My Mum came down for a visit yesterday. It was a lovely day. We went out for lunch, stopped for coffee and of course we did some shopping. It was nice to have her come down mid week as I (almost) got her all to myself. Hope that does not sound to harsh but normally she would be here on a weekend and with my 4 kids bidding for her attention I don't get a lot of time with her as mother and daughter. So yesterday it was just Mum, Lily and me :o)
Anyway, back on track, in one shop I was in one Isle looking at something but wanted a different color then I went around to mum and what did she have in her basket? Exactly what I was looking for! A quick chat and she was going to make one for me .... yay
But, when we got home I decided to give it a go myself. So a quick lesson from Mum (with crochet hooks!!) before she left and then a quick drive again for me to get what else I needed .... proper needles.
Any idea what I'm on about?
I don't knit,
I have never knitted
but I also had a "get out of jail free" card with mum.
I could mail it to her to do for me :o)
Nothing like a fail proof back up plan, thanks Mum.
I started with this
Have you seen this yarn. It is like a lace
and it knits up like this
Now I have this Scarf and you only need one ball of yarn.
|Thank you to my model xx|
Now I have the needles I might think about making another.
I am also going to link this one up as my
Monthly Make for March
Enjoy your day,
