With the whole house upside down and huge amounts of dust everywhere, I adopted the route of least resistance and spent lots of time knitting and cuddling my little dog Tilly who has been upset by the upheaval. With no space to craft and everwhere so dusty and dirty, knitting is the only crafty pastime I've been able to indulge in. No point in trying to do any housework with all this going on - well that's my excuse anyway LOL
Here she is wearing her jumper and posing for the camera !
I've also knitted a couple of little shawls, well this one is a shawl which you can wear tied at the back and it just fills the neckline of a jacket, or over the shoulders in the usual way.
The other one is more of a cowl or collar and should have been knitted in the round on a circular needle, but my needle was too long, so I adjusted the pattern to be able to knit it on a pair of straight needles. It turned out OK and looks like the picture on the pattern anyway ! Hard to photograph well though, but at least you can get an idea of the lacy pattern.
Although the kitchen is not fully complete yet, at least my cooker and washing machine are in place and working, so life has suddenly got a whole lot easier, just got to wait for the builders to come back and replace skirting boards and do the final fixings and we should be back to some sort of normality. It's driven me crazy with no space to do my papercrafting.
Here's a piccie of my lovely new cooker, got to get used to using an electric hob though as I've had gas ones for most of my married life. Thanks for dropping by today, I hope to have some cards to share with you all very soon. There are a few challenges around which I want to enter and I need to get back to working on my DT projects as soon as I can.
