It's been a busy weekend here and very little crafting has been done, apart from the completion of a baby blanket (at long last!) I'm actually getting a little bit fed up of knitting and crocheting baby items, even though I haven't done loads. So much so that I am still tackling a cabled cardie I started about 3 weeks ago. I normally rattle off cable really quickly because I love doing it, but I have been distracted with doing other things,so I think I might need to have a bit of a rest. Instead I have now finished the crocheted baby blanket I've been making since records began...really, there is nothing worse than endless, repetitive trebles, row upon row upon row.... unless it's row upon row of garter stitch! But Friday night saw it's completion. Hurrah!
Another cardie was completed a few weeks ago, in a lovely variegated wool I have had in my stash for quite a long time. I did promise a photo several blogs ago but I have only just got round to uploading it to my puter (I'm, such a slacker!)
In other news, we had a fab afternoon of messy play last week. An hour, some paint, a paper plate, some googly eyes and an egg carton later we produced this:
Much fun was had, and it was nice to come up with a use for at least some of the stash of egg boxes I have (that I keep forgetting to take back to the market!) They make good palettes for poster paint as well, incidentally.
Til next time :)
