Back again..... finally

Wow, its been a very long time since I have written here. Life has been turned upside down and inside out, but I think that I am coming out the other side, so can start blogging here again. Until very recently I have not knitted a stitch or spun a fibre in several months, but now I think that I am having a renewed interest.

It is knitting for the children that has got my interest going again. I bought a fabulous book – Dream Toys by Claire Garland, which has fabulous toys like unicorns, fairies, pirates and cowboys that have inspired me to get the pins out again.

So I have started with a unicorn for Lily. The knitting did not take too long and now I am at the making up stage. Lily wants it to have a pink mane and tail and so it shall. The legs have rolled up paper in them, so hopefully it will even stand up on its own (well fingers crossed it will). I only hope that she does not treat it like her ‘Manky’ puppy and drag it through the mud etc because it will not stand the consent washing.
