End of Easter Break... and most working people are back to the grindstone.
Luckily for me, Stew is home all week.
Brylee is spending the day with a girlfriend at Rainbow's End Amusement Park, it's her friend's Birthday.
Steve has gone back to work... so that leaves the rest of us at home.
I think Stew, Griffin and I are going to Sylvia Park at some point today.
I can't even remember why!
Now, how about I show you what knitting I got up to yesterday?
Yep, I will...
So I modified the pattern a bit, and the second attempt looks a bit better. It's still not quite right, so I will be trying another modified version soon.
I really don't like it when a pattern doesn't look right, particularly when you trust the pattern given is correct! Makes me kinda crabby.
I am starting to really giggle with all the guesses that have been coming through on WHAT I am knitting!
NO ONE HAS GUESSED! *smiles*
Right, I'm gunna go do 'stuff'... and have a nice day one hopes.
KELLY: No, I'm not making Puppy Blankets or a Wall Hanging.
ENZ: Nope, not a Tote Bag either.
ANON: Ahhh, not cushions!
As for WHEN I will reveal my 'secret project'... well that won't be for a while as it's going to take quite a while to actually get it finished!
It's NOT small.
Here's a list of the guess's so far:
Felted Wall Hanging, Penis Warmer!, Dog Coat, Shawl, Footstool, Slippers, Socks/Bedsocks, Mug Rugs, Blanket, Book Cover, Dishcloths, Flannels, Pot Holder, Knee Rug, Felted Floor Rug, Swatch Book, Girls Pads!, Jumper, Cardigan, Covers For Trees(yarn bombing), Giant Stuffed Toy, Stuffed toys, Clowns, Teddys, Tote Bag, Cushions, Puppy Blankets.
As you can see, lots of ideas. NONE right. *smiles* I might have to give a prize to the person who does guess it right!
RIGHTY HO. We have been out and about ... I got a new 'pencil case' from Smiggle to hold all my knitting what-have-you like pens, pins, crochet hooks and the like. Also picked up a few more balls of wool in the sale bins.
So I've now got plenty to be going on with.
I am SURPRISED! While I was out two of you guessed right!
BLONDIE AND CHRISTINE.... you both guessed a chair cover. And that is what I am making.
A very bright, colourful cover for the old Wingback Chair I got from the Hospice Shop a while ago.
Michele: I don't have a pattern, I'm just going to join blocks together and hopefully 'fit' it over the chair.
BLONDIE & CHRISTINE: Addresses please, I shall send you both a little something in the post.
ABOVE: My new Smiggle case. Pretty.
ABOVE: Stew fixing the catch on the cabinet ... with 'help' from Dante.
End of Day: a lovely day! It was nice to go shopping with Stew in tow for a change. I got some knitting done tonight. No sewing though. Well, there is always tomorrow.
