Wool, Wiltshire and All Manner of Wonderful Things!

Yarn Along!

I have finished Little Miss F’s mermaid’s tail. TADAH!

And up close

The wavy pattern and elasticated top

Middle section with pink seahorse by Wild Daffodil.

Thanks Sandra.

And the flippers which proved to be a real struggle to sew in nicely. Anyway all done. To be delivered next week. Pattern is Sirdar 4708 and the yarn used is Sirdar Snuggly shade 0470

So now on the needles for a new little one due in the Autumn.

Is a first size matinée jacket, in yarn I just so happened to have squirreled away.

Book is from the heap by the bed, and was given to me by my son as a “Thank you for having me to stay whilst I go to a football match Up North!” As if I needed any thanks for a visit from a son.

Anyway the book is shaping up nicely. The American dream gone wrong I think, but ’tis early days.

  1. That is lovely news!

  2. How did I miss this post!!!! Life has been a bit hectic around here recently. The seahorse looks great on your amazing mermaid’s tail.
    Did I tell you that Little Miss M fell in love with Ollie – I think the feeling is mutual, so Ollie flew across the fields and now lives in a cosy log cabin on the farm. Little Miss M and Ollie snuggle up together every night and I often find the owl arranged with other toys and a glitter ball having a disco! She is much loved!

  3. Well done for persevering – she’ll love it!

  4. Brilliant, what a gorgeous colour!
