I’ve been ill! I’m better now so I’m just checking in quickly to let you know I’m still alive (I mean, not like you’ve been waiting agog) and to show you a quick picture of what I’ve been working on while I’ve not been well. Note to Dad – do not click on 'read more' below, as if this comes off the needles in a reasonably coherent whole I will be giving it to you for Christmas. Note to readers: you mean you haven’t started on your Christmas presents yet? Shame on you. (Joke).
It's a peacock! On a mitten!
It’s a mitten. I’m scared to do the thumb but God, I love stranded knitting, it’s great. I don’t know if there’s a twelve step group for mitten obsessives but I think there should be one. Have you seen how many amazing mitten patterns there are in the world? I watched three episodes of Celebrity Coach Trip back to back (on the TV choice thingy) while knitting this – see, I told you I was ill. While someone who was once in Eastenders was controversially flashing someone who sometimes appears in Nuts in a German beer spa, I was beadily concentrating on my wraps and pondering colour dominance. It’s not often you watch a programme where getting the Chuckle Brothers to participate seems quite a coup for the producers, and I think this fact alone should give anyone wishing to recommission Celebrity Coach Trip pause.
Hello! Welcome to my blog about sewing, clothes, crochet, knitting, and generally trying to live in a crafty and conscious way. Generally you can assume if it stays still long enough I've tried to either French seam it or poke it with a crochet hook.
