Hello crafty friends, I am feeling happy it is Friday. Why? Well I'm getting my hair cut today. I know, no big deal. I hate getting hair cuts like I hate going to the dentist. I am sure there is some deep psychological reason why, but I haven't figured it out. I hate it even more now that I've got the kids, because pregnancy and the aftermath did awful things to my hair. I had a blond fro for a while. However I seriously need a new style. Or rather, any style. Anyway, I digress. By the time my American friends read this, I'll have a new do.
Here's what I've wrapped up this week.........
The slippers!! They are done, felted, and being worn as I type this.
Here's the info:
Pattern: Felted Slippers
Wool: Patons Classic Wool in a denim blue (100g) and a self striping colour (maybe 30g?) and some Fishermans' Wool in cream (mayb 30g?).
I like them. I ran out of the blue yarn and the striped yarn, which is why the left slipper has cream in it. I actually intended to put one square of cream on the back so I knew which was left, which was right, but there is a bit of
cream on the side too.
Even with the different yarns, they felted pretty much the same, hurray! Hopefully these will last!
I also finally finished the toddler pull over for KAS I was working on. It is knit in Hayfield (I think?) 25% wool, 75% acrylic. I finally finished off the jumbo 400g ball I had. Hurray!
Lastly, I had a little sewing project on Thursday. My girls attend Rainbow's once a week. This past Tuesday was Burn's Night, and the girls were asked to wear something tartan to the meeting. Yikes! I should know by now, having lived this long in Scotland, to have tartan things handy at all times. Oh wait, I DO have some tartan fabric.
I whipped up these tartan and purple flowers, and just used a safety pin to attach them to their tops. Job done.
That's what I've been up to this week. Here are the hops:
