I've been very productive over the past couple of weeks. You'd be amazed at how many spare hours there are in the day when you don't watch TV. Add to that the fact that you can use ibooks on your iphone to take patterns with you ANYWHERE!!! you can knit/crochet in the most inappropriate places. 5 crocheted soakers and a couple of pairs of lacy crochet knee high stockings from a pattern I found on the web but have since lost!! (and just found again!)
I've knitted 3 baby jumpers, including one of my own design and one with raglan sleeves. Made many unsuccessful attempts at longies (I am yet to master the knit in the round joining part....my last attempt saw me cut the cable of my circular needles down to 10cm trying to get the stitches to fit but still to no avail -something to work on!) But I did learn, long tail cast on, M1, SKPO and a couple of other random abbreviations which when translated to actual stitchery aren’t as complicated as they initially sound.
I've also been dabbling in water colour, felting using resists, oh, and crocheting a blanket in a pooey bile kind of coloured pure wool which by all reason should be on the top ten list of most fugly colours, but which, for some uncanny reason, I can't help loving....I know its ugly. I just can't help myself.
Excuse the picture quality, Its pretty gloomy here at the moment and the lighting really does nothing to demonstrate the delightful ugliness of that shade of...70's yellow, ocre, goldy....whatever.
