New project

 

I've been given a bag of assorted chunky yarn. I'm making a scarf and hat set with this as I love the colour. Most of the other yarn is in more subtle colours and tweedy looking. With it I'm thinking of making hats and short cravat style scarves as there are only a few balls of each whereas there is a lot of the stuff pictured above.

I have to say that Beano doesn't approve of knitting as he can't sit on my knee when I'm waving  long needles about, he prefers crochet as there is more room for him. This doesn't mean he goes short of cuddles though, he either sits on Steve's knee or I stop knitting!

I love that colour; it features quite a lot in my wardrobe. Poor Beano, ousted from your lap by the long needles!

What a super gift, the colour is fabulous and the texture looks great.

Nice of Beano to accommodate himself to your new project. That's one of my favourite colours too.

I have a cat with the same attitude.
Easy fix, just buy some circular needles, they don't take up much room at all and aren't waving about.

Beautiful colour yarn. I laughed at your comment about Beano very like my own sweet dog Mickey.

Beano seems to have you and Steve well trained! Lol

Moved again

We had no wifi at our last mooring spot so I couldn't post. It was a lovely spot and we were near people we know so Beano had a catch-up...
