Well hello there all your gorgeous people out there in blogland. I hope that you are having a happy day. I have some very strange free time this week due to my girlie being poorly. She slept for two hours yesterday .. in the daytime … and then slept all night too. Let me tell you that this is most unusual! She’s now absolutely fine and pootling around the house happily with small plastic objects being distributed all over – mostly cars!
I took advantage of the peace and quiet, not to mention being home in the daytime, to do just a smidgen more hood creation. I started this one as a ‘Hello Kitty’ experiment but let me tell you that starting in the dim light of the lounge led me to choose not white, but cream yarn. By the time I’d discovered my mistake it was too late to turn back so I kept going and waited for inspiration to hit.
Is it a furry bear/ is it a white lion? who knows. But I do know one thing – I love it! I’d forgotten how much I love using wool as a fringe. Oh the happiness.
My next mission is to make a hot water bottle cosy for a lovely aunt who
nagged requested me to make one for her after seeing this creation of mine.
So of course I will oblige. What colour to make? Hmm tricky! I eventually decided on stripey! A piccie of the finished cosy will follow – soon I hope.
I haven’t made a blanket for a long time – over the years I’ve made a few – here are my favourites
Oh the spotty, the stripey and the rippley! I love them all. The top one was made for my new nephew (over a year ago) the second – well that’s mine! and the third is my son’s ripple which forever resides on his bed. I can’t decide what I want to make next – suggestions would be welcomed.
I will go and ponder and see where my pondering leads to!
Until next time, happy making!
