Some snippets from my week

There’s enough of a nip in the air now to warrant wearing slippers all the time, as opposed to going barefoot! Alex found an experimental pair with blue flowers at the bottom of a box of stuff:

and I have these, also a bit of an experiment, made with homemade t-shirt yarn, and extremely cosy with socks: (I said cosy, not elegant!!!)

This exquisite crucifix bookmark was made by Jane from Rainbow Junkie Corner, and sent to me as a gift because I made the list of her top five commenters (commentators?). I promised it to Karen, the only overtly Catholic friend I have, but of course I’m a bit sorry now. Here it is on Karen’s dressing table. Thank you, Jane, it was very kind of you to go to all the trouble of making and posting it :-)

Then it was Rudy’s birthday lunch on Thursday, so I knocked up a tin can cosy for one of those starfish succulent things (can never remember what they’re called, but I love the way that little baby ones grow out around the sides when they’re in a bed):

Finally, Jonathan asked me to make him a Jayne hat. I said Sure, not having a clue what that was but, hey, sometimes I like a challenge. There are already free patterns on the internet for them, so I chose this one by Erika Barkoff : Jayne hat.

My colours are a lot more vibrant than they look in my photo, but I have a feeling it should be a bit bigger. Jono has a big head!

      Yip, you too Ingrid. Turns out the hat is a bit small for Jono’s head, as I feared, but it will fit his 13yr old son perfectly and I’m busy knitting another one for his big old head :-)
