I love the colours of this yarn. I use it to decorate my hand warmers. I can’t remember what make it is but I think it is called flowers. The wool shop doesn’t stock it any more so I must make the most of it.
Flowers safely planted……..

I have just got in from ‘Les Mis’ and feel quite emotionally drained so have started making hand warmers again. Today I visited the wool shop to get some more yarn. I am using Monsoon, a James Brett yarn (30% wool and 70% acrylic) with a 5 hook and Stylecraft Chunky Harlequin using a 6 hook. I like the rich colour palette and the unpredictability of the colours. I have decided to knit the left and right hand consecutively using two balls. I sometimes despair of having to crochet the other hand! It’s all in the mind as it will still take the same amount of time. I am waiting for the James Brett ‘Passion’ to come in, a lovely chunky yarn, but it has been delayed and I think Spring will be in the air before it arrives. I have an unfinished pair of H/W’s to complete using passion………but the passion may have run out before I get it.
Today I was doing my customary Wednesday charity shop search for the odd, interesting and quirky little find. Last week, it was a 99 pence boxed set of Glen Miller Records. I was elated with my find.
This week was a glove day……. I discovered two pairs of hand crocheted evening gloves. Delightfully worn with age, beautifully crocheted, with attention to detail and just the thing for a girl to wear to a forties dance…… What is the story they could tell. I wonder who has worn them? Who’s hand has held them or been held by them? Who made them and for what event? I will never know but they will continue their journey as part of the story of my life……
