I will make no grand gesture of a return this time but will try to slink back quietly.
I bring pictures of knitting. A birthday shawl for my Mum
That was greatly appreciated.
A Christmas Gnome that I donated to a school fair.....my mantelpiece looks bare without him so I may have to knit another!
The shawl was a fantastically easy pattern from Simply Knitting magazine. A four row repeat with 3 of the rows being knit or purl and just one row to shape the waves. I loved knitting it! I used this yarn and had enough left over to knit some rather nice gloves.....pictures of those will wait for another post
The gnome is of course an Alan Dart classic. I had to make the beard silver as he was to be sold on the 'silver' table at the school Christmas fair. I am pleased to say he found a good home very quickly.
Right, time for a cuppa and a peruse of my new Yarn Forward magazine before the little man awakes!
