I miss chatting about all things yarny on Yarn Along.Only one thing for it, have a knit and natter anyway . Please feel free to join in at any point with a comment or a link to your yarny chatter, it would make me so happy.
I finished the matinée jacket for the new baby to be, too early to say who, what, why, when as the parents are only just past the 12 weeks.
The yarn is by Sirdar and is called Tiny Tots. I had this yarn in my stash so that was a good thing.
The button is a ladybird and was part of my Secret Santa gift , perfect wouldn’t you say?
So then it was onto the next project , I am not certain if I bought this yarn in 2016 or 2015, but it’s for Bagpuss
The yarn is Sirdar snowflake, chunky. Mr E asked me why I was knitting with pipe cleaners, had I run out of yarn? He is a bit cheeky some days! That’s the body of Bagpuss on the needles, the face is driving me a bit crazy, you knit it all in cream and then add the pink stripes, but my stripes looked narrower than those in the picture. Now it may be that they will flatten out when I stitch them , or it could just be that I have worn out my bamboo needles. What do you think?
Well I bought them before we left Oxfordshire from the wonderful wool shop I was then working in, so that makes them at least 15 years old. Maybe time for a new pair of bamboo needles. In the meantime out with an old pair of needles.
Anyway I went on the Deramores web site with the intention of buying more. Big Mistake! They have a sale. I choose a 4 ply pattern and more yarn for the baby bean, and then there was another pattern in the sale and yarn in the sale.
OH NO! I appear to have hit the wrong keys and bought more yarn. So much for my no yarn/ pattern, craft materials purchasing goal for 2017. But when they come next week sometime I will show you, and you will understand why.
In the meantime back to Bagpuss!
Love to hear your yarny chatter and please feel free to leave a link to any yarn related post.
