FNSI...

Last night was Friday Night Sew In. One plan was to cut out some hexagons to start another Dilly Bag...
I had a packet of sample Liberty prints that I bought last year from the lovely UK shop, Alice Caroline...
Perfect I thought. And the templates had been put away in the correct spot, so out they came! ( I only use the big Perspex template as this pattern doesn't use the 'papers' method')
But then I remembered that at the Albany Creek Knit and Natter just last Wednesday, I heard that K4BN had already been asked for 1000 mini Christmas stockings by a charity. This was a 'new' charity for us to help, let alone the 6000+ stockings we provided last year, complete with sweets. Hmmm, so maybe I should be thinking about sewing some stockings??? So I printed off the pattern I use for the fabric ones I make...
But you know what? I ended up just knitting for the evening...
A few more rows on the 'blues and black' chevron/ripple throw. Only about 30cm or so till it's long enough. 
Thank you to Wendy for organising FNSI ! Check out the links to other participants here...http://www.sugarlane-designs.com/2016/07/july-signups-for-fnsi.html

reading about the dilly bag has reminded me I started one ages ago no doubt I will come across it sometime and finish it. Big challenge with the Christmas stockings, and the knitting is looking just great

It's funny how our plans can change just like that. The rug is looking great, a lot of work has gone into it obviously.

Too many options?? Knitting is probably relaxing too.

Your hexi Dilly Bag has me swooning...love the Liberty fabrics. Your chevron/ripple throw is incredible. Those colours are perfect!

The trow looks gorgeous.

Thats a great looking blanket Maria. Not hard to guess what your favourite colours are eh? Has it taken you very long to make? Something like that would take me forever. I'm struggling trying to finish knitting a Hitchhiker scarf - it keeps getting wider so each row takes more time which means it doesn't seem to grow very fast.. Good luck with all those Christmas stockings.

Maria said...

LOL you ended updating your favorite thing. Knitting... Your chevron Blanket is growing beautifully......

Your post made me smile. Sometimes, that's how life goes. I'm #18 on the FNSI list.

Jackie said...

Ohhh my, I love the way your blanket is turning out. Just beautiful.

God bless.

Maria, I heard at church this morning that one of the pastors who runs the soup kitchen is going homeless for a week once again. I first heard of your knitting group last year when he was given a lot of beanies to hand out to the homeless. He is probably wishing he had planned his week on the streets for this past one when we had above average temperatures :-)

Those fabrics are gorgeous. I'm looking forward to seeing what you make with them in the end. I love the hexie bag but stockings would look great too. And your blanket is lovely. You've made that very quickly :)

I've come to a complete stop re crafting lately. Really hoping to get my mojo back. It might have something to do with this very cold weather. I just want to snuggle on th couch and not do a thing. The blanket looks great

Hi, just calling in on a blog hop and I must say that your throw is excellent. It looks really warm and cosy.
