Well, being Sunday, it's the time for my progress report....and despite achieving a few new goals, I don't really have anything spectacular to show.
This is my start on Oor Flap Muts....I won't lie....I'm afraid there's been a lot of holding my breath and..... ashamedly..... some swearing. The ear flaps (oor flaps) were a relative breeze, ooh, and I learnt how to knit i-cord ....but making the hat with a two-colour Italian cast-on off the pre-made ear flaps, was fairly dreadful, and getting the first row into the cast-on was like nothing else.....but I made it out the other side unscathed!
Because it is brioche knitting, it is totally reversible...so really quite clever.
That's it for YOP related work....I am chuntering along with a few other things, but they aren't really project work.
We went out for a glorious walk late this afternoon, I took loads of photos to try and catch the colours, but it was sooo hard. The evening sun just made everything glow, and I even did a little tree-hugging which I've become accustomed to on a weekend. Some of the trees were totally moss-covered and were so soft to touch.
And just to finish, these are the legs of middle who represented his school in a county cross country running competition....he did well.....and he got pretty muddy too!
Hope that you've all had good weeks, thank you so much for your constant encouragement and general 'loveliness'....its like having your own personal cheerleading team....much appreciated!
