I am so loving this knitting and crochet malarkey, it makes my heart feel all squidgy.
I have been known to squeal in delight when I have finished an item, this little FO being no exception. I have had other people become as excited as me when I showed them the almost finished item, I can just imagine a little person in this……….
My son (21 yr) said to me when he saw it “It’s a pity they will grow out of it so quickly” I replied with “They will be able to wear it as a top” It has plenty of sideways stretch.
My girlfriend wants to buy it for her niece who has just had a little baby girl. Will be knitting more when I get my Harry Potter sock yarn.
So what’s next on the needle???????
This…….Perendale – ‘Mixed Berry’ New Zealand wool from The Wool Company 8 ply, it is knitting up like a dream, may just have to purchase some more as they have some beautiful colorways. I have to thank Alice for this. I wound it into a ball, all 200g, and I almost got to the end and then it tangled……it took me an hour to unravel it. I had intended hopping into bed at 10.30 but it was after 11.30 and I had to be up the next morning at 6.10am, groan. Not only that, my son had fallen asleep with his music on and I don’t know how to turn it off, so there I was in bed after 11.30 with a pillow squashed over my head attempting to block out the base, thump, thump. Needless to say I didn’t have the best sleep.
So back to the yarn, my friend has a winder thingie she is going to attempt to find and give it to me.
Wish you could smell them, they smell divine.
I went for a job interview on Monday as a sales rep for two very lovely ladies who have a warehouse supplying Organic, Fair Trade, Biodynamic, Sustainable goods, I found out Tuesday that I got the job, I will be working two days a week for 6 hours each day starting next Tuesday. I’m a little…umm…..nervous because I have not had a sales position before, however I believe in their products. It makes me feel a bit better too knowing I have a bit of money coming in, it means we will have a roof over our heads, food on the table and our bills paid for a bit longer than I first thought. A nice work/life balance, two part-time jobs and days off to still walk and knit/crochet.
I did have to buy a couple of clothing items (what a shame) because I have either:- windcheater and t-shirt type clothes or corporate clothes. I can wear jeans and nice tops so I bought a nice top in green and a long hooded cardigan in a grey knit and a pair of thick legging type pants, I just need a pair of flatish boots to wear with jeans and I will be set.
My daughter has two weeks of work, dancing in the Lady Gaga children’s Holiday shows, I may go with my cousin and her two girls.
Oh my it is dinner time so I had best get a wriggle on.
Thank you for all your so very welcome and lovely comments, I will reply very soon, it’s been a little hectic here this past week.
Mushy love to you all.
