Ahhh time to rest.
I've got a bit of Half Term-itus, sore throat, cold sore (aarragh) and I'm just generally a bit worn out.
We've all been taking it easy and Mr CN has got the week off too, so we're looking forward to some days out together.
My little granny squares are increasing......
....even though Mr CN looked and said, 'That'll take a long time to be a blanket', well yes he is right, but I'm at a bit of an impasse at the moment ~ I'm not sure what to start which is most unlike me. When I finish off one project the next is usually already hatching in my head, but not much is coming up at the moment, so these are filling the void.
I have started a felted tea pot cosy but it won't take long. Now, before some of you start laughing (and you know who you are!!!!) I ALWAYS use a teapot to make tea. I also like my tea strong and hot and unless you have a cosy it'll be strong but not very hot. I've gathered together some feltable wool ~ New Lanark Double Knit (worth checking out if you've not seen it before) which was in the stash...
and I've got going.
I have been finding some inspiration in my latest Amazon purchase. This is a cracking book, the best in the One-Skein Wonders series in my opinion.
There are socks, hats, gloves, scarves, baby clothes and some lovely shawls. I really like these sideways socks might have to have a go at them.
May's squares for the friendship blanket have been despatched. As you can see both of them came from the Vogue Stitchionary Book I got a few weeks ago. I'm rather pleased with them!
It's not been too easy taking garden pictures it's quite grey and windy and the plants are moving too much! I did manage to catch these Snapdragons who have self seeded in the gravel under the patio door.
Well I'm off now ~ no ironing for a change (!) just watching TV and knitting.
Have a great Bank Holiday and a super week.
