I couldn’t resist photographing my large glass sweet jar, now a button container (it was full of soap!)….. I should really tip out the contents to see the buttons at the centre of this button mass. Perhaps I will, but not tonight as I want to post this and then continue making my string bag. I am using some white Indian cotton as it has been sitting on the wool stash shelf for a very long time and a 5mm crochet hook.
The wool shop is open tomorrow and I am hoping that the yarn to finish my hand warmers has arrived. I would like to be able to say I’ve finished that project.
Tag Archives: Hand warmers
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.
