Chocks-away! Good friends and a craft fair

Posted on Updated on

I forgot to post a picture of the finished knitted baby hat made in in Sirdar DK speckle a couple of weeks ago.  To me it looks like a old fashioned pilot’s hat, thus the ‘chocks away’.  The pattern called for i-cords but I left them off as it’s a first size and I worry about ties tangling on new babies.  Not modelled on a baby makes the hat look a little lifeless so I hope you have vision!

cardiI was having a little panic with the amount of knitting and crafting projects outstanding and a VERY good friend has sent me a pile of hand knitted items to gift as I wish.  What a FRIEND!  You know who you are xxx  Here’s just one, first size baby cardigan that is going to a very good home.  Knitted in self patterning Deramores Studio yarn.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Yesterday, Saturday,  my weekly craft group took part in a Craft Fair in South London.  I wasn’t able to attend but some of my creations made it to the table courtesy of my fellow crafters.  (Last time I was there and helped promote our group on others’ behalfs.) A little snippet of what was of offer – ipad stands, vintage cotton reel keyrings, freehand embroidery pictures, felt mice, zentangle cards.  Creative Loops is our group name and there is such a variety of skills amongst us.  A couple of members are professionals and use their skills for their career, others are just hobbyists.

Today is a day of rest for me, apart from making a huge pot of vege soup and taking a stroll in the autumn sunshine I have done little.  There is still a pile of WIPs…
