I love all things making but my mum loves knitting best of all of the crafts and she is very much faster at it than I am.
While I have been too busy to even think about picking up a needle, mum’s needles have been clacking away like the clappers and I recently took delivery of some of her hard work.
She told me that she has lots of odds of wool so we talked about the best way to use them up and she has spent hours doing just that and here are her efforts.
I love this bright and fun striped baby blanket.
The gorgeous grey scarf is a try out to see what we think of the pattern, size and effect. Although I absolutely love it, I think it can be improved so we have decided to make it twice as wide so it is more like a shawl. That will be in mum’s next batch of knits I hope.
She has made some more of the ever popular hot water bottle covers for me and she has also turned her hand to some baby aranwear for the coming winter.
I think baby knits are her all time favourite and I should get her to show me her prize winning fine knits that she did when we were kids and I hope she still has. I have plans for some items for little people when I find the right pattern and wool so I hope she still likes baby knits.
This little blue number is so cute
I am always so grateful that she gives up so much of her time to my knitting ideas. She knows I would struggle to see them to fruition without her help.
Mum was key to my love of knitting, sewing and crochetting and it is always one thing in life that we will share a passion for. She encouraged and helped me all the time when I was younger and it amazes me that she is still helping me now.
You gotta love a making mum, eh???
