An orangie post

An orangie post, my allotment, some pumpkin knitting which is an easy rectangle -  the shape is made by pulling the thread around it to make the segments and my beech nut broach a favourite green and glamorous broach. Very easy to make with a beech nut piece of wire, a little green wool and a splash of orange nail varnish. Lastly the lovely orange of calendulas.

Sit and sew my friend

Am sitting and sewing - it's all I can do at the mo. Making use of  time while getting over my op. These are based on a 1940s design  - you could use finer thread , but I've used wool which I wrap round a metal ring and making little french knots for the flowers.

Loop wool shop in big London

I have always wanted to go to Loop  and over the last few weeks I have been running around like a mad woolly thing visiting as many  wool shops as I can so when I have my hysterectomy this monday I will knit my lovely finds and listen to my favourite podcast Electric sheep. Knitting can be an anchor and get you though many things.  Tomorrow we are off to the Cornwall yarn shop in Lauceston. Have a lovely woolly weekend everyone.
