This is the wool that is left from finishing my touchyarn hat! I’ve been going on and on about this touchyarn since the beginning of my blog… for those of you who do not know about this notorious ball of wool, my Mum bought it from me from the Touchyarn factory on Alexandria when she was biking in the South Island. It’s BEAUTIFUL hand painted wool and I haven’t been able to make up my mind what to do with it.
I knitted it into a scarf a couple of weeks ago… it took ages and finally I admitted defeat… it just plain, wasn’t long enough. I was surprised, I thought 100gms of wool would make a decent length scarf! But it barely tied around my neck. So I frogged it, then, as you know, began knitting a hat for me….
It turned out beautifully, but didn’t even fit on my head properly! I had knitted it far too small to encompass my voluptuous brains and abundant hair
I do believe it was the pressure of making something out of such a special ball of wool…
Never mind, it fits KB perfectly… and I think she loved it more than me anyway.
So I thought I’d see how many flower badges I could make from that leftover ball.
I love gorgeous coloured wool to crochet flowers with…. And managed 5 altogether… only just, I had about 10cms of wool left.
I’m definitely keeping one…
And I thought I’d share one with one of my lovely blog friends…. So leave me a comment saying whether you prefer the pointy petals or the round petals!
And I’ll draw it on sunday 21st July… with Raymond’s assistance of course!
I know you can probably all make one for yourselves… but it’s always nice to enjoy someone else’s work once in a while!
I was mucking around in the evening sun today…
And almost managed to capture the beauty of this crystal friend…. who is breathtakingly beautiful in the stone….
Oh, and remember my friend whose wedding things I blogged about? Welllllllllllllllllll, she has her own blog now, and it’s colourful and lovely, it’s going to be a great one to follow from the beginning, so pop over to Peas and Bob but don’t forget to leave a comment first!
Have a lovely day from Alice and Raymond XX
