I am an avid knitter, crocheter, quilter and all round crafty person with too little time to pursue this full time. I have caught the design bug big time and hope to use this Blog to contain my crafty ramblings to stop them going round and round in my head.
I dread to think how many rows I have knitted..... too many to count, but the body of the Octopus is finally complete. it still needs a base and stuffing, but my stash basket is providing a fab replacement for the moment. It will also need eyes and a mouth and maybe some colourful spots, but these can be added later.
Our first Workshop last night was a resounding success, with 13 members learning a new skill - needle felting. Each started a flower and we only had 8 yeps from self inflicted wounds!!
Here are some examples of what was made - these are still 'Work in Progress' as we found out that 2 hours was not really enough time to complete them - there will be more pictures here as they get finished.
Well done to you all and I look forward to seeing the finished articles
I got a fab new book this morning in the post - Felt it - by Maggie Pace
It has lots of great knit & felt ideas and projects - I can't wait to get started - it will make a change from Octopus - at least I have started to decrease for the top, still 1000's more stitches, but it does seem to be growing now.
Thanks SP - Michelle for being a fab SP and sending lots of cool stuff
