School starts properly tomorrow.
It'll be a noisy old place with the hundred or so kids around.
The holidays seem to have gone for-e-v-e-r so it's not so bad.
DD has her first day at college and DS is back too.
He's a Year 8 now where did that time go?
I haven't got many pretty pictures to show you this week but I have finished that Drops Cardi.
I'd been putting off sewing up, but for the life of me I don't know why.
My shock secret today.
I like making up.
I love the way that mattress stitch makes your edges magically disappear.
So here it is.
It's come out slightly longer than I thought it would and the handkerchief bits hang a quite long. I think this is because of a few things:
1. I'm only 5 foot 3 inches and not at all like the tall slim models!
2. The Rowan Cotton Jeans is quite heavy, although it has a nice drape, pulls it down more.
The actual Drops Pattern is a lot more floatier, but I think I'll get lots of wear from it.
Mr Clicky Needles (bless him) said "It looks like one from a shop" so I'm pleased.
I think I'd try it again but maybe in a cosy Alpaca or Wool yarn.
Not much more to say today I'm afraid, I'm amazed that none of you commented on the dreadful camping breakfast of scones and clotted cream, I guess you're all too nice.
It's raining now and will be tomorrow, great for the first day back.
Have fun whatever you get up to..................Clicky Needles.
