Inspired by Vicky at Blush Crafts, I thought I'd whip up a quick bloke's card for the latest challenges at Less Is More (sketch) & Addicted to CAS (World)
...here it is.
Following Vicky's tutorial I fashioned a moustache and attached it to a panel cut from a charity shop map. The sentiment was hand written due to my inability to move the margins on my computer. It's a quick card today as I have much to do.....tax return, French translation and most importantly, knitting!
Whilst dashing round Aldi last week I saw this mahoosive ball of Aran yarn (a wool mix) for just £3.69 which promptly went into my trolley and an idea was hatched. On the way home I dived into our local needlework shop and purchased a pair of wooden needles which I'd heard were the dog's whatsits for knitting....and indeed they are. I taught myself to cast on from a YouTube tutorial (Deramores, I thought yours was crap) as even though I could knit I could never do the casting on bit.(hangs head in shame) Anyways the plan is to knit a cowl, snood,...(call it what you like) because heaven knows I haven't got enough scarves already! I'm really enjoying knitting and with this easy stitch I can even manage it whilst watching the telly. I'm hoping it will be completed in the next couple of weeks...yeah well, one can hope.
I managed a little chazzing this week also...
a few more books at 25p each.
And a large pasta dish, not vintage, but jolly useful.
So that was my week, how has yours been ? Must dash folks, I've got some knitting to get back to.
