I was very pleased to have some time to do crafts this weekend. I made some gift tags with origami hearts and fishes on:
I also had time to do some greetings cards:
My brother in law’s partner is having a baby in October and so I have taken it upon myself to knit something. I am not quite sure why, as I haven’t knitted anything in my life bar those tiny hats for Innocent Smoothie bottles; still, it seemed like the thing to do. I fully intend to knit a hat, a really cute blue and white striped hat, with a pom pom on top naturally.
In the meantime, I’m practicing by knitting a… thing… I’m just knitting really. Knit two, pearl one; as the pearling is not so easy and makes me cross. It started life as a baby scarf, but when I quickly realised the proportions were all wrong, I started to pretend I never said that it was going to be a scarf at all- no, no, I’ve been knitting a ‘thing’ all along.
Here’s the finished card I made. It was really tricky, actually, and I did feel like I was under pressure to get it done in time to send it off- but I think it turned out ok for a first attempt! Like I said in my previous post, not very creative or adventurous, but it did the job. I do feel like if I had more time and planned more I could get some good results making these.
