Hey hey it’s the weekend!
This week has contained many work related stresses so I’m glad to be off for the weekend.
Today I received an order of Stylecraft Special yarn I placed online so I have lots of yarn now, in fact I really have to organise some proper storage for it all. If I unravel it and ball it up tightly that may save space but it’s time consuming doing that. I have the children all day tomorrow while my husband goes off and does exciting film/photography stuff but I’ll get time on my own on Sunday when (hopefully) he’ll be up to taking them out for a few hours. I’ve been itching to get my living room tidied and get access to the cupboards containing my craft books so maybe I’ll do that then … or do some craft 🙂
Day 7: Eyelet lace
This is a really bright fun square that involved tr (UK) and ch stitches. The pattern is made up of a foundation row and then 4 rows that are repeated twice.
Day 8: Anemone
This pattern is made up of 7 rounds of dc and tr. I’ve chosen a dark background colour so that the pink ‘flower’ in the middle stands out.
Knitting in the news
On Wednesday night I was reading a newspaper online and discovered a story about the ‘Saltburn Yarnbomber‘ – an anonymous creator of a woollen display showing various wool Olympic figures such as a rower, swimmer, gymnast and many more.
This 50 yard scarf was stretched along the railings by the seaside in Yorkshire, England. So much work has obviously gone into making this, I wonder how long it will stay there and if anyone will ‘rescue’ it?
This whole ‘yarnbombing’ craze has got me thinking, maybe I could attempt a mini-yarnbomb with a bit of crochet.
Well whatever crafting you have planned, I hope you all a good weekend and I look forward to seeing the results on your own blogs.
