Welcome to Wool on Sundays! This month, I have finally done some knitting :)

I finished the ‘Girlfriend Market Bag’ that I had just started on the last Wool on Sundays…

And I found and finished (and gifted) a baby cardigan that had been mislaid in the Makery…

But my favourite make is Peter Mouse. He is very excited because he is going to fly to Poland on an aeroplane and go to live with a little boy who is also called Peter.

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 2nd September.

Wool on Sundays – 154 (square one)

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.

I’m using Drops Safran – a 4ply cotton yarn –  left over from my crochet hexie blanket, which turned into a seat cover.

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!

Wool on Sundays – 153 (knitter in progress)

Welcome to Wool on Sundays :)

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.
