Craft overdrive



There is something about the cooler weather that sends me into craft overdrive.  There has been a flurry of knitting, spinning and sewing here lately (not so much scrapping as that room is not airconditioned and it is FREEZING LOL) So here are some recent craftings and the photos are all over the place because Blogger is being unkind.  First up is a farm play mat that I made for Maddie's best friend.  I decided at the last minute to round the corners which was foolish because then the binding was tricky.  Note to self: next time just do plain square corners!

This knit is my Shalom cardigan finally finished!
Recent spinning - I'm in training for the Tour De France - a group of us will be spinning every day that the race is on!
My finished Shalom cardi (details on ravelry)  How to make a knitter's heart happy - the first time I wore it out I had 3 lovely compliments on it!


I've also finished my Baby Surprise Jacket and am 6 grater stitch rows away from finishing a little Kina cardigan for Maddie but haven't taken photos of those projects yet.
I am off to Tassie to speak at a Creative Memories function this week! Very exciting as I have never been to Tasmania before!
Until next time,
Keep smiling,
Nell

I DID notice your cardi the other day and meant to make a comment but got distracted! It looks very nice and very warm too!

that farm play mat is the coolest thing! i've pinned it and hope it won't be one of the many things i pin and never end up making. i really want to make this for my nephew, he'd be in love with it, i know! thanks for this wonderful idea and the tip of not rounding the edges!

Wow, go you! I love the playmat idea - is that an original or borrowed idea?
