Happily joining Ginny and the gang over at Small things for this week's Yarn Along.
I've been holding on to a lot our glass jars from the kitchen to re-use for storage in the studio and handwork room at school. Upcycling is an idea I love playing with these days. I couldn't find a pattern for a jar cover that I loved, so thought I'd try my hand at making it up as I went. Thinking it would be a great project for the children at school to store their crochet hooks and pencils and all. I don't know why this colour combination captivates me so, I love the retro feel of it.
I finished reading The Knitting Circle by Ann Hood. I've mixed feelings about it... the idea of a contemporary story that has the act of knitting as its centre thrills me, and the belief that knitting can be a healing practise, I love all that. The story did have glimmers of honesty and authenticity but overall I found it very contrived. Definitely an easy read though.
What's in your work basket this week..? I look forward to browsing through. Thanks for stopping by : ) x M
