Do you, as I do when planning a holiday, allow suitcase space for a small project that you can play with while away? This year I took some knitting that was on the go, and some hexigons to make this, and just before I left I saw this little beauty. So I decided to slip in a few Perle threads ( there is a pattern here) but as I didn't have any internet right then and there, and needed the pattern right NOW, I had to just make it up as I went along. I sat in our hotel room at Gatwick and made a start.
|The colours are not quite right ...the white is actually cream.|
|Finished and more like the actual colours|
Once in Canada my grandson asked if I could make him some fingerless gloves for when he goes fishing in the winter, so off to 'Michael's' for the yarn, pattern off the internet and ready to go. They didn't take long, then the orders came in......
|Mr C's completed|
|Pair for daughter-in-law, and garter st pair for Miss A|
|Planning in progress|
|Its actually quite big|
Once home we were given the instructions for our next Mini Mania Challenge, which is paper pieces as well, the pattern comes from here and Felice gave us permission to play together. Before I show you any of that I should show you my completed quilt for June.
|This one does not have binding because I am planning on sewing them altogether at the end of the year|
|Mug Rug size|
This is the beginning of July's challenge, but it wont be revealed until the end of the month.
|The squares are just 1" so all pretty small|
|Lace weight yarn and tiny tiny needles|
|Lots of shopping|
|We went back to this stand about 5 times... umming and aahing!!!|
|and this was my final haul!|
