I haven’t done any knitting since March so I’m glad to get back to it…
Painted my kitchen and made my Christmas cake (no photos yet), and done some of each of these projects:
Resisted this Skein Queen with all my might:
Bought some sparkly buttons:
And a little bit of Rowan Handknit cotton to make a doily to match this mug:
Mollie was not impressed to have Lucy’s feet on her!
And Mollie has been happier tonight in her Thundershirt.
Though less impressed when I declined to share my chocolate!
I’ve been staying at my Mum’s looking after her dog Lucy. Lucy is a handful!
On Saturday I worked on the Mustardseed shawl for the shawl swap:
While my sister made pompom alliums as decorations for her 40th birthday party in August!
There five pom-poms there and one real allium!
Lucy got herself VERY wet in her paddling pool:
Today I did a couple of rows of the shawl before turning to sewing the ends in on the crochet blanket for my step-granddaughter. And here it is in all its glory:
And then I turned to the blanket I’m making for my sister as a gift for that big birthday…
I think Lucy has enjoyed her weekend… Mollie did too! Even if she has a less enthusiastic way of showing it!
Mollie and I had a quick visit with lovely Janet at Marmalade Yarns on our way home from work today…
Mollie admiring some Noro…
I bought nothing! I am trying to be well behaved.
This evening after the excitement of a very large posterboard being erected in my garden (it’s probably an involved-in-politics thing, like election fever!) I knitted the body of my knitted elephant!
I think I’m going to change her eyes from brown to black, I just don’t like them brown (they look red here).
KAL post will be up Wednesday at 9am.
