The Puppy Gloves are complete. They were actually complete on Friday but I just haven't got around to posting them. I also didn't want to wear them walking until I had a fairly clean and tidy photo, so I am looking forward to warm fingers tomorrow morning!! These are my seventh OPAM project. I made two pairs, one for MrsGardyGardener and one for me.
Mine are knitted on 3.75mm dpns and I knitted the smallest size with the middle size length options. I also made the fingers much longer again. I used Zara Extra fine Merino wool. I love the colour. I think they are expensive gloves without fingertips, they cost $27, but then I'm worth it!! I used the Bhren's free pattern again.
For my August OPAM, I will be sewing. I will be sewing at least one skirt. I will have to sew more than that because I have signed up for Self Stitched September. I was thirteenth. I must have had a rush of blood to my head. The rules state that you should endeavour to wear something you have stitched every day in September. Doesn't have to be a new thing every day. It can be knitted, crocheted, embroidered, woven, sewn, even refashioned or maybe jewellery. I am going to exploit the rules to their very length, breadth and width, but I do need a few skirts. I think September will be warm enough for me to wear some Spring skirts. We'll see!!
And now the Labradors. Peri has been having a wonderful time on our walks in the rain and mud. She is so happy her tail swishes with joy quite a lot of the way. I'm sure that's how she burned off those two kilograms!!!
I have finally caught up on answering all my comments- from four months ago, way back when Harki died. It was lovely to look at her pictures and see how happy she was. The GardyGardeners planted a rose for Harki in my garden: Gold Bunny. It is a bush rose with lots of big, double yellow roses. I can see it from my front window with the three other roses. They only stopped blooming a few months ago, and any day now new shoots will start appearing.
Last night our Trivia team went out for burgers with our vouchers. I had a chicken burger, with a grilled chicken breast, egg, Cos lettuce and other yummy bits and bobs and two quite nice cups of tea.Today I had a long breakfast with The Dutches, and I took Brunchy Frittata, some special chocolate biscuits and a mud cake to say thank you to The Uncles for putting my oven in. Baby Electric was there and she momentarily wore her hat!! She is so cute!!! I had a big catch up nap this afternoon, and I am longing to start my Garden Patch embroidery but I think I should wait till I am wide awake tomorrow!!
