knitting show and tell

Photo 13-7-18, 4 09 26 pmSometimes when I am sick of the ballet project hexagons, I like to do something mindless, like knitting.

I’ve got so many odd balls of wool, and I’ve found that two 50 gram balls will make a matinee jacket. 

So that’s what I’ve been doing, at night or in the car while waiting and waiting and waiting for ballet to end.

I’ve got an enormous pile of matinee jacket packets from my years as a wool shop owner, and some I’ve made more than once, like the orange one on the top photo, to the one down the bottom here. 

As I knit them, I add them to the bag that will be donated to someone.  I hope someone likes them.  We do these things for ‘charity’ and who knows if ‘charity’ wants them?

Hope you’re having a good day.  Things are fine, I have one sick child home yesterday and today but the good news is NETBALL IS FINISHED!! So I have one less place that I need to sit and wait. 

See you soon!
