I am doing too much at once…I am sure you have all done the same from time to time…? These are some batts I have created as a gift for a very generous customer of mine, I hope she enjoys spinning them. They are full of deliciousness, all hand dyed by me.
This pretty handspun was a reject from a spin a cardi pack, the pink was a bit, erm shocking! I overdyed the spun yarn with a weak night blue solution and it has worked really well. I now love this yarn and look forward to knitting it up.
I am also in a sewing mood, and have almost cut out this pretty pattern. I love sewing, and I love vintage patterns which seem to go together so well. Beautiful tailoring and a gorgeous drape and cut of the fabric. This pattern has bound buttonholes, I am not sure I will be brave enough to do those as my machine does lovely buttonholes. I wonder if that is why the pattern uses bound buttonholes, I don’t expect sewing machines did an auto buttonhole when that pattern was produced.
I just love these socks, from the Knitlove Club, beads on socks are such fun, I have started the second one and I will finish it as I just adore the pattern so much. I did a lovely stretchy Guernsey Cast on, which gives a very pretty picot edge.
and also on the needles is this mindless stocking stitch, I just had to show the stitch markers, I bought them from Fripperies and Bibelots, she has some gorgeous stitch markers for sale in her shop 🙂 I just had to buy these tennis balls as I just love Wimbledon fortnight!!
So now, after being entertained by Federa on Centre Court this afternoon (by entertained read scared he was going to lose so i went cleaned my oven), I am now trying to get this place straight so I can enjoy the next fortnight of play. I have to say that I enjoy the men’s tennis the most…
Time to go and get myself something to eat I think, oh and that’s another story, I am on a low fat diet, losing weight slowly, a pound a week which is good as it soon mounts up. Unfortunately, my gall bladder decided to play up big time and I ended up in casualty a couple of weeks ago. I had a scan last week and I have multiple small stones which are just the right size to get stick in the tube, ouch, I mean OUCH!! So, no fat at all for me, well none that I can see! I am in constant pain from it and don’t sleep too well but I am seeing a surgeon on the 28th and hopefully will have an operation to remove the offending article soon after. By keyhole surgery I hope.
Now about those elderflowers that I aught to go and pick…
