Look at what arrived today as a thank you to me for knitting a pairs socks. They are amazing!
Trying not to feel the cold.
Hanbury Hall looking very pretty.
I love the depth of colours in this yarn. It is not dyed, it comes straight from the Alpaca and if you look carefully at the yarn you see rusts and golds interwoven with browns and reds and blacks and the odd fleck of white hair that has gotten into the mix. I love it, it is just so me.
I made a pair of Fetchings (free pattern on Ravelry) and a matching hat for a special lady’s 80th birthday
my Mum loves this pattern because they seem to keep her fingers warm and she doesn’t have to take off her gloves to get money out of her purse. So I hoped they might be a suitable choice for a birthday present.
and I also made prawn vol au vents as my dish to take to her party, there was some really nice food there, a great time was had by all.
I made a pair of socks for a local lady copper (police woman) who has been nicking her husbands socks (that I had made) because they were so warm and cosy. I thought I had better make her a pair before she gets into trouble with the law. Apparently she just loves how they fit in her boots and the way that they keep her toes toasty warm.
I am nearly at the end of my cardigan that I started a couple of years ago. *cough*
and have been bobbling at all times of the day and night.
No matter how much time I spend bobbling I don’t seem to get any closer to the end. I am on my last push for the next few days. It is completely driving me bonkers that I can’t get this cardigan on my back and everything else has been left to one side, until this is finished.
Normal service will be resumed, just as soon as I have finished the bobbles.
