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
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’m very pleased to be able to tell you that my Kanata Kerchief Tank Top is finished! Actually, I finished it a couple of days ago. I took photos yesterday morning, planning to do this post then, but that obviously didn’t happen. Today is Thursday April 9th, the first day of week three of our… Continue reading Tank Top Is Finished
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
So it’s one down and three more to go for my Kanata Kerchief Tank top. I have made a start on the second square and it is progressing nicely. This is a straight forward pattern with enough variation to keep it interesting. It grows at an encouraging rate too, due to the slightly larger than… Continue reading One Down
I decided to start something different this week. Not much progress has been made on my socks because I have been too tired in the evenings to focus on finer yarn. I had a full week relieving at the daycare centre down the road. The first two days were in toddlers, and the last three… Continue reading Something Different
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!
I have finished my first dishcloth. It was supposed to just be a trial run, but it has turned out really well. I used one of the patterns I found on Ravelry, a crochet one called “Spread the Dishcloth Joy”. The pattern is simple and quick to complete. It has a slightly rough texture which… Continue reading My First Dishcloth
Oh My Goodness! Holiday Ornaments Galore by Ursula Michael is absolutely gorgeous! I could quite happily sit down and stitch almost every single pattern right now. Holiday Ornaments Galore starts off with a brief introduction of the author, Ursula Michael. This is followed by a couple of pages of General Instructions and Technique Tips. These… Continue reading Holiday Ornaments Galore
