It may sound strange, but I am actually missing lockdown. Obviously the reason for having it is not a good one, and it’s good to be able to go out when I want to, but I really enjoyed being at home. We have been at Level 2 for two and a half weeks now and… Continue reading Missing Lockdown
I finally ventured out yesterday in search of buttons for the two little baby garments I finished a while ago. This proved to be a bit of an adventure, as I had suspected it would. The only shop locally where you can get a big selection of button now is a sort of discount store.… Continue reading Buttons!
I’ve decided it’s finally challenge time. Over ten years ago I bought three 100g hanks of some beautiful yarn with only a vague idea of what I might make. It has been hanging out in my stash ever since. I think this was the first time that I bought yarn on impulse. Previously I really… Continue reading Challenge Time!
After all the dishcloths I made for other people at Christmas time, I’ve finally made one for me. I am planning to make some more for myself, but this first one was just using up an odd scrap that I had been given. It is a bit heavier weight than the cotton I’ve bought, and… Continue reading One For Me
I am really hoping that it is third time lucky for the little baby jumper. You will recall that my first attempt at a “pretty little girl’s jumper” was a bit of a failure. (See “A Waste Of Time”.) Well, I chose some 4 ply Naturally Loyal Baby Prints for my second attempt. The pink… Continue reading Third Time Lucky?
I have been working on my “Hermione’s Everyday Socks” and some other things over the last few days. The first sock is finished and I have cast on the second. It feels good to be making a bit of progress. I had such plans for getting lots of projects done during lockdown, but it has… Continue reading Socks And Some Other Things
Well that turned out to be a waste of time! In my last post I mentioned that I had a pattern and some pink wool picked out to do a “pretty” jumper to go with the neutral cardigan I’ve already made. (See “Day Two, Week Two”.) I was feeling inspired so I jumped right in… Continue reading A Waste Of Time
The decision was made on Saturday night. I decided to go with the round neck version of the cardigan. The colour is a pale, slightly greenish blue, which is suitable for either a girl or a boy. I decided to take a risk and put the buttonholes on the right hand side as well, thus… Continue reading Decision Was Made!
I thought I would share some of my achievements so far as we come to the end of day three of our lockdown. There was a surprise addition to my project list on Wednesday night. My eldest granddaughter texted me before she went to bed to ask me to finish her gloves for her. She… Continue reading Achievements So Far
It has been happening in fits and starts, but I have made a bit of progress with some of my projects. Unfortunately my time available is rather intermittent at the moment, so I am not as far ahead as I would like to be. I now have three of the four squares done for my… Continue reading Progress
