Slight Delay

I experienced a slight delay getting started with my socks. In my last post, “Getting There – Slowly”, I mentioned that I had everything together to get started. It was actually too late for me to start when I finished on the computer that night so I got everything out the next evening. It was… Continue reading Slight Delay

Getting There – Slowly!

There seems to be a lot to get done and catch up on, but I think I am getting there – slowly. The big news is that I have finished the second coffee cozy, the one I actually started first. (See “Production Line” for a photo of the first one finished.) I have taken photos… Continue reading Getting There – Slowly!

Farewell To 2019

As we prepare to say farewell to 2019, it’s time to do a little reflecting. Actually, I’ve been doing quite a lot of reflecting, particularly over the last couple of days. The end of the year now has a number of significant anniversaries for our family. I know it is probably the same for a… Continue reading Farewell To 2019

Last Batches

I have finally finished my last batches for Christmas. Yesterday, Monday, I made my final three dozen Christmas mince pies. Altogether I have now made nine dozen this year. The previous ones have all gone, mostly to a variety of Christmas functions, although some we enjoyed at home. I also made a small batch of… Continue reading Last Batches

Production Line

I feel like I’ve started a bit of a production line for dishcloths / washcloths. The photo above was taken yesterday morning before they were wrapped up as part of two separate parcels and posted away. Since then I have finished another one and started on the next. You should be able to count eight… Continue reading Production Line

The ones that need to be posted to Melbourne are finished, which is a relief. They can be posted on Monday. In the photo at the top you can see the five… Continue reading Dishcloths Galore

The Last Pair

The last pair of fingerless mitts is finished. Actually, I finished sewing them up on Tuesday night and now it is Saturday afternoon! Time is just flying by at the moment. The colour is a bit washed out in this photo. They are quite a bright blue with a fleck in them. I had a… Continue reading The Last Pair

Neonatal Knitting Delivered

My neonatal knitting was delivered this week. I took the two singlets and a little grey cardigan around on Wednesday night. I hadn’t quite finished the little aqua coloured cardigan, so I delivered that on Thursday night. One task ticked off my list! I was very happy to get these garments finished on time, but… Continue reading Neonatal Knitting Delivered

Night Shelter Knitting

My night shelter knitting is nearly done. I actually took a photo nearly two weeks ago to do this post but life has been a bit overwhelming lately. In the previous photo the mitts were not finished, so this will probably give you a better idea anyway. I have been knitting to contribute to an… Continue reading Night Shelter Knitting

Good Intentions

I was so full of good intentions for the school holidays. However, not only have those two weeks gone by, but it is now Saturday afternoon following the first week back at school! To be fair, I did actually get a lot done. The problem is that I didn’t spend much time at all catching… Continue reading Good Intentions
