Makes and Shopping.

 Tilli happily watching me work in the sewing room today.
Having just recently made some fingerless gloves for a friend using wool instead of acrylic yarn I decided it was time for me to have a proper wool pair too. This is a different style to what I have done previously, made it up on the fly so to speak. I have made notes so I can do them again and will write them up as a pattern to share if people are interested I will post it. For this pair I have used four 4mm double pointed needles, knitted in the round and feltable wool 50 gram ball. Sorry, I do not know the brand I did not have the label on it.

The fabric underneath was bought from Spotlight. They have yesterday and today 30% off and with $20 in my pocket i thought i would try and see what I could get.
Success! I found this fabric duck cotton for $2 a metre so I bought the lot. 11.5 metres for $16 A perfect weight for the laundry bags. Needless to say this will be lining!


This is the package of FRIENDS gifts that my partner Illene received today. F, fingerless gloves, R rose scissor keep and scissors, I iron mat, E embellishments, buttons threaders and thread, N needles and notebook, D dyes and lastly S scarf. My partners favourite colours were green and pink. She was very happy with what I had made, and I had great fun.
