i hope you all had a lovely valentines day, having had the best of intentions to get the socks finished for my man, it didn't happen, the first reason being that i decided to make a last minute present for another (little) man, whose naming ceremony we were attending on Saturday, i made him up a lovely little drawstring bag, with his name on it, (forgetting to take a picture of said bag!), i then felt i needed something to put in this lovely little bag, so i crocheted up a quick pair of booties, using this pattern,
i've no idea what the yarn was, (i think it came free with a knitting magazine ages ago),
i then planned to spend the journey to the naming ceremony knitting up the socks, unfortunately i didn't get very far with them.
but my sweet man didn't seem too upset by merely getting the promise of a soon to be finished pair of socks as his valentines gift, in fact so sweet was he, that i even got away with not only finishing my wonderland quilt top, but i also making the binding & piecing the back for it on valentines afternoon, whilst he kept the little folks entertained, i should get some pictures taken today (if the light gets better).
i was also so fed up of waiting for the fabric i ordered from etsy, which is now unlikely to ever arrive, that i ordered myself a little fabric fix from here, which promptly arrived to cheer me up,
some lovely Alexander Henry 2D zoo in the blue colour way
& some prints charming fabric i'd wanted for an age! something bright to cheer up these damp, dull & rainy days of February!
