I've finally finished and blocked the Liesl cardigan, all I need to do is add the buttons and then it will be ready to wear.
I'm knitting another pair of baby socks in the hand dyed organic wool. I'm supposed to be making stuff for an Etsy shop as part of the Green Parent Team and it's a case of fitting it all in between the countless other tasks demanding my attention!
The book I'm slowly reading is written by this guy and is thought provoking and challenging. It takes me back to my childhood where wandering, den building and adult free bike rides around the countryside by the time I was ten years old were the norm. The kids of today are not being given the chance to access that kind of freedom and it is so sad.
I also received my Simply Knitting magazine in the post and inside as usual were some freebies. One was a pair of bamboo needles and the other was this package:
DH placed the coin to signify the size and depth of the package!
Give it a squish and ...
... Voila! One ball of fluffy stuff!
So ladies if you're tripping over your stash and want to make it look smaller than it really is then the secret is vacuum sealed bags!!
I (DH) felt it a shame that this lovely Liesl cardigan that DW has been knitting was not shown in it's true colour, so I retook the photograph in daylight and the result is closer. I must try to get the white balance sorted in our room lighting!
