Alright. So I was thinking I didn’t have enough Fridays remaining in the year to get to 52. Odd, as I am sure I numbered these posts correctly. I have now counted them all and realised that I have done two #46-19! So this really is #48. Can you believe how close it is to 2020? Scary!
This week was a long one as I was away Sunday travelling for work (7 hours on a train). Away Monday and Tuesday nights (return journey 7 hours). Then up to London for a work lunch (6hour round trip). Then at home Thursday and Friday. Too tired to do any craft activities.
Instead I focussed on present buying for relatives and furniture for the house. The bedroom, that was a dumping ground, is now a bedroom again. Just needs a nice chest of drawers matching the side tables. It arrives Tuesday. I still need two little side tables for a twin room. Must order those tomorrow.
Crafting this weekend? I might try and do a blanket I garter stitch with that blue yarn.
So have you made your wish lists? I tell everyone what I would like and then they can choose from that list. I am finally getting a yarn bowl. I asked for it last year and nada. So I made sure this year. But I only ask for things I would buy myself at some point sooner or later.
Other items are weaving books, a loom stand, a band weaving kit. And a new steam iron. Not a usual item but my current iron is not great, leaks water and drops black bits.
The band weaving looks interesting and I like to try new crafts, as you know. The company I hope to get mine from is Stoorstalka from Sweden. You can get others from Etsy and some other yarn shops. But for the price, with shipping, you get a lot more included and it’s already threaded.
Two weekends before we are descended on by relatives for Christmas. it will be lovely to see them all, but I know I will be looking for some quiet time after a few days.
If you have Xmas WIPs, how are they coming on? Will they be finished?
