I just cant seem to get my mind focused onto getting on with things, And I have MANY things that I want to get on with.
So we have been doing (too much) of this
I got Mr T (who has been told not to play golf for a while)
to use my new yarn winder to cake up some of the carpet yarn that on of the Crochet girls had acquired
|he is so patient with me|
I have had an idea to use some of this, and it does seem to be working- but I will show more of that later.
A friend popped round with these lovely Tulips. Love them!
I did finish my Waiting For Rain shawl, and am very pleased with how it turned out. When I saw these colours, I immediately thought of my DIL, and when we met up for (another) lunch, I showed it to her. She loved tt so it now has a new home, and I am looking for some soft grey yarn to make one for me
It's a lovely shawl to knit , I used the alternative bind off and it took HOURS to complete, but I am so glad that I did.
Back in February I had cast on my first ever pair of socks, I knit them two at a time, and got to the heel turn quite quickly. I have avoided going any further since then, but this week, I have pulled up my big girls panties and have now finished them!
|and they fit me too!|
Not sure I will actually wear them, as I certainly don't need anything to keep me warm! But they are actually quite easy to do with not too much to think about
And so to this months Mini Mania Challenge.
Get on with it!!!
So I did
all it took was and evening of cutting out and sewing
And it's done!!!
I remembered seeing this (or a similar )layout ages ago and for once I could recall the image
Now onto May!!!
We are off to the seaside for a couple of days so I hope that the sun shines, though I have an idea that someone wants some help with some decorating.........
