And touch wood he should be ok by the time it actually is Mr. B’s birthday!

Anyway, I digress!
Not much crocheting has been done as you can imagine. Last night I did manage to finish my Frayed Knot perfect cowl. I only had to sew in afew ends and construct & attatch the flower. After that I did a row or two of the little blanket I’m making for a friend who’s collecting them for her local neonatal unit. Then I realised I was really tired and called it a night.

Today when I got up I spent some time playing with the boys and after lunch Mr. B told me he thought I should go upstairs and relax with my crocheting. You don’t have to tell me twice! (I think it was a ploy so he could watch football!)

I did a bit more of the neonatal blanket, and then switched to the pastel coloured granmy stripe for a bit and then went and had a lovely hot bath and started reading Game of Thrones which I’m really liking!

So aside from the poorly toddler we’ve had a chilled couple of days. :)

I shall leave you with a picture.
