Both scarves will be up for sale on Etsy
shortly. I just need to make sure they are dry and measure them up for the description in the listing.
I have done some knitting, but just a little
Yes, that's right.. little. They are little sock shaped tree ornaments. I will need to weigh them down and I am thinking that perhaps a mintie or a small piece of chocolate will do.
On the spinning side of things, I haven't got anything new to show.. just something I spun a while ago but was having difficulty photographing.
The red wasn't coming out quite right. I finally managed to get a photo and so the yarn is now up on Etsy
. It's over 200g of a single ply yarn spun from Crown Mountain's hand painted Corriedale. I love the red red redness of it and am now wondering whether I should keep it for myself.I guess if I decide to make something with it I can always cancel the listing, and if it gets sold before then, I'll just have to get more of it to spin!
for one of my swaps I have made a little foldover envelope thing for keeping nappies wipes, bibs .. you name it. I don't know what to call it. A mum's pouch? It has a little compartment for some plastic utensils and plenty fo room for wipes and nappies and even a bib or two.
On the inside I lined it with some cotton batik fabric.
I hope the recipient likes it.. She has a child Alex's age, and so she will be, like me, carrying lots of wipes and nappies around with her.
Alex is well and very noisy now. He has worked out how to string words together and sometimes it all comes out as one big word like "tissuepaper" or "idoit"(I do it). Today I managed to get him some sunglasses from the Pumpkin Patch outlet store and he loves it. I guess it's the novelty of it. He likes putting them on and taking them off. It's cute to watch, but I think the novelty will wear off soon and it will be, like many of his toys, put aside. I hope he gets used to them though.
