I'll start off with a photo of some of my hobbies.
knitted pocket dolls
Cross Stitch lavender bags
thats a start for everyone to follow.
Your knitted trousers made me laugh, Pat. Are they doll size or person size?
Hi Fidget. Are you having trouble sleeping?
The trousers were for a little tot 18 months old. The pattern was discovered by her mother on line. It was a tricky pattern because the Norwegian person who wrote it had different abbreviations to the English notations. There were quite a few questions and answers on line from other knitters who had the same problems that I had.
Sorry about sideways photo, I don't know how to fix it.
the little one is the same person Ive been making hats and dresses for this winter.
Yes, I think I ate something that disagreed with me last night. I have a long car trip today, as I'm taking mum to see Highgrove gardens. No cameras allowed in, so I will just have to have a good memory.
I love your paintings, I wish I could illustrate like that.
The toddler pants are adorable. I can't knit . Do you do yarnbombing? In Fremantle in WA, at south beach, all the lamp posts have knitted covers. It brightens the place up.
That's odd. It straightened itself up. Oh well, I can't complain.
No I've not done that, but I've seen it on TV.
I have also got a spinning wheel for getting the mohair from our angora goats into knittable yarn. My craft-art room is a mess with painting desk, shelves of yarn, completed items, patterns, etc. etc.
I hope you and your mother enjoy Highgrove.
Have a good afternoon , Pat.
Thanks for starting this, Pat. Lovely to see what you've been doing... and I agree with Fidget, those toddler trousers are fab. Shame my granddaughters are too old for those...
When I'm feeling brave I'll photograph some of my craft stuff.
They're great trews Pat. My neice would wear those and she's 25!!!! She's so uncool she's cool. I haven't knit for ages. I go through phases of cross stitch, knitting, patchwork quilting, painting, resting..... oh and there's a terrible lot of thinking goes on too.
I have the blocks for a quilt which I did many years ago in a log cabin pattern. I dug them out recently and they've been on the bed in the spare room for weeks and every time I go in I rearrange them into a different design. Too many choices!
I have some cross stitch somewhere that I started about 30 years ago
Well it's raining today you said....go and get it!
