A portrait of my boys once a week for a year.



Some rainy day craft & concentration from both.  Was so good to see them get stuck in & they managed the weaving very well.

Almost Caught Back Up

Had dropped off a little on my quilt.  But this week with the boys back at school, I had a little time & inspiration to get into it again.  This is a couple of weeks worth but not last weeks quite yet.  It's coming along though & I am quite pleased with the result to date.

Stuart's Socks


Socks this week are for Stuart.  Thought I better get onto some before winter.  He loves the hand knits for work.

The yarn is Nako Boho yarn.  We recently got it in at work.  A whole new range of 15 colours.

I did a fleegle heel again but although they fit quite well they are bunching at the ankle on top of his foot.  It's folding on itself.  Odd but oh well.  He won't care.  He treats socks rough.  I did manage to get them to match pretty darned well too!

Challenge Completed

I find myself trying new things with my crafting.  I have to continually challenge myself, even if it isn't something I will do again.  It's nice to learn something different.

So I had a cute beanie in my Ravelry queue for a bit.  A free pattern too can you believe.  The Baa-ble Hat.

So on the weekend I got to it.



Two days & I had turned it out.  Am quite pleased with it.  I had never done colourwork before & never really done a knitted pattern from a chart.  They always scared me as did working with multiple balls of yarn that were going to annoy me a lot when they got tangled & stuff.  So I figured a beanie was a good place to start & it went well & I enjoyed it & can now say I have tried 2 new things!

Go Me!  lol
