arrrrggghhhh! I’m on a crafting overload at the moment, I have so much going on in my head that I can’t focus on one thing.
Firstly, Alexis had been put on the back burner for a few days as I wanted to knit something for my friend’s daughter who has just turned 1yr.
I searched through all my patterns (not that I find that a chore…I love looking through them all, imagining what yarn I have in my stash could be used to make each one…is that wrong? Am I going a bit insane? Please don’t answer that!)
Anyway, I decided on the Peapod Set found on the Knitting Daily site. I didn’t do the hat though, just the cardi and a little crocheted hairband…
Knitted in 170g Debbie Bliss Cashmerino Aran, on size 4mm straight needles.
The pink stripe is Wendy 100% cotton.
It was really quick to knit, the back and fronts are knitting in one, and then sleeves sewn in.
Did you see that?
Yep, I can now crochet well enough to say…”I can crochet”. It all just suddenly clicked, and I was left thinking, well, why couldn’t I do this before?
So now my fibre possibilities have doubled, tripled even, how much can you do with a hook and yarn?
See the problem I’m having?
I still have this stainless steel thread going around my head too. Because just 14g is quite alot of money, what I do with it needs to be perfect. I suppose I could just do the kushi kushi scarf and have done with it. hmmmmmm
In the meantime…my wonderful anniversary present from my husband…
Ardbeg whiskey glass and water container (not that I would ever use it, the only thing you put in a whiskey, is another one!)
The glass has to sit on a leather ring as it has no bottom, that is, it’s not flat.
J also bought me some of these…
Indian sweets from here.
He had to go back to Leicester, sadly, to the funeral of a very good friend of ours, JimG. He will be greatly missed.
One of the things I do miss about Leics are the Indian restaurants, not the ones for students, I mean the ones for Indians. Beautiful food, wonderful flavours and the sweets…to die for!
Finally, the tank I’m working on is coming along…well, slowly.
right, I’m off. I’m doing a craft stall for Kavanagh Park fun day today (fun? it’s chucking it down!)
