FO: Another Cowl

The second cowl I made last December was for the assistant at Luke’s Kindergarten.

V GGS 1 V GSS 2I originally wanted to use a DROPS pattern to make the cowl, but then decided to wing it and made the pattern up.

I should have written down some numbers, i.e. stitches and so forth, but of course I didn’t. So I wouldn’t be able to replicate this exact same cowl.

I used the same colour DROPS Merino Extra Fine that I used for Luke’s jumper. It’s such a lovely colour and works really well with this cowl.

Another Amazing Gift

I am overwhelmed by this blogosphere! This week we received another gorgeous handmade gift for Max and a little something for his big brother too.

Claire over at Knitting Sandwich┬ámade Max this adorable little soft toy… and the best thing about it, it’s got a bell inside so it makes noises too! Max is still a tad too young to actually hold it, but he was genuinely interested in it.

And Claire, who is awaiting the birth of her second child very soon, knows that big brothers are equally important, so she got Luke these amazing Steiner wax blocks for colouring. And Luke loves them and went straight to work.

Thank you so much Claire for the thoughtful gifts, we love them!

Blogtoberfest #24 First Craft Group

I taught my first craft group class today. I didn’t think that anyone would show up, but in fact two people came along. I do think there will be more people, especially as they only announced that the group was starting last week Friday. The ladies that did come had a lovely time and we managed to sew up a few pumpkins. So without further ado here are some pictures from the crafting.

Blogtoberfest #21 New Calling

Firstly I’m happy to say that this is finally the post that brings me right up to date with Blogtoberfest, yippieh!

Secondly, as of Wednesday I will be leading a Steiner (Waldorf)-focused craft group. I was asked by Susannah, the lady that leads the group that I attend with Luke on a Thursday and I thought, why not.

So, I’ve had to come up with projects for the next few weeks. We’re going to be crafting the two following things, I’ve found tutorials on other people’s blog:

Felt Pumpkin

Fingergnomes

I think I’ve got enough projects until December, but if you have any that you can suggest, please do!
