We're living in the aftermath of Mum's 90th last week (previous post) but things are getting back to normal, especially now that DH has returned to the new term now. It's lovely to have him home, but it's good to get on with things.
So, today I set to work on the old garden tool shed, giving it a coat of paint. If the weather holds, tomorrow it will have a second coat, and I plan to make some bright curtains, too.
|After one coat|
I've used Zig Zag sock yarn (4 ply) which is very reasonable, compared to others, at £4.something per 100g, and I should get this pair of slouch socks from one ball.
I did start this lacy pair but found learning to knit on 4dpns as well as the pattern, just too complicated. Also, since the yarn knits up in stripes, the lace didn't show up. I might try these ones later, in a plain colour where the lace would be more visible.
I finished the ten strips of bunting in time, for friends to take to Uganda, to do fabric painting on, with children in the orphanage our church supports.
These are some of the kids and a few of the team, when they arrived a couple of weeks ago.
Anyway, I'd better sign off for now and get to bed, and just encourage you to pop over here to Julia's, to see what WOYWW is all about, and see what other crafting has been going on. I'll try to visit as many folks there as I can, by the weekend.
Have a great week, Chris xx
