Three months has gone by since the unpleasant incident that I had distributing my RAOC's (random acts of crochet kindness) which you can read about here . I thought it was time to try again.
I dug into my RAOCK stash to take two RAOCKs with me on my walk last Thursday along the ROAD.
This time I placed the flower and the butterfly in eco-friendly plastic bags and also stuck a label on each bag indicating the date that each RAOCK was placed in the bags. I hope this will do the trick and people will pick them up.
I walk just before lunchtime so there are not a lot of people around where I go. I left one on a bench near the beginning of my walk and the other at the end of it. I crossed the road and returned along the other side where I could watch those benches inconspicuously as possible. Nobody had picked them up
I took the same route the following day for my walk and I checked out the benches and the RAOCKs had gone.
|I Hope they did produce smiles!|

😊Leggings users unite:
This is a fun invitation to all leggings users:
If you are a leggings user I invite you to show your solidarity with my blogfriend Meredith at Mereknits who commented on her last post "I am obsessed with leggings or yoga pants. I know I am very late to this trend. ... I am not in the shape to wear them... "
Can you show Meredith she is not alone in her eagerness to wear leggings and that it is indeed still the trend, by posting a fun snapshot of your leggings! You don't have to be wearing them if you don't like that idea you can take a photo of them hanging on the line if you like and give a mention on your next post please and also you could comment why you wear them.

|I wear Leggings for walking !|
|I wear my old leggings indoors|
the past ,for casual wear, I used to practically live in jeans but I adapted with
the times and fashion to leggings. I wear leggings even more now since I have retired and
do not have to respect a conservative dress code for work. Leggings are
one of the most comfortable items of clothing I have ever had and can be
even urban smart if combined with the right sort of clothing. My one
restriction is that I only purchase leggings in discreet dark colours. I leave
the bold bright psychedelic colours to the younger generation or those
with slim mid-body contours who are happy to proclaim their attractive
slimness wrapped in those vivid colours.
Do you see my socks (pic 1.)? I love snazzy coloured socks, the brighter the better! I call them my protest socks...a personal shout out showing a little bit of the rebellious me. I think after yarn,snazzy coloured socks are also one of my addictive buys.
A new RAOCK.
My second make in my Fey Flowers collection.
Hook 3.5 Yarn: a mix from the leftovers basket mostly Double Knit. A little fibrefill. Red Embroidery cotton. Silver Antennae x 2.
Pattern : 5 multi layer flower. Japanese Author unknown. The leaves,edgings and face free-form.
What would I change? Go back to using cotton instead of yarn for the face!
