WOOLLIE

Finally some woollie to report on - just in case you were wondering what this blog is supposed to be about! I have been knitting a blanket - lots of little squares from Debbie Abrahams "Blankets and Throws to Knit" - well ok I have managed 1 square so far and then started the next square and had the bright idea of not knitting squares but knitting rows - it was a bright idea until most of the way through the third square in a row I realised I hadn't knitted enough of my second square......ripping time was had by all!! Then I decided to knit a cabled square and have had to rip it twice already!!



Then I got the idea to stop knitting and start something else - so here's a little WIP - can't show you it all because it's going to be for the child of someone I met on my blog...... pre-felt - felted in the washing machine and a little embroidery going on!



For all those into ceramics and crafts - check out my friend Eva's new blog The Crafty Shrimp where she has posted a fantastic green bowl that she made at pottery class....or indeed if you are interested in food check out her other blog The Golden Shrimp where she has some fantastic foodie photos and recipes!
