....is it too big? I thought I should stop and do something else?
But I 'm carrying on because I shall knit something as well and hope this can be kept for when it fits him. I am enjoying knitting it, its a simple 4 row pattern. It's going slowly because after just a short time my arm aches and I put it to one side, where perhaps I should keep going and then perhaps my arm would improve. Anyway I like knitting it. What would you do, would you give up on it?
I am busy crochting the blanket, I suppose I could have given you all a sneak peak but I decided to just keep going.
We're getting a bit staid at home, this afternoon we've even been talking about Brexit and shall we give up on the Archers, as the story lines are all a bit odd lately and some of the characters are getting on DH nerves! LOL
The garden needs an overhaul, some plants have grown much too tall, so we've decided to prune, prune, prune and cut back some of the shrubs and move other plants.. won't you guess when we decide to start it will pour with rain. At the monent I'm suffering, I strained a muscle or something in my back and walking is very painful so gardening will have to wait a week or two.
(not my photo)
These are the main culprits, too tall and hardly any flowers.. so I 'm pulling them all out and next time grow the dwarf variety.
But apart from the cosmos we have had a lovely garden, with success with the small amount of veg we've grown.
I must get on with my blanket I 'm on the 4th repeat of the 16 colours! And enjoying it immensely.
....and popped to my LYS and bought 16 balls of yarn to make....?
...yes another blanket. I don't need it but I miss crocheting.. it keeps me from eating snacky stuff! Not good pics, but I just wanted to 'show and tell.' They didn't cost a lot more than Wool Warehouse, and she knocked off the odd amount over the £30 so a bargain really, wasn't it? Next photos will be the start of my blanket. I'm happily crocheting each evening, in fact very happy. What's your favourite craft?
Although I 've finished this, I feel it's not as good as previous 'mouses' I've knitted, but I 've had enough of teeny tiny bits of knitting, so my next project will be bigger. I 'm popping out to my LYS because altho' I have some yarn, well just a bit, not bags and bags but maybe one or two, they are not the colours I want! And as we all know if you don't like the colours you won't finish it..so I shall be happily making something sooooon, Don't you love starting new projects? (WIPs what are they???)
I knittted quite a few of these little mice a while ago, but when I started the other evening I thought the pattern for the shoes and legs quite difficult. But got them done.
Love that little mousie nose
And the pretty dresses.. I don't know if I 'll use one of these which I did last year, I bought a few patterns, so I might try something different.
If you'd like to try one of these, the patterns are sold on Ravelry and on her blog and are by the very talented Julie Williams Her blog is beautiful as she is also a very talented photographer. Also she is very generous with her explanations, if you ever get stuck.
