I’ve had a few knitting finishes over the last wee while. I don’t know about you, but sewing up the garments often gets put on the back burner. My mission was to use up the remaining blue wool left over from knitting myself a pretty blue jumper. The weather is cooling down so no doubt I’ll be wearing it soon. There was enough yarn left to make a toddlers cardigan, and a scarf – the scarf will go in the donation box and I’ll keep the cardigan for a while in my baby box, just in case there is a need for family knitting.
Using up the last of the blue wool
Another recent finish was a pretty pair of socks for myself using a ball of the gorgeous Zauberball wool in shades of pink and lilac. This yarn is fine 4 ply so they took me quite a while to knit, and I’m really pleased with the result. I always maintained that because I’m so slow knitting socks, I would only ever knit them for myself. But grand daughter Megan saw a photo of them on Snap Chat and asked if I would knit her a pair for her birthday, or maybe Christmas. So what could I do, I just had to say yes!
My new socks
Today is Mother’s Day here in New Zealand, as it is in other countries, although I believe that it is celebrated in a different month in UK. So Happy Mother’s Day to all. My flowers from last week’s early Mother’s Day get-together are lasting quite well – I’ve trimmed the stems back and removed any flowers which were looking sad. It’s amazing how much water cut flowers consume.
My flowers are lasting well
Hope you have all had a lovely day, and been remembered. My adult son (who lives in the South Island) doesn’t really show any interest is these sorts of celebrations, so I usually phone him to remind him what day it is. Then he feels obliged to wish me Happy Mother’s Day!
