I finally finished the mitts to send to Miss 22 that match her hat she got in December.
I love knitting in Fishermen's Rib. I'm going to write what I'm writing then add in the photos later because on the iPad, once you add photos it gets really jumpy and difficult to manage on the dashboard. BRING BACK THE APP BLOGGER, it's one reason I don't blog as much.
I've seen friends, I've caught up with TV - Walking Dead's season finale was very disappointing. I've faffed about in the craft room.
I'm quite pleased with the zigzags here. It's not perfect and while I'm not blaming my tools per se, the three fabrics are different weights, but they were just scraps that I'd been given and the shiny blue one frays like a right swine. I'm just quilting it with parallel stitching. I've made mistakes and learned from them. But it will be turned into a cushion cover I think. I was going to be a big but it's a bit big, but then it could just be a craft bag for myself. Who knows?
I dug out another unfinished WIP and am thinking now I'm going to have to pull it out because I won't have enough wool left to finish it. I've done one sleeve and there's not enough for the other one
and the finishing. To be honest I did just pull it from my stash and knit it with a wish. It was a scarf knit kit thingy. No matter. It'll make a sparkly hat for my friend's little girl.
These jeans are going to become baby dungarees.
How cute is this braiding I bought...
It might embellish the dungarees.
Do any of my readers speak Russian? I saw this on Facebook and I'd love to knit it.
Finally a lovely photo of Freddie for you!
Photo taken by Miss 22. I think it's great! Countryfile calendar standard!
Going now to get a shower to get ready for today - it might involve a Hobbycraft visit.......
Lots of love from
