Such Happy Days : sunshine and sewing, crochet and crafting
The cutting was the worst: fibres and fur flew everywhere and I had to hoover all the time and scrub the fur fibres off the kitchen table. Hope I didn't breathe too many in and have had an old metallic taste in the mouth every since but I digress, on the whole it was BLISS. Friday I also took girls to school and collected shopping orders and was oh so HAPPY to collect my angora wool package from the post office! Photo to follow, it will be my next project.
On Friday I also finished JJ's jumper in terms of ribbing and sewed most of the ends in, doing the remainder on Saturday. Photos follow shortly I hope, when he will model it for me at last....
The daffs came to full bloom see? AND I treated us to a basket of hyacinths too : blue ones! Oh happy days, I love the Spring.
Finally I had something to eat and got stuck in with more fur- coat sewing. Shoulder seams, setting in sleeves, side seams etc.
We're having a really UNUSUAL week next week with NO SCHOOL.
Miss E is on work experience with Critical Power Supplies and Miss Y is on a week outward bound with school in Wales. AND JJ - this is not so much fun- is going to Malaysia for 4 days. So it'll be just little me, the dogs and a little bit of Miss E .
Next time I'll use more stitches, use a smaller hook: 3.5 mm probably and work it as a tube in the round.
The yarn is Anchor magicline in ''style'' which gives a striped effect.
And more HAPPINESS in a new CROCHET magazine for UK!!!! Have you seen this yet?
