Making Monday

A few weeks ago The Yarn Yard proposed 'Making Mondays', a day to blog about the things we have made. I liked the idea as I often feel that I don't achieve much, so I'm going to use the idea to journal my crafting progress as when I stop to consider it I often manage to get more done than I think.

Stitching
This week it was Above the Clouds turn in my rotation. I didn't get a huge amount done, what I did was mostly on the wing.

Knitting
For the last couple of weeks I've been mostly working on my first Ishbel, I rattled through the central stocking stitch section in under a week (mostly because sleep had been in short supply) now I'm onto the the second lace section.

I've also cast on for Rosie's socks in the Moss Alpaca sock yarn I got at Baa Ram Ewe a couple of weeks ago.

Sewing
As Rosie has moved on from her Playgroup to the school nursery she needed a pump bag so I repurposed an old skirt of mine to make one.

What a great little bag Karoline, I'm sure Rosie will love it. Your Ishbel is looking great in that yarn well done on all your achievements, it's quite a lot with two young children ♥

I've been trying to gather up the nerve to start Ishbel - yours looks awesome - the other Ysolde shawlette I was involved with ran off the track and I haven't picked it back up. Yes I agree that you've gotten a lot done with 2 small children. Hope we do start visiting with you weekly! Cheers - Mel
