This week seems to have completely disappeared on me!!! Thank you all very much for the positive comments on the July needlecase. I am pleased to report the grey felt turned up, along with the lovely apple green ordered at the same time. Somehow it just disappeared. I have to say a special thank you to Catherine [Catherine's Place] for getting to the bottom of the dilemma and organizing a second order for me. She has some very nice products and I will be putting in another order ASAP. I have to admit though, after the grey felt arrived, I am happy that I used the black felt in the July needlecase. I think the contrast is more striking.
I have made a start on August's needlecase, but I find I've been needing something to do at night, something that is not so taxing on my eyesight. These little toddlers' beanies are quick to make and use left overs.
I thought I might also share this pram cover with everyone. I knitted this using homespun wool. It's not the 'softest' cover I've ever come across, but it should be very warm. This little 4-row pattern creates a waffle effect, and was very easy to knit. I do hope the close up is clear enough. Both this and the beanie pattern are in a book I've had for years - All you can Knit and Crochet for Babies [Golden Hands publication]. I really like the styles in it, despite it being quite old.
