I’ve been cleaning out my linen press, and came across a whole bag of knitted baby items. I do love knitting those little baby items – they give me so much pleasure. I don’t ever seem to give them away, and so the bag gets fuller and fuller. They only take two balls of 8 ply, and I really find I do it for relaxation more than anything.
Many, many photos to follow:
Yes, I have made the same pattern over and over, thank you for noticing. It’s my favourite and it works really well in a bright, strong 8 ply like the rose pink above. I think it’s feather and fan but I could be wrong, I don’t know the names of these patterns like I do in quilting.
Did you have a lovely weekend and Father’s Day? We drove over to visit my husband’s father – my dad died years ago so the day isn’t about him any more. And my husband, of course – he did rather well. My girls made their lovely hand made silly presents that they do at school – the stocking head filled with grass seeds that grows as hair, the gorgeous hand made cards – I keep them all, of course. Not the stocking head, obviously but every card those girls have made is safely kept away.
God help the person who has to clean out my cupboards after I’ve gone. I’m one more matinee jacket and hand made card away from my own episode of ‘Hoarders’.
Have a lovely day!
