Those who plan good find Loyalty and faithfulness.
Well hello to you all! I have been chasing my tail a bit these last couple of weeks, where did the time go? lol The change in weather seems to have made me want to snuggle up at night time and go to sleep, not want to get out of bed in the mornings because it is just too darn snuggly and knit cowls and scarves! Take a look........
Heather the feather gave me some you beaut yarn and wow I fell in love with it mighty quickly. After drooling and patting it, I read the label.......no wonder........Made in Italy!!!
Lovely shades of colour
Mrs Farmer Chris gave me a bag of yarn a little while back and I’m still scratching through it finding lovely treasures. This yarn didn’t have a label on it but there was just enough to make a cowl. It is fairy floss soft and a blue and red fleck of colour through it. I added another yarn with it, a 5 ply black for volume.
This one’s for me!!
A cowl with mixed colours on it’s way to the market. I had no pattern for this one, I just made it up as I went. I loved the colours and stitched this one to make a more solid finish.
Also found....one ball of netted yarn to knit up a curly scarf. Have any of you guys made one of these scarves before? I hadn’t and there were no instructions with it. Best idea was to get on to Youtube and check it out. This is how it turned out and I love it. Have to be honest though.....I didn’t really enjoy making it, but it does look lovely!!!
Keeping in the theme of winter items......I did make these bed slippers to take to market. I have shown this style of bed slipper in previous blogs but I just love them. If you would like to knit them yourself, click here.
Hey have you gals seen this edition of Homespun? Yum yum!!!
Believe it or not!!!!
Last weekend I was roughing it having a cuppa with Heather the feather. Lol....oops (was I mean about Heather?) At 3.30 in the afternoon I cast on 132 sts to start this baby blanket. I was telling Heather I would really like to get this blanket made. Of course she had all those wicked jibes to expel on me and on we went. I was so determined to get this made for a new nephew of mine that...........I finished this blanket on the Monday morning at 8.30am. The measurements are 34in x 26in.
Believe it or not!!! I am a maniac knitter.
Made with love for my nephew Charlie xx
I also found a very nice head band pattern made using cotton. I had a ball of cream coloured cotton, so I thought I’d give it a go.

Well I’d best be off to start some housework and then have a great afternoon relaxing. Happy stitching, sewing, knitting, crocheting etc.
