Hello there, so nice to read your comments and hi to some new followers, sorry if I haven't popped into your blogs yet but I do plan to when I have a mo.

I made a little collage of the Boneyard shawl I mentioned a couple of posts ago. I have simply loved knitting this shawl and despite not being 100% sure of King Cole Riot yarn I am quite pleased with the way it has come out. Not bad for an amateur!
So here goes...
Ok, so you might be asking why such crappy photo's Penelope? Well, his nibs (aka Andy) has take the blessed camera to work again today and I feel a little
I was also fortunate enough to be given some fun machine knitted cotton square samples from a friend of mine who has a lovely vintage clothes and accessories shop. She thought I could recycle them into something useful...
So last night I got out a crochet hook and some white cotton and hooked away to create a border around these squares. I got excited thinking I could make a large blanket for when we go camping in a couple of weeks time but unfortunately soon realised that they are not the same size, so these 4 will make nice stocking fillers at Christmas time. A colourful cotton face cloth for all those on my list to make something for xox
Thank you all for your lovely congrats on Alice being voted onto school council and for my EverythingAlice book I won, it arrived in the post on Wednesday and is a true delight. I've also been sewing some more A-line skirts for myself and am loving being friends with my sewing machine again. Blessings of the biggest kind this weekend to you and yours. Have fun and see you soon xox
