TENSION is all Around

Tensions are starting to build as we look to the summer of sport throughout the world. Some of the big sporting events only interest certain people in certain areas. Take for example  Euro 2016. Although there will be some interest from outside Europe there will be more interest in Europe. Tensions will be growing between people from different county’s supporting different teams.

BUNTING 2

As for the tension on crocheting work it’s a different ball game! Get it wrong and there will be lots of frogging (a bad word in our house) as I am the one who has to wind the yarn up! How about you? Do you have problems with your tension? If you are doing your own thing does it matter that much? I do not think it does (I could be wrong, I will see what the wife says).

I have seen and heard of people being driven to distraction on certain patterns and I know it can make a big difference. The wife showed me two triangles she had crocheted at different tensions and there was a centimeter difference in them. So if it happens on a blanket/afghan a single size blanket could go to a double blanket no problem.

FINISHED TRIANGLE

Tensions will also be mounting for the Olympics. Will records be broken? Who will win the most gold medals? Are you going to get the flags and bunting out and join in supporting your favourite team or sports person and scream encouragement at the tv (we are all good at that). I do it to the point that I have made people jump! And now this year I have my own bunting to wave, which the wife made for the Euro 16. The pattern she wrote will show you how easy it is to make and she made it in 3 days – still time to make for the Kick off.
