It was a laugh and a nice predicament to be in! I bought a giant ball of pom pom wool, some ordinary wool for blanket making among other things which I will show you soon . Over tea and cake at mums I started with the pom pom wool it is one scarf in a ball and is knitted with large needles and 5 stitches, sounds easy, but it was quite fiddly but lovely and soft
it looks a bit fur-like and is lovely and warm
I think Karin made something similar which she showed on her blog and hers was crochet. It was a fun small project for the weekend although I was pom pomed out by the end of it!!!!!! My other little project for the weekend was this glasses case for myself - I have made one for a friend but needed one for my handbag.
really quick and easy to do with a double crochet tube, edged with crab stitch and crab stitched together at the bottom with a little embroidery and matching button. Its just what I needed, I am still getting used to wearing glasses when I work, craft etc and I am always chucking them into my handbag without the hard case, so hopefully this soft case will protect them and not take up so much room.
Can't believe it is February already - unlike most people I like February, it is the month I was born, the month I got married, it of course has Valentines Day and Shrove Tuesday, and this year has added interest for me because the Winter Olympics starts, so as far as I am concerned there will be lots of sitting watching events and probably crocheting at the same time yipee!!!! (Gosh I sound like a right couch potato!!!)
