I finished 1 pair of wristwarmers last week - 1 to go for Xmas.
I also completed the knitting part of the mystery KAL - it was a scarflette and I now need to just add buttons.
Then there was the dishcloths - I finished 1 and then got 3/4 through a second, when I ran out of yarn!
I went to the shop to buy more to find they didn't have my colour. So I ummed and ahhed for a little while before deciding that I had followed so many people dying and spinning their own yarn that I would dye some white - yellow.
Excellent idea, except that in the dying process the yarn got somewhat tangled. To cut a long story short I then spent the best part of 7 hours untangling it!! Was it worth it for a dishcloth? No!! My husband told me he would have thrown it away - but I am not a giving up sort of person and once I had started and invested a couple of hours on it, I had to finish it so finish it I did!!
Then, when I was finishing the knitting (Grandmas favourite - so pretty much just garter stitch) I kept dropping stitches (I hardly ever do this but did it twice in this cloth :-( - weird).
It was not worth the time and stress - but it did end up the same colour and I have now completed the second dishcloth!!
I then decided to start a new project that I can continue in Somerset - hexipuffs!! These are great, easy to do, portable and use up lots of odds and ends. As you can see I have only just started and will need hundreds - so definitely a work in progress.
Other than knitting, I have also been able to make some progress on the roses with the cooler weather and the boys and me have made a start on the summer holiday project.
We are all going to Somerset this weekend so am hoping to make some progress on hexipuffs - probably not much else as most will be ending up as presents for mum - so better not knit them in front of her!!
