Nayu's Craft Time #48 Craft is sociable

Nowhere I've been, sadly.
While craft is often done by someone on their own, it doesn't mean they have to do it in the middle of the woods with no one but bunnies, squirrels, and other cute creatures for company. (We can ignore all the creepy crawlies and less friendly creatures). 

Which is why yesterday I spent several hours with a friend, chatting away while we crafted together. I worked on more rainbow fingerless gloves like these. 

My friend worked on a small pansy tapestry. 
Pansies look like this
We didn't sit in silence, we chatted the entire time we worked with yarn and thread, for an entire 3 hours without stopping. I stayed a bit longer after lunch, then went home. 
Take 1 girl away, set it in a home, nix the pig-tails and uniform, swap the knitting for crochet & sewing to get me and my friend having fun ^o^
It was a super fun day for both of us! The great news is that we intend to do this on a semi-regular basis, hopefully every 2 weeks, although it's dependent on how well I feel at the time (today was rescheduled from last Friday). 

Today I've been working on squares for a new baby blanket - I can get 6 from 1 ball of yarn, which since I have 10 balls is plenty big enough. I'm not joining them together until the end, when I'll use join as you go method once I outline the squares in white or cream yarn. Carrying on with ball #2 tonight!
6 made, another 54 to go!
