When I go on holiday I take some small hand sewing to do at quiet times, and this holiday was no different. I took all of my hexigon 'stuff, and I also took some embroidery, but the main thing I did was knit.....Yes in 30 dec C I was knitting fingerless gloves. The thing is I think fingerless gloves are so handy and they are quick to knit. In the end I made 6 pairs..... all with different yarn, and therefore they all came out slightly different.
|This pair are actually lime green|
|Got to think more about the ribbons too|
|I might look at a smaller ring to attach it to|
|Blocking going well, and I think the ring will work for this one|
Do you remember the Higham Piecemakers Christmas Challenge? We were all given a fat quarter of background fabric (either white or cream) which had to be used along with the workings for a clock. I have made clocks before as gifts for friends, but never one for me, so, this is my clock which sits very happily in my sewing room. I finished my one before the holiday, but it missed the big reveal day as that was the day we were travelling back home. You should go over to Higham's blog to see what the other ladies made......they are brilliant.
|Bright and cheery just like my room|
Off for the first evening walk of this year tonight, so hope the weather stays dry and I might get a few photos for next blog time. Keep fingers crossed it stays dry
