Happy mail

I’m so exciteeed! As an early Christmas present, the Fiancé has bought me my very first yarn advent calendar from Bluebell Yarns!

Each teeny parcel contains a 10g skein of Falkland Corriedale 4ply, and I went for the non-Christmas colourway option so the colours will be a total surprise for me as I open them. I have some ideas for what to make using my new mini skeins, but I’m waiting to see what they all look like together before making a definite decision.

I just can’t wait to start opening them! Is it December yet??

FO Friday 26.10.18

I finished one robin for my Mum, aside from the pompom on his hat. I’ve never made a mini pompom before so I may yet end up buying some.

As usual, my second attempt was much better.

I so prefer the second one, I’m actually considering unpicking the first one and moving the eyes closer together. They’re just slightly too low and wide for my liking.

 

Hopefully I can get the third one finished up ready to give them all to my Mum this weekend. I’m going to a friend’s wedding tomorrow and I’m trying to work out whether it’s acceptable to knit during the ceremony…

 

So that’s my FOs for this week. Anyone else finished something? Got some fun plans for the weekend? Let me know in the comments!
