Wool on Sundays – 136 (Little Things)

Welcome to another year of Wool on Sundays!

rainbowhareHave you had a yarnful holiday?

I’ve somehow managed to fall right off the yarn wagon. I knitted woolly hat for the Merry Man of Misrule (you can see more of his antics in A Feast of Fools). And I put an edge row around the Rustic Lace Blanket in the hope of calling it finished but it really isn’t quite big enough so I shall have to undo it and either make more squares or do something else around the edges. I’m not feeling much enthusiasm for doing either but perhaps sooner or later my crochet mojo will strike!

On a more cheerful note, my son #1’s fiancee’s sister is having a baby in June. It is years since I’ve had the joy of knitting for little people and I’m wondering how much baby knitting you can reasonably impose upon someone you’ve only met once…

I hope you are having a happy beginning to 2017 :)

Wool on Sundays – 135 (Almost Wooless)

img_1211

Welcome to Wool on Sundays and thank you to everyone who stopped by last week. I was very happy to have a link up from a moose knitting a scarf :D

rainbowhareHave you been knitting or crocheting this week?

My week has been almost wooless. I did start another pair of gloves but today was the day when we bought a Christmas tree and covered it with just about every decoration we’ve ever owned (I will show you another day) and in the ensuing chaos I didn’t get round to taking a photo. I was just thinking that I had nothing whatsoever to show when I remembered I was wearing the gloves I made for Mr RH a couple of weeks ago in a photo of a dress I made last week and didn’t have time to blog about. If you look carefully, you can just about see them! I’m quite pleased with dress. I made it from a remnant of middle weight cotton fabric that I bought for £6 because the selvedge was faded. I used the Dottie Angel frock pattern (making facings for the neck instead of all the binding). I just about scraped it out of the fabric with virtually nothing to spare and, unfortunately, I didn’t have enough left for pockets or any other fabric the same weight.  It came together very quickly and easily though so I’ll certainly make another one of these one day and I’ll have pockets next time.

I hope you are having a happy December and are not too much rushed off your feet!

Wool on Sundays – 134 (Colour Block Lap Blanket)

img_1216

Welcome to another Wool on Sundays and thank you all very much for the lovely comments on my jumper last week :)

rainbowhareAs yet, I still don’t have a modelled photo but when I was looking through my yarn for the jumper I did find that, despite my conviction in this post, I actually had some Drops Karisma in Green Mix after all. People tell me that I can expect this sort of thing to happen more and more as I get older :( I will still need to invest in some for the Rustic Lace Blanket, at some point, but there was enough to finish up the Colour Block Lap Blanket, last seen borderless and modelled by Mrs Hare back in October.

I made a simple fairly small border because I didn’t want to get half way through a pattern and run out again!

The centres of the ‘flower’ blocks are the same as the Rustic Lace pattern and everything else is done in V stitch, which I learn’t from the wonderful crochet stitch alphabet series at Craft and other Crazy Plans.

I hope you are keeping warm and finding some time for a little yarn now and then :)
