The plan was practise my new knitting technique and make myself a garment.Then I rethought that because that would mean a whole new order of yarn and I had other plans for my gift card – as you know – so decided to make some little garments for a friend’s baby, with some of my leftover yarn. I’m not totally convinced they’ll fit, to me they look too teeny tiny tiny for her, but it’s hard to tell. We’ll see.
This is not a posed photo, although it looks like it might be, I was actually showing Mum what I’d been knitting lately and doing the beseeching look which tries to convey ‘I’d LOVE to sew these up but would equally LOVE it if you want to offer to do them for me. In fact that would be super all round.’ No go. Even when I bluntly asked her she laughed and said no. Pah!
