The little blue jacket has been put aside this week. I’ve been spending sometime with my sewing machine and so have wanted some ‘no thought required' yarny distractions.
On the needles I’ve started knitting a very plain woolly garter stitch scarf. I’m in no rush to complete this project, with summer only just starting I won’t need any extra help keeping warm! This project is all about having something easy to turn too when I’m otherwise overwhelmed or exhausted.
On the hook is some cotton being transformed into some secret Santa goodness. Can you guess what I’m making?
And in the post today? This Patons Woolcraft booklet that used to belong to my Nan. Her name is written on the front cover. I wonder why she wrote her name on it? Perhaps she used to lend it to friends. I’m not sure when the booklet was published but it must have been sometime ago. It is filled with instructions on how to knit and crochet and different kinds of stitches. There is also a pattern for a v-neck jumper that I think is the one Nan knitted me when I was a teenager. I’d like to have a go at making one, although perhaps in a larger size these twenty-five years and three babies later.
Joining in with Ginny.
