Think I have finally managed to convince the other half to go camping for a couple of days :-) Hopefully the sun has only temporarily gone in *rolls eyes*. I've completed 2 doilies now - only another 5 to go!
OK so its Thursday now - woops!! There are still too many things on my needles though.
1. Josie's Genevieve Sweater
I've done the body and 6 inches of the skirt bit - not sure whether to go for hip length or dress length but I'm getting very bored with all the stockinette so it might end up being hip length!! Sleeves and hood to complete too. The largest size is age 4/5 and she is 6 so I am hoping it will be finished before she outgrows it.
2. Liesl by Ysolda for me
I'm only halfway down the yoke so its going to be a long time yet! Be nice to wear it this summer lol
3. Josie's attic 24 welcome bird
I've finished the bird so only need to stuff it and sew it up. Was supposed to be finished for when we moved in this house to welcome her bedroom but that was 10 months ago!
4. Dai's balaclava
Think summer is here now so I can put this one on hold until the Autumn
5. Holiday Throw Moroccan Tile Afghan
This is my holiday project and after 10 years of holidays it's still not finished!!! Time to make it a project for non holiday time too. Want to put this in Knighton Show so I must finish it by the end of August. All squares finished its just joining them and the border to complete.
1 and a half completed!!! Its warm weather so no rush :-)
Decided to pick up Josie's Genevieve swing coat tonight. Havent done anything with it for several months as the 8 inches of 131 stockinette stiches were getting a bit tedious! Anyway discovered that I had stolen my knit pro tips for another project so had to waste nearly an hour trying out tension rows. Think I was using a 5.5mm???
I spend hours reading other peoples craft blogs so thought it was about time to start my own. I thought it would be a good way to record my thoughts, projects and save links for all the patterns and inspirations.
I have a huge list of missed birthdays to catch up on - sorry everyone. Mum's quilt sort of took up all my time. Catch up list!
