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
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
It’s been a while but I’m knitting pink baby clothes again. My niece’s new daughter is over two weeks old already, having been born over three weeks early, but I’m hoping to get a few things knitted quickly enough that she won’t out grow them too soon. I’ve chosen a set from a book I’ve… Continue reading In The Pink Again
I’m so pleased to have finished the cardigan for my granddaughter! I actually finished it a few days ago, on Saturday, but have not had a chance to do a post until now. The cardigan has been delivered, and was very happily received. She tried it on straight away and it fits really well. Job… Continue reading It’s Finished!
As you can see, I’ve finished my little cross stitch, so that's one down of my many projects. I actually finished it on Saturday evening, but needed to get organised to get a photo taken. I still need to find a frame for it. This project was small and straight forward, and I found it… Continue reading One Down, Still Many To Go!
I was so excited that both my Octopals were accepted (see my comment on “On Their Way!”) and have now started another octopus. I’m going to stick with this pattern to start off with and return to the jellyfish a bit later. I found crocheting my Octopals a bit hard on my hands. To give… Continue reading From Christmas To Birthdays And Other Things
I have the first batch of baby knitting ready to go. (See “The Singlets Have Been Started”.) To be honest, it has been ready for a few weeks but there have been a few communication delays in my attempts to get them delivered to the lady running the Neonatal Unit project. Hopefully I will get… Continue reading The First Batch Of Baby Knitting
