Claire very kindly sent me and Mr E some lovely happy mail this week.
This is my mug rug and this
one is for Mr E. Claire is so very kind and we loved our happy mail thank you.
I had another look at my Sawdust heart this week. I am still not sure.
I am happy with the lettering now, it can be read, but what about those sequins. Keep or loose? Thoughts please?
The back I sealed down with a row of sequins too, in homage to the original sawdust hearts which had a lot of sequins on them.
Somehow I have to attach my number to the back too as it is covered up , under the cover.
More information on the Sawdust Hearts project can be found here
After my action packed week last week, things have been quieter this . Some cleaning and gardening has been squeezed in and there has been time for knitting.
I tidied our bedroom this week and tried to put some leftover yarn into my pine chest. Opening said chest I found another bag of yarn with patterns for at least three projects, that’s in addition to two bags lying on the floor and a couple stashed away in the guest room wardrobe. I simply have to find more time in which to knit, so I can tidy, dust and hoover.
The thing I decided was to stick to finishing one project at a time. So, I cast off the asymmetrical Sunday scarf, that with the two line pattern which I may not divulge under any circumstances, the pattern says so. It reads
” This design is protected by copyright. Reproduction in whole or part is STRICTLY FORBIDDEN. Nor may the design be knitted and used for monetary gain.” So that is telling me.
It’s two lines long for goodness sake, and I reckon a lot of you could figure it out all by yourselves. It seems a bit OTT to me. Anyway should you be interested it came from the Leeds wool festival and from the stall by this shop, kit details here
Impossible to photo really but super snuggly and I am set for Autumn. It was perfect knitting when I couldn’t concentrate on any other project.
Talking of concentrating, both the crochet tiles blanket and the cardigan I am making for Little Miss F both require thought. So my thinking ran finish one then do the next , so on with the cardigan. Two fronts and the back done, onto the sleeves, yikes they are both lacy, double yikes after the first 16 rows, pattern reads these 16 rows set the pattern , increase in third and every following fourth row. BUT, I have to figure out all by myself where to put the new bits of lacy pattern into the increases. Oh My.
Which is all very well and good if I can really think. Which after about 5pm I can’t. Cue another knitting project for evening/tv knitting. This one is relatively straight forward but I bet you can’t guess what I am knitting.
Go on , give it a go.
So what are your plans for the weekend. Anyone doing anything exciting? I am saving myself up for a super duper double exciting day on the 26 May. It is so exciting , I am getting goose bumps thinking about it. Not chancing fate by saying what exactly, but oh my.
What are the creative plans? I hope to finish this sleeve, and maybe make a start on the next.
Whatever you do, stay safe and Be Happy,
