20 AND WOOLLIE
My last post reached 20 comments - first time ever!! Thank you all for your lovely comments and stopping by my blog! It is much appreciated!
In WOOLLIE this week I have finished knitting my brown bowl - it's more an urn shape than a bowl -
and it has been in the washing machine, and shrank appropriately, unfortunately the knitted leaves and berries did not felt appropriately - in fact they did it very inappropriately - came out of the washing machine looking like shrivelled up little balls and when I finally managed to straighten out all 12 of them they had hardly shrunk at all. So then, the little lightbulb went on in my head (too late as usual to have prevented me knitting 12 leaf shaped blobs) and I am going to knit a big square, felt it and then cut out leave shaped pieces - makes much more sense to me - NOW!!!
I also managed to finish the 3rd blankie - this one has a sea theme. I like it, but not as much as the other 2!
There hasn't been much WANDERING around here recently! But September is coming and that means holidays!! I am wandering to Auxerre in France for 4 nights for my friends wedding, followed by a night in Paris and then I will be back at work for a week before heading to Boulder, Colorado for 2 weeks!! I can't wait!
