There has been knitting and stitching aplenty in the house this week.
LHM has learned to cross stitch and has started on a Workbasket Hedgehog in…wait for it…blue! He has also re-learned his knitting skills and is working on a lovely scarf!
Grandma has knitted a footy scarf for LHM in gold and royal blue and has had a purple and pink striped one requested by the Little Princess. This will happen today!
I am almost half-way through throw rug number two, but it’s now too big to carry on the train so I started something new. While dragging my weary body through Spotlight the other day I threw a few balls of Cleckheaton wool in my shopping basket, picked up a free pattern and started to knit pattern number 37 from a great magazine called Knitting Essentials .
The magazine is free! free! free! and is available on the Spotlight website along with loads of free pattern goodness and we love that!
For my overseas viewers, Spotlight seems to be kind of like Michael’s or Joanne’s perhaps my overseas Aussie friends can confirm this.
