Pearl hugs my wool up the Malvern hills and making knitted chains

This post is for Jo who loves these funny egg shaped balls of scratchy wool as much as I do. They are from a lovely lady Eliza who was at Fibrefest in Devon in the summer. I bought lots at 50p each and then we set off straight after the show on our hols, knitting chains happily on the journey. We arrived and parked up to walk the Malvern Hills, rather than leave my new wool in my car, I took them in my bag to climb the Malvern hills with me, where they would be safe from woolly car thieves -much more sensible I thought. As you know Pearl Mogg is always in my pocket so after spotting the lovely black railings a photo opportuntiy not to be missed. My chains are 36 stiches and 5 rows - an easy peasy project.

More Autumn woollyness

I like to carry around small portable projects.
The leaves are all knitted separately then I sew them into a garland, we have ours above the fire place.

Knitted Acorn Broach

I'm knitting them as fast as I can, so if you are waiting for yours, it's on its way. Still haven't put them on Folksy, it was either do that or make a crumble and I plumped for crumble, ever the business woman! I've kept them at £7.50.
