This week, I have finished the draught stopper AKA Sausage. Kid’s love it and want another one to play with! I don’t blame them, as I loved toying with it, too! I was right on spot thinking that I won’t have enough yarn, and I am glad I added a contrasting section in the middle, it would look less pretty I think, if it were just two sections.
I also has another side project. I knitted a beanie for my son when he was a toddler, I then added length to it, as it became too small, so that he could wear it longer. This winter, it got quite a large hole in it.
I hate the idea of throwing it out, as I quite liked it, and I love the yarn it’s made of (Champragne by Grignasco, a merino wool / silk blend). I wasn’t sure I could mend the hole, and I could not re-knit the crown as I have no yarn like this left. I stole the hat a couple of times for running and loved how snug it was on head, and how soft it was. So I decided to turn in into a headband for my running sessions, as it can be quite windy here, and I hate wind in my ears.
Now I am now back to working on my large WIPs, of which there are three at the moment.
Firstly, the table runner that I haven’t touched for a few weeks now. I was glad I had made some notes, as I was a bit clueless when I pick it up.
Secondly, still working on Raspberry, Cream and Chocolate. Still quite long road ahead of me… There probable will be changes to planned colour scheme, as I think I might run out of yarn and getting more is not really an option.
I also did more swatching for the second red dress… Still deciding on how it will look like, but a bit less lost now than I was last week.
Well, that’s my crafting week. I hope to get a good move on these projects next week.
