The 1984 quotes are still going strong! This one is about repair. Why?
Because of this cutie. (Demi Octopus by Jennifer Wang – the octopus itself is the free pattern).
One of my work colleagues has a favourite hat. But it had been worn that much it had developed a hole. He showed me it, asking for options and after going over what I could realistically do, including the dreaded darning, he decided to have a little fun with it.
The octopus is deliberately almost exactly the colour of the hat for he wants people to have to do a double take.
This conversation took place the day before lockdown started and was the first finished project of lockdown for myself. I’ve held off and held off on posting this as I wanted to give it to him before showing it off to the world, but as I am potentially be furloughed for another two months…
(I have offered to post it to him, but with the hot weather he is happy to wait for now until we see each other in person)I have had to resist the urge to knit a dozen more of these cuties I’ll be honest!!!
In other knitting news, I have been knitting more Christmas gifts and also a secret project. More on that next week.
In non knitting news, I have finished tearing up and redoing the garden! Apart from painting the fences. And cutting the grass. But the actual hard part is all done! Woo hoo!!!
What to tackle next…
Hope your all staying safe and enjoying the hot weather (I myself am fighting with the cats to get a spot on the cold slate floor in the kitchen as I don’t enjoy the heat…)
\no wool count this week as nothing has gone up or down despite the sheer amount of knitting I have done lately!
