Oh, I finished Boo’s leg warmers, I know I was hoping to make them into legwarmersocks but it went wrong. At a critical point she fell and bumped her head on the cupboard. I threw the kniting aside and left it, I didn’t go back to it for days and of course as I was sort of making it up and adapting a pattern when I went back to it I was hopelessly lost…. I tried to work it out, but then I had to give up and unravel the whole sock part. It was sad but in the cricumstances for the best.
Now I need to make mittens. Her hands freeze whenever she’s outside. I’m not sure if I’m up to making them with thumbs or not. It seems like a pretty tricky proposition in view of her size. First I need to find a pattern online. I thought I might make it u as I went along but I think it’ll be less stressful if I just follow a pattern…..
And then I’ll make legwarmers that match her mittens which will be a nice natural wool in a lovely deep purpley colour. And maybe a hat too, she has a cool new hat that she got at the NCT Nearly New Sale but I’d like a girly one too, or at least a little more girly than the one she has.
And maybe after that some armwarmers as previously promised…..
But of course Christmas is round the corner and I still need to make Grandmas cushion cover, the girls little presents, the curtains for the lounge, finish the sofa covers…. maybe I need to prioritise. Mittens come top I think as Boo doesn’t have any. The Grandmas cushion cover. Then i might make the girls some nice mittens too…..
