Not Much Making But A Bit Of Buying

On the making front this week has been quiet, the only finish I have to share with you is my Chunky Infinity Scarf I started a few weeks ago. Originally I had intended for it to have a hood but because I went with a ribbed effect the scarf was crazy thick and swallowed up the yarn pretty fast (I ended up using just short of 400g of chunky yarn). The ribbing makes it so snug and warm plus the yarn is super soft, I just don’t want to take it off! I made it long so I have the option of wearing it loosely (like in the photos) or wrapping it round once more when it’s really cold.

It’s been really difficult to get a decent photo of my scarf thanks to the torrential rain we’re having right now but Monster no1 gave me a hand this morning on the school run. I think he did a pretty good job! Monster no2 also wanted to have a go, here is his shot.

Do you think he’s trying to tell me he doesn’t like my hat?

I might not have done much sewing this week but I have been busy. My mum came to stay for a few days so we took a trip to Eternal Maker, I picked up these Kokka beauties. The Rhino print is for a tablet case the hubby has asked me to make and I plan on making a small cross body bag with the cameras.

I’m also in the planning stages of a project I’ll share with you soon. I popped to Dunelm Mill and found some PVC coated cotton which is going to be perfect for it.

    Both the boys did good with their photography efforts, I think no.2 just wanted to show off your boots.
    I’m loving the Owl print fabric. I’m pretty sure your new project will look good all owly.
