A mini make

Current WIP count: 6

I over-ordered the yarn for my Flax Light, so there was a whole skein and at least 1/3 of another left over. That wasn’t enough to make another one for myself (tempting as it may be) but I knew it would definitely be enough to make a mini version for my friend’s toddler.

So that’s happening. Her birthday is at the beginning of December so that’s my initial goal, but if I miss that then the aim is Christmas!

There’s been very little time at home over the last week so I haven’t made much progress on Morag. The loop stitch means it’s not quite mindless enough for working on at choir.

I have a train journey or two coming up at the weekend so I should be able to get a move on with her.

A question for everyone – what is your opinion on knitting or crocheting at a wedding and/or wedding reception? Yes? No? “You’re a terrible person for even thinking about it”? Asking for a friend….

  1. It’s always nice having the excess yarn “problem” to overcome and it sounds like you came up with a good solution to it. As to knitting or crocheting at a wedding and/or its reception, you’re/they’re not a terrible person for thinking of it (I’m one of those people who find weddings mind-numbingly boring and suspect that they’re socially-engineered public torture devices, so I totally get it), but I’d say that a guest definitely shouldn’t do that. The wedding day belongs to the lucky couple and the role of a guest is to do his/her best to make their day as special as possible for them. That means a guest is stuck doing nothing but wedding-related things. I hope it’s quick and painless and that you/they can get back to knitting and crocheting soon.

      1. I don’t really like that kind of dancing, although my boyfriend did manage to drag me up for a slow dance!
        I didn’t knit at all during the actual wedding-y bits, but I’m glad I had it with me when we had a wait for transport.

  2. I had to laugh. While I totally understand your desire to use the space of time from a wedding to work on a project, something tells me it might be frowned upon. But bring it in the car (just in case) 😉
