More of mums crochet & my knitting

Tonight is FNSI with Wendy. http://sugarlane-designs.com/2015/06/fnsi-sign-ups-for-june.html

I was at my LQG all day sit n sew... 10 to 10. I haven't take any photos of what I was working on but there was about 20 of us sewing away. Hopefully over the weekend I'll get some photos.

In the meantime I have been doing some wool work. Knitting and crocheting..

Mum had a bag full of crochet granny squares made. They are in very soft and pretty colours. This is the design I have laid them out in. I will join them by crochet and then crochet a border.


I also made my eldest grandson, Nicholas, a beautiful knitted jumper. It is in an old pattern. FISHERMANS RIB. The yarn is thicker than 14 ply, a real chunky one, so it hasn't taken me long to make.


Another finish for OPAM..
