Despite the fact that I haven’t switched on my sewing machine for weeks, my days are still filled with bright colours.
I’ve continued on my mission of knitting warm and soft stuff for a little one,
socks for the big brother-to-be,
each one marked with a string of orange yarn,
and started on a requested tummy warmer for my daughter.
The yarn is Smart from Sandnes Ullvare and according to the receipt in the bag, the skeins have been in my stash since 1996. I have made a promise to myself not to buy yarn this winter; with a 15+ years of yarn in my stash that shouldn’t really be a problem, should it.
I did my last Make a Boob workshop of the year at Fellsgruppen for kreftrammede, a cancer patient organisation, on Tuesday, but forgot to ask permission to take pictures of the participants at work. It was so nice to sit down and do a little hand stitching that I continued when I came home. I’m still stitching faces, using some of the chaotic bead mixes in my boxes.
My guild meeting is coming up on Wednesday and it’s time to make another batch of triangles for the swap. I was very happy with the results from the 1. round of swapping.
And last but not least, a little colour studies with my grandson who is totally into mixing colours these days. We were making doors, or rather he was making doors and I played along. The Poster Art pens from Faber Castell are my favourites.
Have a wonderful week filled with colours!
