a little bit of catching up

As we are now well into the new year it is about time for me to write some more about the things I have been doing. In the autumn I visited the ExCel for a craft show. One of the stalls offered the chance to enamel a pendant. I haven't done enameling since I left school in 1970. So it was fun to see if I would get a decent result after all these years. Here is the result, and not bad if I say so myself

Now, what else have I been doing? Trying to use as much stash as possible, I started knitting. Some time ago someone mentioned a 'blankie' or comfort blanket. It didn't mean a thing to me, but when I did a search for it I found a really lovely pattern for a sheep using Aran yarn. So I ended up making 2 which went to a good home immediately. (I always have these good intentions to add something I made to my listings on eBid) Recently I came across this lovely baby yarn in a bright yellow and it just screamed 'duck blankie' at me. So I went about adaping the pattern I had and the lamb became a duck.

Looking at the lamb now, I can see a monkey. Where is that brown chunky wool?


  1. Just found this blog and am sure that one of your comfort blankets went to Billy's granddaughter when she was newborn. It was the lamb one. Then when my granddaughter was born I totally forgot that it was you who knitted my first one so my sister got the job :)

  2. This has now jogged my memory. I can't believe it is so long since I wrote anything here
