Scavenger Hunt

Monday 30 November 2020


 Hello Folks.

How are you doing?  I'm pottering along as usual and trying not to think too much.   Baby Needles keeps me busy; last week we were colouring in triangles.  You might be able to see, she is wearing a cardigan that has little cows on it.  

I made this for Master Clicky twenty years ago and kept it safely until it could be worn agin.

When Baby Needles was out for a walk with her Dad the other day, she stopped walking and put her hands in her mouth because they were so cold, so I made a quick little pair of mittens.  I used a Tin Can Knits pattern, The World's Simplest Mittens.  I think I will attach a piece of elastic to thread them through her coat.

As the weather is getting cooler I have  ~ at last ~ sewn in the ends on my gloves I was knitting back in March during the Amtrak trip Mr Clicky and me took across North America when life was more simple.  It seems like such a long time ago.

I made a little crochet star Christmas Tree which was in Simply Crochet Issue 103.  This was made with Jamieson and Smith's 2ply jumper weight.  

I have also had my white Featherweight, Minty out.  I have used her to make some advent stockings.   
They came on a printed panel which I got in the January sales from John Lewis.  I am not a fan of cutting out and it took me yesterday afternoon to cut the panel and backing fabric.
I found some blue spot and beige spot fabric for the backing in my stash. 

Today I sewed them all up.

These are going to Miss Clicky's to be filled with treats for her, Baby Needles and Mr Son in Law.

The dog, Tipper has been to the vet after having a sore toe which he has been licking a lot.  The vet removed his toe which turned out to be cancerous, a chest x-ray confirmed it hadn't spread.   It was healing very well but he managed to remove the sock that was covering it and burst one of the stitches.  Ever since he has been in disgrace and wearing a cone of shame and I watch him like a hawk.

As you can see, he is not too impressed.

That's me for now, keep safe......Clicky Needles.


  1. Oh poor lad and his toe (mind you he is probably more put out by the cone of shame!) I've never tackled knitting gloves - I tend to stick to mittens, fingerless or otherwise :) and your little crochet star tree just made me go awww :)

  2. Lots of lovelies here Clicky!! That cardigan is fabulous love the cows and fancy it being your son's all so long ago. A well lasting garment for sure! Brilliant advent original!! I bet your family will thoroughly enjoying those surprise treats every day leading to Christmas...I would :-) Poor Tipper he does not look happy! keep well Amanda x

  3. How fun to have BN wear her dad's little sweater. Sweet. What a nice advent of stockings you made for the little family. We're staying warm by the fire here and I'm addressing xmas cards. Tis the season! ((hugs)), Teresa :-)
