I’ve just got back from a nice sunny Saturday run. I went “nosing” around all the posh houses and gardens (all £1m plus!) today. I can only dream of owning one of those.
I’ve returned to the more reasonably priced end of town and an sitting on my patio pondering what to do next!
I thought I’d share quickly what I have on my hooks and needles at the moment before I get on with the serious task of the weeks washing and ironing!
I’m working on this diamond shawl pattern using scheepjes whirl. This is “blueberry bambam”. It’s a pattern I’m working up and will share soon!
On my needles this week is a “WIP dive” project that I started months ago and need to finish. it will be a giraffe once I’ve knitted it legs and an arm, stuffed and sewed it! will share once finished! It’s knitted “flat” and then seamed but I can’t get on with straight needles! They are just too long! I do everything on circular needles, even if I’m just going “back and forth” on them.
Not strictly hooking or knitting, but still yarn-based! A friend at work requested “more pompoms” so I’m working on a Pompom Garland project for her!
Assuming I can wrestle them off this dragon……
Finally I’m plotting what to make with this lovely stash of squishy yarn that I got from the Loop Knitting Shop earlier in the week. I have a scarf design in mind!! [EDIT: Posting about scarf thoughts here!]
So many lovely squish bright fun knitting and crochet projects to make me happy!
That’s all for now!
Everything looks great!! I can’t wait to see the giraffe:)
thanks! I’m going to see how far I get with that today! watch this space! 😊
Oooh, love that shawl!
It’s looking great! Thank you for sharing!
I have lots of WIPs myself so I can relate! 😋
can’t have too many though right? 😂
Amen sister!! 🙏🏼
thanks. I’ve written it, just in test mode at the moment so I can check it works before I release it! will get it out soon hopefully! 😊
I have blueberry bam bam! And loving the pattern!
Hey, nice dragon! 😉
haha! 😂😂 only people who are reading your post and mine will get the joke! hop over to this post here to see other dragons! 😊😊😊 https://procrastinatorsdayoff.wordpress.com/2017/07/24/ta-matey/
How came you by this majestic dragon? Mayhaps it will give a clue as to her name…
she appeared (a little after a male dragon…a assume because she fancied him?) from a ball of yarn. He has since gone to live on Australia….men can be such sods! here they are together https://jo-creates.com/2017/01/21/the-knitamals/ maybe she is a “yarnagon”? 🤔
They look very happy together but she is such a stunner I’m sure she will find love again. 🙂 Yarnagon, she shall be. I love unusual names.
I won’t tell her you think it’s unusual, just in case she tries to reply and fries my laptop! thanks though for providing inspiration. I think it suits her!
Looking forward to following you. Like your avatar, too.
thanks Ruth! 😊
