Not the knitting I was talking about in my last post (not even the eggs) but I do have a bit of knitting to show for the last few days absence...
I had a request for a simple knitted hat from my Grandmother when I was in Cornwall over Easter. Her birthday is at the end of April and at 85 she doesn't feel that there is much she still wants. Every year we repeat the same conversation, where I ask what she would like and she says nothing and eventually we come to some conclusion where I can make her something that keeps us both happy!
A hat was something I was fairly confident I could do and I am very happy with what I have ended up with...I used the pattern from last minute knitted gifts, that I have used before, along with some lovely soft yarn that I discovered here for only £2 a ball. One ball was enough to make the hat and to make a bonus flower brooch that she can attach if she likes or wear totally separately. I think it will meet with her approval...although nothing is guaranteed!
My other knitting is progressing, I am sort of hoping I might finish it in my lunch break at work tomorrow but also think that might be a bit optomistic....a bit like my ideas of posting here last week were. Sleepovers, laundry and parties all happened and I also managed to keep up with my photo a day but something had to give and Easter egg hunts was it, maybe the photos will do for next year?
