Wool, Wiltshire and All Manner of Wonderful Things!

Yarn Along!

Thanks so much to everyone who left comments last week, about the knitted village. I took your advice and wrapped it up individually and carfeully put it into bags to be opened in a certain order.

So what happened? Did Little Miss F like it? She opened the blanket bit first and gave a great whoop of joy and put Cinderella to bed under it.

Sometime later she opened the rest of it.

Cinderella’s new blanket is a big hit!!

So it’s back to the white cable cardigan which requires my total concentration. I have already made two mistakes, but one I didn’t notice for weeks and is so far down that if I have frog back to it I know it will be the end of the project. So now I regard it as a wearable training project!

L is for Marina Lewycka. I loved her first book and her second book and in my opinion this one is the best of the lot. Plot summary- what happens to a group of people and their grown up children after their life in a 1980’s commune. Very funny in parts.

But wait, who is this?

Not as Mr E said a hamster in a christmas decoration but a hedgehog. Yarn is King Cole Tinsel. Such fun to make. And an antidote to scary cable pattern.

Linking with Ginny for Yarn Along

  1. I enjoyed this book too, also We are all Made of Glue read by Sian Thomas. (I’ve read or listened to four by this author.) I do audible.co.uk books read to me as I walk or craft.

  2. So glad the village went down well! Love the jazzy hedgehog 😊

  3. Aw, she loves it! Way to go Gma. And isn’t that hedgie adorable!!!

  4. Your Tinsel hedgehog made me smile – a lot – it’s fabulous! What pattern did you use.
    And the book – that looks like one I might be able to read – (no war or violence – or is there?).

  5. I love that adorable hedgehog. So glad that the Cinderella blanket was a hit.

  6. Awww! The best part of Christmas and birthdays is watching the little ones open their gifts isn’t it? It’s not quite the same when they’re 21 and 23 :/

  7. Oh my goodness, you just had me scurrying back to find your post I missed last week. The village is FABULOUS!! Well done you. No wonder Little Miss F loved it 🙂

  8. Lovely, lovely creations. But how did I miss last week’s village? It’s GAWJUS, and should provide tears of pleasure!

  9. I don’t expect anyone will notice the mistake when it is worn. I am a perfectionist but life is too short to correct everything!

  10. My Cinderella certainly got a lovely blanket! And that hedgehog is SO CUTE!
