I’ve finished the main body of the blanket, it’s turned into quite a monster! It’s difficult to lay flat. I’m now working on the boarders, I hope to finish it soon.
My first gluten free Christmas cake. I wonder what it will be like? This will be our first gluten free Christmas.
We found my beaded Christmas tree in the loft, I finally brought a dome. I dusted it off & rehung the decorations.
My final technicians present, a silk & wool mix cowl.
Luna & I wish everyone a very Happy Christmas & New Year.
This is the second shawl I made for my technicians, using the same beaded arches shawl pattern by the knackered psycho , this times yarn was the calm after the storm from Mothy & the Squid.
Again I’m sure the yarn name resonated with them.
Neatly packaged, with another hand made cherry blossom.
The first on the shawls I made for my technicians. The yarn is from mothy & the squid, the calm before the storm. The pattern is by the knackered psycho.
I liked the yarn name as with no dedicated technician for physics, it often feels like this.
All prettied up ready for giving.
It’s fantastic to say thank you to others. It was my chance to say thank you to the lovely Claire for sending me Christmas & ‘un birthday ‘ surprises.
I dyed the yarn my self & the pattern was from the knackered psycho ( thank you shawl)
I’m pleased to say the shawl arrived safely & Claire loved it.
I’ve finished & blocked another shawl, the Nidhogg shawl by knackered psycho.
It has an unusual texture & an asymmetrical shape , like a dragons wing. Apparently Nidhogg was a Norse dragon, who chewed the root of the world tree, seemingly gnawing at the corpses of the most undesirable villains of Norse society at the same time.
It will soon be finding at new owner, when I catch up with my friend at the weekend.
It 2/3 done, & still working away ( crochet & marking kids work), it’s looking pretty now & quite warm to snuggle under.
