It won't last.
I can hear a storm rumbling away over Bath. It has been doing that for a few hours but a few of my neighbours are still chancing it and have the barbeques going.
I hope they have a plan"B".
I took advantage of the sunlight to take a photo of a bag that I made with my jumble sale carpet wool.
It was not intended to be a bag. I was trying to make a knitted rug, but the fabric was not firm enough. It was a little too harsh for a blanket and anyway that sounds like a project that would take too long! I have lined it, but not put a handle as I know it would get out of shape carried by a handle.
The inspiration came from Nicky Epstein's book "Knitting Block by Block" which has great ideas for knitting all sorts of things from blocks. Great for a project that you can pick up every now and then or travel with and fabulous for folks like me who are impatient or have short attention spans!
I made some crocheted bowls. They have very little practical use but were fun to do. Again I was trying to crochet flat circles to join together for a mat, but as I was making the pattern up as I was going along and I am not an experienced crocheter, the edges kept curling up.
So I made bowls instead.
I could not resist this little beauty.
My neighbours are too polite to say anything to me about my strange habit of crouching on the grass taking close ups of the daisies! They are quite remarkable though.
