It’s been a bit of a rough time around here, so I haven’t been crocheting as much as I normally would. My daughter developed anxiety about a month ago, and the last week or so has been pretty hard for us. She gave me a bit of a fright with it, as she’s only nine, but we’ve been working through it and I’m looking into getting her to see a therapist or psychologist. Things seem to be better now we’ve sorted out some of the things that were bothering her. I know it’s something that may always be there, but for now, things are getting better. Baby steps, but we’re moving forward.
Onto Riker! Since he’s Number One, he seemed like the obvious choice to make after the Captain. His beard was a little annoying, but with some careful weaving in trickery, it works out. I might tweak his a little bit more, but not tonight. It’s been a busy day and I’m ready to sit back and crochet for a bit. Home all day and I haven’t picked up a hook at all, and it’s now almost 8:30pm!
I’ve included the blue and white backgrounds again, along with PDFs for both, but I think laziness might creep in and I’ll only include the version I’m doing at that time. I might do both, but I guess it’ll depend on how things go. My daughter is having an operation soon, so I’ll be home with her while she recovers, so we’ll see how I feel. I’m hoping to churn out a few more panels of this and my Outlander blanket Version 2.
Once the kid gets to bed I’ll be able to crochet as I catch up with Game of Thrones and a bit more of Orange is the New Black, snuggled up under my Doctor Who blanket. It’s a chilly night, and that sounds like a perfect night to me.
Next up will be Dr. Beverly Crusher!
