I became a Follower of a very nice blog today called Nannynotes2u www.nannynotes2u.blogspot.com as I was just browsing through some various tutorials, and blogs, and she has a great little tutorial for a little girl's bag... go have a look. She made it without a pattern, and she explains it really well.
I am inspired to have a go at making a couple this weekend perhaps for my two little granddaughters who are 5 and 3. They could take them to Church with their pretty dresses.
I have been feeling a bit better today, so I might even do some more knitting while still recuperating. I recently bought some really interesting "wool" while we were on a holiday at a seaside town here in South Australia called Victor Harbor. Here are some photos of the "wool" and the shawl/scarf that it makes
It has a variety of interested wools, and threads to knit with on large needles, Size 10mm. It comes to you all wrapped up tight in a ball, but oh my goodness, as you knit it.. it becomes more and more tangled!!
I spent a huge amount of time untangling it every time I had knitted a few rows... so in the end I found the very end of the wool, and wound it backwards onto some stiff cardboard. As you can see I still have a big knot to untangle, although I am on the home stretch with my black and silver one now. Yay!! I love knitting in front of television in the Winter. I hate to have idle hands.. do you? I am happy with how this is looking, and then once it is knitted.. you go back and stitch by hand the little knots and bits that might be sticking out to make it look neater.
Hope that you have some sunshine and blessings in your day today too.
Hugs from me to you xx
