Spring

NaKniCromo done !

Posted on Updated on

The Ravelry challenge is over today.  To finish what I started –

 

Day 30 – 30th March 2017 – what crafts would I like to learn? There must be a whole host of undiscovered crafts out there, ones I have never had a whiff of!   I can think of a few I am not interested in but there must be so many more and I look forward to finding them.

Day 31 – today – end results – two completed baby jackets, both photographed recently, three quarters of a cardigan for me, also photographed in progress – that’s one thing I had really hoped to complete!  I have sewn as well as knitted – I made felted doughnuts – 10 large, 10 small, 4 embroidery hoops with freehand machine embroidery and hand stitching, a french stick bag – oh I haven’t photographed that yet – that’s for me to take to our house in France.  It’s taken 10 years of saying ‘I really could do with some kind of long bag to keep our bread in!  I have semi-sorted my yarn stash, been shocked at how much I had and why I purchased a lot of it.  I’ve sold 11 lots of yarn in online auctions and gifted two bags of crafting things to charity. All in all my crafting world at home has been attacked and it felt good.

Spring has sprung here in the UK.  Perhaps a lot of this sorting out has been a little bit of a Spring Clean!  I made an awful mess along the way!
