I gave her a box full of presents last weekend which included some things I had crocheted for her as well as a lot of other presents I had rounded up from Amazon, Etsy, and high street shops (which took a lot of planning but somehow I pulled it off). She loved all of her presents.
Here is what I made for her (I'm posting it conveniently on a Friday)
Two of the patterns are by my favourite 2 bloggers - My Mum and Lucy 'Inthesky' and the other is one of my own patterns
I made her some snuggly mittens to keep her warm in the old buildings:
Pattern : Granny Chic 'Granny Stripe' Wrist Warmers by Lucy Inthesky
This bunting is to match the colours in this blanket my Mum made for her to take to university
Pattern: Pretty Lacy Bunting by Janet McMahon
Pattern: Simple Striped Bunny by Grace McMahon
Good Luck Eve!
We'll text/talk/Skype lots (maybe even write too) and come and see you in a few weeks xxxxxxxxxxx
In other news, I have decided to go against my nice system of not starting a project until another is finished and am currently neglecting big projects that need finishing in order to make other projects.
I started knitting a scarf for The Boy after there were several requests from the boys at uni for hand made scarves (The Boy's one is a practice-run to see how long it takes to make a scarf and how much I should charge). I'll be using chunky wool for any requested scarves as this is my absolute favourite weight to knit in and grows so quickly.
I am also meant to be making a present for The Boy's little brother (using this pattern) who is staying with us tonight until Sunday. I'm making it as a footballer in a Celtic FC kit although annoyingly I left one ball of wool I needed at home today so I couldn't do much on the doll in the 6 hour gap I had between lectures.
