It seems we are a little wool crazy at the moment. This dreadful photo, with bed hair and fuzz must be excused because the scene was just too adorable not to record.
As my alarm went off this morning I was greeted with a ball of wool and a couple of pencils. Pop has taken to "knitting". Her version of it involves pencils. Hmmm. Time for a long stay with a patient Granny who can advise how else knitting can be done.
I have been experimenting with needle felting, and after overcoming my fear of those dreadfully dangerous looking needles, have begun what will hopefully come to resemble a donkey. This book is drop dead adorable!
The other child has been experimenting with French knitting. I had started with this beautiful kid mohair, but a bolder shade, and thicker yarn was more Oscar's style. The mohair is like clouds, so very soft and light, and I have about a metre of cord so far. Not sure what I will do with it just yet, but am thinking along the lines of a brooch of sorts. I remember making metres and metres of this as a child, and it certainly is addictive once you get started. Oscar is busy thinking of an end use for his, perhaps something along the lines of an egg cosy, or bookmark.
With school holidays rapidly approaching I am trying to plan a few crafty projects for us all to keep the boredom away. Any ideas?
