Tom is home for Easter! Love to have my boys home!
Small haul of yarn procured in Ashby this morning; who knows what I will make with this but one simply could not resist!
My lovely husband has taken up his needles after so many years of not knitting! When we met he used to make his own shirts and knit fair isle jumpers! Here he is having remembered how to cast on ten stitches (and just about keep a straight face)
Next in line to raise a smile is my friend Helen who I have been teaching to crochet. She is a very skilled lace maker ( I will show you some of her work one day) and after 3 lessons and some very colourful vocabulary has made her very own flower brooch.
How bizarre! That’s what I have been calling my latest creations. A motley collection of stuffed toys and kitsch. Here are one or two pictures of some of the latest additions. The question is, why do a 20 , 21 and 22 year old all think that the knitted Peppa pig is ‘the best thing (you’ve) ever made’!
Knitted rabbit based on this Deramores pattern with his very large dayglo carrot!
Fluffy tail courtesy of my special wool brush- so cute
Next on my list of smile inducing things was going for a walk on Sunday, wrapped up warm against the bitter wind and having freshly home made soup at the farm with the afforementioned knitting man. The same man who the week before took me out for lunch to mark the occasion of my finally leaving paid employment and who has been the most wonderfully supportive partner anyone could wish for. Warm glow and lots of love here!
I could go on but that seems like a good place to end for today. Like I said- well it made me smile…
