To arms!

I have received the yarnery call-to-arms! My workplace is collecting donations for a homeless charity for Christmas and the wish list includes hats, gloves, scarves, and socks to fit all ages, shapes, and genders. Time to get stash-busting.

I’ve already picked out this mahoosive skein to be used up first, probably with different pops of colour because that’s my jam.

This 400g baby ended up in my stash because I wildly over-estimated how much yarn I would need to finish off my Roses for Grandma blanket, so it’s perfect for quick charity makes. Plus I think Grandma would be pleased that something made for her will lead to other people being kept nice and warm during the Scottish winter.

I’m actually really excited about this – I love making for charity. Now if you’ll excuse me, I’m off to start the first of many hats.

WIP and post Wednesday 13.12.17

To all my American friends: just see it as me making Christmas last even longer for you!

Yes, I have only just posted all my Christmas goodies today.

I’m optimistic that Royal Mail can sort out the UK ones in time, but I know I missed the boat with those going across the pond. (My phone just corrected that to pindpond so now I can’t stop laughing!)

Ahem, anyway. This week I’ve been working on some fingerless gloves to go into a raffle at my work.

This is what winning yarn chicken looks like. They are actually attached, I started one at each end of the skein so I could keep an eye on the amount of yarn left. It worked!

I’ve also made a start on another octopom and a tiny cat, both for Christmas presents.

That’s the octopom, not the cat. I wonder if anyone would want a green cat?

So that’s my week. How’s everyone else doing? Got some WIPs to share? Let me know in the comments!
