I have had a few more months not doing much on the Woolly Wednesday front. Only a couple of posts and not too much woolly work.
Our little cat is growing and is getting better when the knitting comes out thanks to a few spritzes 😉
I have given up my shelf in the shop because I just haven’t had the time to keep my stock up. I did do a stall at a local church hall last week which was fun and I made a few sales. Still get a buzz when people want to buy something that I have made ❤
Planning to be a lot more organised and motivated in December. I might even pay attention to WordPress reminders to post something. Really don’t know why I set them because all I do is ignore them 🤔
Hoping you are all better prepared than I am for the forthcoming holidays.
No knitting or other woolly pursuits to report on.
Maro the menace is the reason why. He can hear a pair of needles from miles away 😥 No wool therapy for me!!!
He’s had all of his injections now so is allowed in the garden under supervision. Now our garden has been left to its own devices this summer, the bees have loved it. Maro enoys chasing bugs but has been known to get carried away. Currently I have had to rescue him from a tree and the shed roof 😉 And this morning he gave his hind quarters a dip in the frog pool, the toad who lives there was not happy 🐸
I’m hoping to lock myself away with my needles for a day or two as I finally have some time off work. With any luck I will have something to show and tell soon😊
The kitten has allowed me to do a bit of hooking so I have been perfecting my string bags. Sadly the ends of my knitting needles drive him wild so avoiding those at the moment. I have hissed at him as recommended by my kayaking friend but he just looks bemused and then has another go😉 Avoidance is my current policy….
N has a kitten. Maro (said kitten) and I have had loads of fun with a bit of yarn tonight but it has made me realise I need to confine the stash because he could have far too much fun if he found that😉
So looking for more nooks and crannies to hide the stash because let’s face it N doesn’t need to know how bad (big) it is 😂
The torrid temperatures of a couple of weeks ago have moved on and now we have lots of showers which have cooled everything down. AND more to the point I can get my knitting needles out!!!
It is fair to say that the baby blanket has progressed a lot more than the camper blanket! Baby is due in November, camper is still at the garage having work done! But look at all those ends that are going to need weaving in😔 Why did I go for a stripey chevron? 🤔
On the bright side I managed to get a load of washing dried on the line in between showers today 😉
Still working on my string bags, they seem to be quite popular in the shop 😉
I’ve also made a little basket bag. It’s double crochet using Lily sugar ‘n cream and finished off with a knitted flower and a dirty great button. Room for purse, phone, lippy, tissues and hand sanitizer – what’s not to like 😄
We’re having a wet weekend I hope you are fairing better?
Not much to report on the crafting front for the month of July, it was just too hot to knit!
I have dabbled with crocheting little toys as not as hot and sweaty as knitting a blanket!
And I have been working on making a bunny. I started with Lockdown Lucy when we were isolating and have tweaked her a bit to make Bella. There will be more bunnies to follow me thinks until I am happy with Hoppy 🐰🐰🐰
August has started with rain and wind so I hope to get a bit more done on my blankets 🤔
