Hello world!

So, here goes blogging, days in the life of me…..!

So what’s been happening?

Completed projects this week: baby blanky, cardi,mitts and beanie hat for new arrival yesterday (Welcome Ollie, congrats Emma)!

On-going good works:

Aran jumper for son number 1 (recently back from Brazilian travels and feeling the cold) – not too old at 26 for a mummy hand-knit!

Crochet cushion cover for shabby-chic-ing my living room (starting to create a very cottagey feel in there)!

I’ve searched my stash and identified enough yarn to start my draught excluder for the said living room (cottagey feel includes genuine draughts from the floor boards)!

Is it me, or are sausage dog draught excluders going to be the next big thing?

Happily also, the  summer collection of tea cosies (developed through knitting therapy during recent illness- similar to basket weaving, I guess) have now been passed on to loving homes.  Now pursuing ideas for Christmas /winter type cosies, to add to Christmas hamper presents.
