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 😉
June seems to have flown by. All of my excitement at the end of May has waned. Work has been incredibly busy and I barely feel as if I survived the month but I have a few days off now to recharge and get back on track 😎
I have sold one item at the craft shop so a long way from making a profit but thrilled that someone liked it enough to pay for it.
I have started a baby blanket in white (a divine bamboo and cotton mix) which I am working on when I have the energy to focus but the rest of the time I am playing around with bits of yarn and a hook with the intent of making a blanket for Lucia N’s little camper.
And my nephew finally sent me a photo of him modelling the cable knit that I recently sent him. 😆
So bring on July, I’m looking for energy and inspiration! !!
Still on the look out for the inspiration for my next big project. In the meantime I have been making more cosies for old jam and pickle jars.
Though I say it myself I am quite pleased with these. Super chunky yarn on chunky needles worked in garter stitch. You may recognise the yarn from the toy basket I made a couple of months ago.
So great way of using up old bits of yarn and I should have the tidiest desk in town with all of the desk tidies I have been making but sadly it just looks cluttered with desk tidies 😂
Anyway I have decided I need something to get my teeth (or needles) into so I am going to start a blanket for Lucia the camper. I’ve got a bag of little balls of DK that was free with magazines so I’m going to use that up. It will be a real mishmash of colours but it will be a great stash buster 😋
I have just read through my May posts as my brain seems to be a bit of a blank as to May mayhem!
On the whole I had quite a productive month and finally finished the cable knit WIP WIP HOORAY! But that means I am on the look out for a new project to get my teeth into😄
I’m still interested in bags and storeage which has been a fun way to improve my stitch knowledge. My efforts have been quite organic as I have been making the shape up as I go along so I only need to concentrate on the stitches – very mindful!
And I am still making woolly covers for jam and pickle jars to turn them into attractive desk tidies 😉
And my really exciting news I have some of my items are for sale at a local craft hub HS ART 😊
So the new month sees me on the look out for a new project…
