|another lovely sample|
I have had quite a productive week, I did (eventually) get the elastic threaded through all of the 46 pairs of shorts for the Dress A Child Charity. They are now all ready to be handed over. I think it may have taken as long to thread them as did actually make them!!!
I didn't get the cardigan finished for Little Miss before we went to visit - I did try but it takes longer to finish off than you think doesn't it?
Anyway, that's done now, posted off and received, and it fits - Yay!
|Love a bit of white knitting!|
After she passed, I had put all of her stash of yarn in my loft because I just didn't know what to do with it. A couple of years ago, a good friend had started to make socks for a camping trip and I gifted her a rather large bag of lovely sock yarn, because I was NEVER going to make a pair of socks - I just didn't have the time !
Anyway, said friend used all of the bag including all the leftover bits. Which is good. But now I have more time I have started doing a bit more knitting and am learning to crochet too, so I am now purchasing some of the same yarns that I gave away! "C'est La Vie "
This is my first pair of socks, and we will see how they go.

February's Mini is Pineapple Log Cabin and we are using this tutorial from Little Mushroom Cap. All printed out ready - and you can join us too
|all printed out onto tracing paper|
One of our members has worked out how many pieces per block.
I may be re-thinking the number that I make..........
AND..... We have cleared out the garage - Hubby had a fit, but did as I asked and now there is empty floorspace and tools put where they should be.
HeHeHe! He won't be asking me for assistance again in a hurry!!
AND ---- Just how hard is it to decide on a paint colour for our hallway!!!
We have picked one and I do like it, but not sure about the look of the room. 1960's hospital comes to mind..........
Might just go back to "beige"
