I have been busy this week with lots of things! All the Spring bulbs are in now. I love choosing new bulbs every year, having something to look forward to the other side of Winter! I have started the Autumn garden tidy up, which means another trip to the recycling centre with the debris is imminent.
I have also started to look again at my own Family History research. I bought myself a workbook in which to record names etc, it is helping show up gaps in where I got too when I did a lot of the work 8 years ago. I am hoping to go to the Borthwick Library based at York University next month, to search for Wills that are stored there.
So all that has left a little less time on the crafty stuff. I sewed buttons onto the Snowflake hoody!
They sort of disappear into the yarn but they are actually
ABC buttons! Then I had enormous fun knitting a Twiddlemuff.
It took a while to figure out what I was doing, so I took pictures as I went along to remind me, and I will write a separate post about it.
Then whilst I had the spare yarn ( not stash, but unused, leftover yarn) downstairs I crocheted a cat blanket!
Think that should be big enough for an outside kind of moggy.
Then I finally got round to starting to knit some gloves for ME.
The yarn is Sirdar Country Style DK, colour is called linen.
I borrowed this book from the library.
I have to say the projects inside are really CUTE, and the yarn they use is everyday yarn, not cost you a fortune hard to find yarn, which is a big plus to me. However two of the patterns are rattles and call for a rattle inner. I have never come across rattle inners for toys and I wondered if anyone else had, and if so where to buy them? Teddy growlers I have seen but not rattles. I am intrigued. I may also have to buy this book…..
Tomorrow is Repair Cafe day! That means weekend washing and shopping has to be done today. So organised!
Do tell what you have been doing this week, I so love our natters.
Have a great weekend,
