I'm back to work and had some very blustery playground duties this week.
Thanks for your lovely comments on last year's projects. I did leave some off, what I didn't tell you is that it took some time to make the mosaics, because of this I've added a new page to my blog and I'm putting on projects as they are finished, I think this should make things easier.
My first project of the new year is a Kindle Cosy for 'Miss Sparkle' our reception teacher. She'd told me she was getting a Kindle for Christmas and she loved the Adriafil Knitcol yarn that I made my Ipad cosy with, so I knew she'd like this. She made lots of squeals when I gave it to her!
The sun was out today and whilst not hot it was pleasant outside. I took a wander around the garden and found some Hellebores in flower.
I also washed my (very dirty) car. Not the most exciting job in the world, but I got to wear my new wellies. Some of you may have seen Lucy's wellies that she got from Next. When I saw these knitted wellies I was very excited. I rushed down to Next and ordered some.
Now I need to tell you, I usually get green farmer's wellies. They are very boring but there is lots of room for tucking in jeans, thick socks and large calves ~ the ones on your leg not the sort that moo.
Anyhoo, when the Next ones were delivered they were too tight. I was very sad. Boring green for me then.
I popped into the Factory Shop before Christmas and came across these swirly lovelies. I put in my leg. They fitted! How can this be? I then noticed a label saying 'Extra Wide Leg.' That'll be it then. I love 'em and proudly splashed around in them, whilst removing the layers of mud that had built up on the car over the last few months.
I'm keeping one of my resolutions already!
I laid out all the squares from my Summer Granny Square Blanket to see where I am. I've made about 160 squares so far, so I've some way to go but this is getting my full attention.
It does look lovely and bright!
Righto off to crochet some more, the ironing's already done, so a whole evening of hooky. Bliss!
Take care and have fun..................................Clicky Needles
