Have you had a yarnful month?

I think if there were a prize for the smallest bit knitting in a month (not counting months of no knitting at all) I would win! It has been very hot here, the garden is still on-going (though I am hoping an end – to the extent extent that gardens ever end – is in sight) and the hours of darkness, when I finally get to do anything to do with with crafting or blogland, are very short so all I have managed to work on recently is little bits and pieces of my stitching project, which I showed snippets of in my last post. Some knitting is done but the knitter is still in progress and she says she feels shy about apearing in a post without any face or hair!

She also has a label which, though not knitted, is knitting themed…

I’m enjoying this stitching project because it gives me something to plan whilst I’m gardening and it contains a variety of ideas and techniques so I’m managing not to get bored of it even though it’s progressing so slowly. I hope during June I will get back to normal and be here more often. In the meantime, if you have any wool or yarn projects, small or large, I’d love you to link up.

The rules, as usual, are: 1). Posts must include some content – makes or musings or photos – related to knitting, crochet, felting, spinning or yarn. 2). Projects sewn from felt or wool fabric or stitchery using wool are also welcome but please don’t link posts that are exclusively about sewing, quilting and fabrics. 3). Posts don’t have to be from the past week but please put a link to WOOL ON SUNDAYS or grab the button from my sidebar and include it in or at the bottom of any posts you link up. 4). MOST IMPORTANT visit anyone else who links. The next Wool on Sundays will be on Sunday 1st July.

Currently, I’m a prisoner in the garden where I seem destined to live out the rest of my days and late into the evenings weeding and weeding and weeding….So much time to dream up exciting new sewing projects – and so little time to sew…

I will be back when it rains!

I hope you are finding more agreeable ways to spend these lovely May days,

Wool on Sundays – 152 (not much to show)

Welcome to May’s Wool on Sundays. I hope the sun is shining, today, on your part of the world. Since the last Wool on Sundays, I seem to have been juggling lots of things and balls of wool were not in the mix.

Mainly, my every waking (non-working) daylight moment has been taken up with  the garden, which was waterlogged since the Autumn (with a couple of snow interludes), until April when, in one week, we had a mini heat wave (28 degrees), a month of rain in a day and a hard frost. And my Endeavourer’s quilt, which I thought I’d never finish, has occupied my evenings!

So my month’s knitting amounts only to this!

I really must press on with it or the new baby I’m making it for will outgrow it before I finish but first I have a lot of emails to reply to.

Hopefully, some nice woolly posts will be linked up for us all to enjoy.

I hope you have a lovely may :)
