I was asked to make 2 x 20cm matching lampshades in the colours of a larger one already in the store. It’s pretty hard to make matching items as the fibre blends are mixed and unique, the fibres move in different ways and shrinkage is pretty tricky to control. However, I think I managed a pair the customer will be happy with, fingers crossed.
I also finished 2 Highland landscape wreaths for the shop too. I forgot to photograph them in the rush.
The bricks and mortar cowl, I had knit with some handspun, had an annoying habit of rolling down, so I have felted it and it’s much more upright and less loose.
Well as my title suggests I finished a jumper this week! I started it on Tuesday afternoon, worked on it on Wednesday and a little of Thursday evening and finished it on Friday. I think if I’d been just sat watching TV for a couple of days it could easily have been finished in 2 days. I have done an FO post about it here.
I forgot last weekend to mention that I sold a scarf on my Etsy shop. At the moment most of what I make is sold locally in the Alchemist Gallery, but my scarves are sold on Etsy. A link to my Etsy store is on the home page of my website. (I only sell to UK, not overseas.)
If you haven’t been watching The Undoing on Sky Atlantic and NowTV (HBO Max in US) then I recommend it. It’s one of those griping dramas that has you posing theories to each other…time will tell if I’m right about what happened. I binge watched The Queen’s Gambit series on Netflix a couple of weeks ago and really enjoyed it. I discovered this week my husband doesn’t know how to play chess! We normally play Samba or Bolivian Canasta, Pass the Pigs or Exploding Kittens when we go away…I asked if we should take a chess set so I can teach him but he said no.
I still haven’t started making any Christmas presents 🤦🏻♀️ Some houses on our estate already have some Christmas lights up!!!
