Another week whizzes by and it’s been spent starting a Boo Knit MKAL for a new shawl called Morticia.
I’ve known this shawl MKAL has been coming up for the past month and trying to whittle down the choices in yarn and bead colour.
I finally settled on this.
Black 4ply yarn with sienna coloured beads. The shawl is knit with lace weight yarn but I wanted something a little heavier. The pattern is being released in four clues and this is heading on for half way through the first clue.
I’ve been working slowly on it in between other projects and for the moment it needs to continue on like that. I don’t expect I’ll have it finished by the Halloween date but that’s ok to.
I have been working on the boy version of the bunny and waiting all week, not so patiently, for stuffing to complete it. It finally arrived on Friday but it has meant that I can’t post out until Monday so this coming week I do hope to have a release post.
I have started another cloth, I’m using these for Harry Potter classes and will need them for Xmas gifts and the stall at the fair.
It’s a very simple linen stitch one I’ve designed.
I need to spend a good week at this stage writing up my patterns but with what’s planned for the coming months that’s not looking likely until late December. I really never thought I’d be saying that ! Me writing up patterns ! Who’d have thought !
I have been trying to finalise the list of things I might need for the fair but trying to gauge how much of each is what’s causing the headache so while I ponder that I’m just going to keep making.
I am way over due on a family update post. It has been so busy of late. Each week I say that and I still haven’t managed it but tomorrow there shall be one !
Just a sneaky peek though here is Lady Evelyn who has turned 10 months already. To hear what else she’s been up along with all the other children come back tomorrow.
