Kerchief? Bless You.





I've been exiled to Knitting Headquarters while the live in decorator paints downstairs. The living room is shrouded in dustcovers like some neglected eighteen century ballroom and I'm in the attic with only Magnus and Daphne du Maurier for company. Neither of whom are great conversationalists although Daphne tells the better story. I've been working on some simple crafty things after realising that good concentration and DIY just doesn't work for me. So I've neglected my socks and lace in favour of a log cabin square and when that fails I have been sewing some little fiddly things.

Today I made a scarf out of some second hand fabric and the lining of an old skirt. It is a triumph of my sewing machine skills, none of which include either neatness or accuracy but the end product looks just fine. I had planned to make a kerchief/bandana but on reflection found that a rectangle was much easier to sew than a triangle. Later on in the quiet of the room with only the distant sound of sandpapering for company, I did what anyone would do under the circumstances.

I dressed up the cat.

Sounds about right to me (dressing the cat, I mean).

Love the scarf.

How stoic of him to sport the new sewing project! Everything looks beautiful.

Magnus looks very stylish. (What a good boy ~ I wouldn't dare try this with Molly.) Your sewing looks pretty too.
Hope the renovations are going well.

Wow, you've been busy. I just organized all my scrap yarn and plan on making a few squares myself. I've never made them before but think they are good for on the go knitting.

Ha! I love the expression on Magnus's face! Glad to see he's back in good form.
