Job Done


Hoorah! A UFO finished. I like this summer top that I have just finished. The colour is dull but will soon be lifted with trousers, shorts or even hot pants! Whoo! I don’t think so! I wore hot pants in the 60’s and don’t think they work the second time around. Well that’s my excuse!

I will post a picture of me wearing the finished top when I am brave enough to wear it!



The yarn was really good to work with and knit up quite fast. I’d bought it on Bury Market about two years ago. Not only a UFO complete but a stash buster as well. Ok so now I need to replenish my stash which is always an excuse to shop





imageYet again the text got separated and lost from the picture in my last blog. I MUST try harder!

The market that I had visited was Bury, Lancashire. The market is massive but I was hampered by very heavy rain. However, I managed to find some gorgeous yarn to add to my stash but hopefully I will get to knit that sometime soon. Look out for a silver grey Merino wool!

Today I have been working on a fabric bag that I bought in Cornwall.I hope to complete this week as I reallllly need to finish some of my UFOs!

How can anyone (especially me) have so many sewing threads but never ever have the colour I want? I have eight navy blue bobbins and at least ten white/beige! I know that a mid grey thread will blend with many colours when sewing so I guess that I will stock up on that. Some of my bobbins of cotton are really old as they belonged to my Mum and Nanna. Some of them are wooden bobbins and I still use them (even though I’ve never got the right colour!)
