So, we’re having a lovely time in Bayeux, and will be very sorry to be leaving!
I have plenty of photos and information to post on my return, but as promised I thought I’d send through the projects I took with me… Mum is a first-rate quilter, sewer and has now taken up knitting as well (I’m sure it has nothing to do with me though!)
She made me this fabulous project bag which I use lots and lots – and have packed to capacity with bits and bobs from my stash that I thought I would like to use up…
Firstly some lovely Rowan Pure Wool Aran that I have been saving up – I have had many ideas of what I would like to use this for – a hat or scarf, I’m not sure I’ve made my mind up yet!
Next some Crofter DK – I wanted to try this out so only bought a skein of each… My plan when going on holiday was to make some prototypes, let’s see what I have done with them when I get back home…
This Artesano Alpaca yarn I bought in Marbella, I have four skeins so that is plenty to make something yummy with – I so love to work with Alpaca, but this is much finer than I am used to!
Another Marbella purchase, some Filosofia Palma in the most beautiful colour schemes – perhaps some crochet jewellery or a set of rather stylish coasters… What will these become?
Finally some Sirdar Americana – I made a lovely shawl with this cotton, but they only had one skein left in this colourway so I bought it on impulse. What will the plans for this be?
What fabulous creations can you make with one skein?
