Walking and crafting in blue

Posted on Updated on

Out walking in a local country park last week was a very pretty experience. I was surrounded by swathes of chicory. I’ve never seen it before and it was a different vista to the one other time I’d been to the park only two weeks before when there were only pretty green fields and trees.

Then back at home I finished knitting another baby knit, coincidentally in blue. Although this was very sweet to knit, I’d procrastinated over the sewing up (not my favourite part of making garments). Luckily I persevered though as the family baby arrived on Saturday, a month early! This little boy could be in blue for a while. I’d already made a preemie size waistcoat for him (in case he came before time) and then this was a 0-3 month size knit. For once, gambling on making a preemie garment worked out. In the past I’ve made preemie size items and then babies have been born already too big for them, but the right size for newborns.

I have been taking advantage of some great summer yarn sales and now have a new pile of projects to add to the pile I had in progress! I keep telling myself crafting is therapeutic . I’ll be in ‘therapy’ a long time then. Back again soon …

    Those flowers that open your post are lovely and that little sweater is very impressive!

      Thank you tierneycreates. Just found out the previously made waistcoat for the same baby is still too big – looks like he might be wearing my home knits for even longer than expected. He is so tiny, so vulnerable!

    The chicory is pretty – thanks for sharing πŸ™‚ And love the baby sweater! Hoping the little one is doing well – I’m sure he and his parents are glad for some warm knits to wrap him up with!

      Thank you quiteayarnblog. Baby doing ok so far, think the knits will come in handy.
