Can’t cedar wool fir the trees…

Seeing as we’re over halfway through the year, figured it was thyme to give you an update on a long term project.

Some of yew may remember that fir this years Christmas decorations the plan is to knit a 100 tiny Christmas trees.

Well, despite it feeling like its taken a centertree to knit them, all 100 have been knitted!

Only, small problem… well… I suppose a picture pinet-s a thousand words…

So lets do some clearing shall we?

The plan is now fir Felix and Inkling to decorate all the trees, and once done, I’ll knit the trunks and sew them closed. That shouldn’t take quite so long as knitting them, although tree-ing to find the time to get these decorated may be the more difficult part…

In non knitting but related to wool news, another batch of natural dying was done, this time Felix chose black currants as our black currant bush is overflowing with berries once again. So many berries…

Personally, olive the muted pinkish purple colour, Felix significantly less so. So no further experiments done on this batch (when it’s my turn to play with the dye pot again I am totally repeating this one and trying a few different things with it – including fleece, I think this on my distaff like some form of forbidden candyfloss wood be amazing.)

In non knitting viking news, I passed another two tests! I can now recall all manner of viking facts, carry sharp knives, light fires and act my nalbinded socks off! Was a really good weekend but yew woodn’t be-leaf how tired I am from it!

And that’s about it, really. Oh, turns out a few of the other vikes are as bad as me fir wool and there was a wool shop near the test site and… impromptu wool shop! I was good and walked out with three balls in acrylic DK in colours I knew I was lacking fir toy knitting (yes, wool is better, no, I am not knitting a toy that’s going to be dragged through the mud every five seconds that requires hand washing. That’s a special kind of cruel.)

And with that I bid yew to keep safe until the next post!
