As mentioned in my previous post, I have made yet another little cushion! This one is for my youngest daughter C. I made it from material and ribbons that I already had as C was insistent that I start it right away. It’s really bright and cheery – much like the little girl for whom it was made! And once again those cute rabbits made an appearance on the back 🙂
Apart from the cushion, I have been doing a bit of mending, including sewing the beard back on a gnome my daughter H knitted in Class 2 of our Steiner ( Waldorf) school last year. Isn’t he gorgeous!
I have made some headway on my crotchet cushion. Eleven squares down, five more to go. I am really enjoying it now, although I still prefer to knit as I can do it on long car journeys (I get car sick when I crotchet as it involves me looking down ) and whilst watching a film ( as I have to look down at my work the whole time, I cant get really engrossed in a film ). I imagine a more experienced crocheter would be able to do it without always looking? Or maybe not? Let me know.
And finally, when I am not sewing or crocheting, I have signed up to test knit a shawl. I have had this gorgeous alpaca yarn for over a year and really wanted to finally make a shawl with it. Luckily when I searched ravelry for something suitable this came up.
It is a pleasure to knit and the colour is coming up beautifully. The deadline is mid- August; just in time to cosy up in it around the campfire this summer 🙂
