I haven't picked up any knitting or crochet for a year at least. If asked what woolly projects I have, I would have said none. But then this afternoon I found three bags in the dark recess of the understairs cupboard. I was looking for children's knitting needles as I feel an urge to try and teach Little I to knit again. She has been learning to sew with some good results. I need to brainwash her into crafting even more while she is still receptive. I feel a little guilty about these abandoned and forgotten projects,
While looking for the needles, I found this little space invaders scarf that I started knitting when I was expecting RG four years ago, Looking at it took me back to sitting in waiting rooms for maternity checks. How I hated those waiting rooms. I don't have enough yarn to knit much more of it. I am not sure whether to unravel it. The intended recipient (my son) would now consider a homeknitted scarf as social death (along with being seen in public with me, wearing a coat and having a push button mobile).Then I found this almost complete striped mohair and angora (I think) scarf. Cast on as a present for a friend maybe five years ago. It is definitely Rowan. I don't like handling this type of yarn so the scarf has languished. I really am determined to finish it now and get it wrapped up for Christmas.
In the third bag I found this crochet zigzag, it looks blanket size. I had no memory of starting this. In fact I had forgotten that I even knew how to do crochet zigzag. I am slowly having a vague recollection of crocheting this. I only have three balls of wool though. Surely not enough for a blanket? What colours would you add to make it big enough....I am not sure whether to stay with pinks and reds or add white, grey or even go rainbow bright?
