Inspired by some of the "crimes against the #fibreArts" images from @carriecraftgeek 's Livemas 3 today, I present:

Next on "ADHD or Fae": I used my car keys to move our boxes over here, but somehow my keys are in the bottom of this packed box. #how #adhdtwitter #adhd #adhdproblems #fae #moving #boyfriend #fairies
Next on "ADHD or Fae": We own 10 nail clippers. I certainly didn't buy them. No one knows how they got here. #adhdtwitter #adhd #fae #boyfriend #adhdorfae

After nearly 5 months, 14 balls of wool, and quite a lot of swearing, I am delighted to say that my Persian Tiles - Eastern Jewels blanket is complete! #crochet 💕 ImageImageImage
Things I have learned:
Weave in as you go along, do NOT wait till the end.
Leave longer ends to weave in, I had plenty of wool, I didn’t need to scrimp.
Catch mistakes early and use more stitch markers.
Blocking works.
Have faith!
I am unbelievably proud of this. I have always thought I was rubbish at crafts and I’ve proved that you can take up a hobby in your mid 40s and actually be good at it!

The Sleep Blanket

A visualization of my son's sleep pattern from birth to his first birthday. Crochet border surrounding a double knit body. Each row represents a single day. Each stitch represents 6 minutes of time spent awake or asleep #knitting #crochet #datavisualization
The original plan was to crochet the entire blanket but I switched to double knitting because the data was much more clearly visualized and the color changes (of which there were literally thousands) were significantly easier
The body is made of four vertical panels seamed together. The seams are slightly less aesthetically pleasing but breaking it up made it more portable, easier to fix mistakes, and easier track progress

Crocheting in style at @theshelbourne, #crochet
