Thankfully, no, it’s no where near Christmas time. However, having left Christmas knits until December…never fun…
Also, this particular item needs to be done before December!
They are Inklings very own advent calendar! (He was rather jealous christmas just gone that he didn’t have one and Felix did…) Pattern is my go to free pattern for advent calenders – Christmas Stockings by Amanda Berry. So cute, easy and versatile!
Going to have to say though, knitting Christmas things when we were having unseasonably warm weather is just wrong!
In other knitting news, my tribble infestation has resurfaced, and mutated into a rather interesting form…
They’re bath tribbles! (Or scrubbies, or puffs or puffles, no one seems to quite agree on what they’re actually called…)
As you can see, the very large mummy tribble has given birth to eleven sturdy baby tribbles, and a little runt…Felix has claimed the runt for her toy kitchen and Engel has claimed the mummy as it’s so big he can actually scrub his own back…
I’ve based these on the free pattern Tribble by Abigail – 1870pearl, but worked in stockinette and using ruffle wool.
Been a busy week at work and today was at Foamfest, Britain’s first Nerf convention – it was good, lots of ideas of what can be done to the Nerf blasters to make them more awesome, be it internal modifications or paint jobs!
That’s all for now, have a good weekend everyone!
