warming up

Such a sunshine-y couple of winters’ days here…sitting on the patio crocheting:

looking at the weeds…and doing nothing about them! (You pull them out, they just grow back again, right?)

winter's day

Finished Katie’s order of two cowls with matching fingerless mitts, in Pure Gold Double Knit -cherry red:

cowl 3
mitt 2

cowl 1mitts 1

For the first one, I used the wonderful black and red eyelash yarn that I won on Daniella Joe’s blog a while ago, and also edged the mitts with a row of that. Very quick and effective – I love a bit of flash! Thanks again, Patricia, I would have been stuck without having that on hand :-)

The second one got the row of holes, and so did the mitts around the wrist part.  Weaved the last end in around 3.30pm and then just a quick drive down the M3 to Bergvliet and the parcel is now with a friend to be taken up to Johannesburg tomorrow.

Back soon x

    Jill!

    I love the red cowls and I especially love the furry trim you used around the mitts. I also love the picture of you that just happens to not include your face. :) Have a good night.

    Love, Tamara
