Finished the first Christmas bag (for my sister), but it still needs to be lined. Also the instructions call for a fancy button, but I’m leaning towards a couple of plain satchel fastenings.
Also some pics of double-knitting, which I larned masel on a trip to Ireland recently. It’s just a practice piece. I’ve put together some designs for baby blankies, one of which is just on the needles but there’s no urgency to complete.
I have also decided to make spectacle cases for Mum and MIL – both occasionally wear glasses and are always losing them. So I got some cheap cases at the weekend and have already knitted a cover for one in Paton’s Lush in Autumn, a bright red-yellow-purple mix. Try losing that. The second is half-complete. I may do a mobile phone cosy for SIL.
My friend’s daughter has become fascinated by unicorns. And guess what pattern appeared in the last issue of Crochet??! Must start pull-caking the chenille. Wish I could remember what size hook I used last time.
And it turns out Friday is not a training day as I’d thought, but a real, honest-to-goodness day off!! So I’ll go into town and get some supplies at the Bullring – lining fabric, fasteners, maybe craft glue – and probably Abraham’s Santa present.
