Winter feels like the time for knitting and that's what I have been doing. I made Charlie Bofur gloves, the exact pattern and wool used in the Hobbit movie for the dwarf Bofur (Charlotte loves Lord of the Rings.) As soon as they were off my needles they were on her hands, no blocking for Charlie! I'm knitting a cardy for me and some socks. Making socks was one of my goals this year so for my first attempt I am knitting Easy Peasy socks. I find the self-striped wool fascinating, such pretty patterns for such little effort! Other knitting projects in the queue are fingerless gloves for Josh (14 years) and a hat for me.
And the bundle of fabrics in the last photo? I am going to be playing with them on Sunday, Wendy xx
