Welcome to Wool on Sundays!
I have concluded that that a heatwave, wonderful though it is in many respects, doesn’t make for a very yarnful time.
I have, however, started a new knitting project and I’m happy to have something back on my needles again. So far it is just a square but I’m very much liking this square as I’ve never knitted one from the centre before.
And soon it will turn into a bag. I’m using a great pattern by Laura Spradlin called ‘Girlfriend Market Bag’, which you can find on Ravelry. It’s a sort of string bag (if you remember those!) and I think it’ll be ideal plastic carrier bag replacement to fold up inside my usual bag and have to hand when required. If it turns out to be as speedy-to-make and as useful as I’m expecting, perhaps I’ll make a batch to gift…
Apart from that that, I just made my knitting lady a hat, a scarf and a basket of wool. I fear her knitting is progressing quicker than mine but she is knitting in the Winter and has longer evenings!
If you have any yarn themed posts, 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 5th August.
