Yarn Along and Craft On
I finished the little shrug for Nola.
She doesn't stay still long enough for me to take a good picture of it.
She is such a busy, busy girl at the moment.
I tried all the tricks!!!
Distraction with ladybird stickers...
Cloud dough.... this was a messy one...:)
My soaking "fleece in the grease"
"Hey what's that over there. I must investigate!"
I'm really happy with how it turned out considering I was winging my way through the whole project, holding it up to her to size every few inches :)
The yarn was a beautiful gift from Amy.
I love using natural yarns with beautiful colourways. Just watching the colours fall off the needles makes knitting a delight!
Okay here's a sad story.... Tani put the shrug in the washing machine the second night after I'd finished it.
...I'm actually wincing typing this out :(
I "rescued" it from the dryer :S while it was still wet enough to re block.
Tani was so sorry.
The next day it started to roll up a little at the back so I blocked again and although it is a little on the fuzzy side it's pretty much back to it's original shape.
On the positive... those crocheted borders are really meshed in now, there's no pulling them off Nola Jo however hard you try :)
I haven't had much time to read. We've been pretty busy and I'm using all my extra time to work on commissions for my shop!
Happy busy :)
