AND another finish.
Another one in James Brett Party Time Chunky. Available in your lys or Here
As you have gathered it knits up very quickly indeed on big needles. 5mm and 6mm I think. Anyway it has been very gratifying to have so many finishes already this year. Sadly I am at the end of my party time projects. Slower knitting will follow. Here is a close up of the lovely double moss stitch effect. I had my doubts when I began but it’s quite pretty don’t you reckon?
And there was enough yarn left over for an improvised hat which may or may not fit Miss F.
There is a very small ball left over and I reckon with the other two leftover colours I can make something pretty from one the knitting books my Secret Santa gifted me.
Meantime I have started to crochet the 6 blocks for the middle of the blanket I am doing.
Oh that hat crept in again. Now I finished the A-Z challenge so have launched straight into Read 15 books I already own/ have borrowed, that reside in two heaps by our bed. The weekend being very dull and very dreary at least weather wise was perfect for a snuggle on the sofa and read time. I have read book number one , which was by Joanne Trollope- Parson Harding’s Daughter. It was a historical novel of the usual formula, but being by Ms Trollope was very well done and an enjoyable read.
Number two is by Jane Gardam and is called Bilgewater. Bilgewater being the nickname for one Marigold Green who lives with her Dad who’s a schoolmaster at a boarding school. He is known to the boys as Bill, so Marigold becomes Bills daughter, hence bilgewater. I borrowed this one form a friend last year and its time I read and returned it to her. Its a good read, all the excruciating angst of a teenage girl sadly going through a prolonged ugly duck phase, which begins at 5 and goes on to now when she is doing A levels. It’s a humourous book but I feel too sorry for the character to laugh much. Too much identifying going on.
I know I have said no yarn purchases this year till I have knitted up the projects I have in the queue. Believe me the queue is very long! The wardrobe bulges too much.
