A parcel arrived at the weekend, quite out of the blue from Bob’s sister in Surrey. Such pretty wrapping, and a lovely postcard
Denise wrote to say that she’d purchased some of this yarn to make a scarf, then saw a bag of it reduced in the Blue X Sale- and thought I might like to knit myself something with it. So I have eleven balls of this wonderful Sirdar Crofter Chunky
A couple of years ago I made this sleeveless top in the Crofter DK Wool.
My SIL is so amazingly generous, and I am going to check out the patterns in the ‘Chunky’ range [here].
I quite like this cardi, pattern 9202. I certainly have enough yarn to complete it. What do you think?
I don’t think the Native American feathered head-band is obligatory
However, I have another project on the go at the minute [more on that later] and I am going to be A Bit Busier as of tomorrow.
On Tuesday I begin working at a village school** on a regular basis
I shall be working four mornings a week from now till Easter. I am extremely grateful for this opportunity, after the dearth of Supply Work in the Autumn Term – but I suspect that there may be less blogging and fewer craftwork projects for the next six weeks.
Thanks Denise, for such a lovely gift!
