So many lovely things…

There are so many things I want to make at the moment.

There are gorgeous frocks and skirts that I want to try sewing, weaving ideas I want to do, spinning some alpaca that my sister just bought for me, and then to top it off I received this in the post with even more lovely things:

I am extremely aware of how lucky we are right now. I am so very grateful to still have my job, and even more so to have some spare $$s to spend on making. And of course lucky to be able to roam freely around the country without worrying about the virus.

And whilst the guilty thought of a few months off sounds tempting, it is just as rewarding to pop the lovely things to one side until the weekend when there is an opportunity for them to get added to the rest of the pile of WIPs.

  1. Hi Gill. Snap. I have ordered that book too. I’m new to colourwork and there’s a lovely cardigan – the name escapes me – that I’d love to knit. There’s a podcaster here called Suffolk Socks and hers looks beautiful.
    Know what you mean about wanting to make everything. Not enough hours in the day. I’m part way through watching your podcast. The hats you’ve made are stunning. I’ve made a note of the designers. Your friends are so lucky.
    You mentioned your parents coming to stay. Is your Mum a knitter?
    Enjoy the NZ sunshine. Just starting to cool down here. I don’t mind though – lots of handknit socks, shawls and gloves to keep warm.
