A little while ago, our knit and natter group were invited to take a stall at our village chrimbly fayre. We gleefully signed up and got stuck into creating. We were not all of us.. Oh no.
Some of us were a little umm - distracted with day to day normality. Then that particular person (not naming names but.....) suddenly realised that in about 3 weeks she was to have some goodies to go on to the craft table. Talk about getting a panic-on.
So, she begged to borrow her mom's old knitting machine (thanks Jak) then dug through her stash to find some 2 ply hand spun and dyed wools.
Much scratching of head and drinking of tea whilst trying to 'design' patterns on graph paper resulted in this......
Woollen pin cushion
Various stages of crafting, some waiting to be stitched,
others waiting to be stuffed and have their labels added
All a bit wonky and a lot hand made but....
You bet she is!
Also on the knitting front - remember this.....
In my previous guise as 11am I was lucky enough to win 3 balls of skinny yarn - to give it's proper ply and name - it is Rico Design - Fashion Romance, 25gm of mohair, wool and acrylic, 2 ply, in 'ice blue'.
Well, I've playing very nicely thank you,
a lovely silvery blue
with a whispy fluffy feel
a light a delicate scarf in the making
And to make the whole scarf lighter and even more airy
I have added random rows of
And I am loving it!

What have you been making or doing different this week?
What has inspired you to get out and make something or do something out of your comfort zone?
I have done four really 'leap of faith' things this last week.
I've just shown you two of them, my new blog and my knitting adventure ....but, what of the other two I hear you say?
1. Resigned and got a myself shiny new job
2. Bought myself a shiny new car to get me to that shiny new job
