Hey all! Apologies for no post last week but I didn’t have any FOs and I was pretty tired…
Covid has done a number on my energy levels.
On a more pleasant note, I received two flying over night visits from Rabbie! A nice little chance to catch up, hug my fur niece Missy, and coo over our collective craft hobbies.
She left me with quite a few ideas for the fabric stash, and in exchange, I handed over:
This is Biscuit the Dog PK7 by Debbie Minton, a Popcorn knitting kit, and I love and hate him.
Lets rewind. Back when I was visiting Rabbie for my cheeky trip up North to play Zombie Nerf, her husband handed me this knitting kit, stating that he had bought it 7 years ago and despite many, many promises, had never been touched.
I dont think I’ve seen my sister go so red and splutter before…
With a chuckle, I accepted the challenge. And it was a challenge. Not only was it twice the size I thought it was, the pattern itself is a sewing pattern with the knitted pieces mirroring those flat bits of fabric. But knitted fabric doesn’t behave like woven fabric, and trying to figure out where point Z is and how it’s supposed to match CC with CC whilst matching DD to a completely different piece is just…
Needless to say, never again.
But he has turned out super cute for the hard work, and my BIL left with a big grin and hugging his newest toy, so all in all, a good turn out.
Next time, I hope he asks for a simple knit…
Until next week, stay safe!
