Knitted bag and Happy Mother's day to you all

knitted bag

I have been procrastinating about my knitted bag this week. I went to the local craft shop and they had no orange or yellow cotton, which I needed if I wanted to continue my rainbow theme. I came home thinking that maybe I should dye my cream cotton with onion skins and that’s when the procrastination set in. This morning I woke up and realised, I just didn’t need yellow or orange. I needed to get on knitting my bag. It doesn’t need to be a rainbow, as multi coloured is great. It does need to get knittted!

So I attached the cream and knitted. I can’t believe I spent so much time thinking about the colour. In a strange way, I think I’m going to prefer the cream, after all! I am determined to finish the bag this week as photographing it on circular needles in challenging.

The children spent a lot of time in the garden today, while I continued to organize the craft supplies. They did call me out to see a ladybird that had been disturbed from hibernation. TF had it perched on the end of his finger. I wish I had grabbed my camera. Also spotted the first wasp.

Mothers day cards

The girls made me beautiful cards, at school, for Mother’s Day. They made a point of saying so many wonderful things to me throughout the day, that I feel so spoilt. I also appreciate the effort that teachers put in to the organization of these cards each year. Thank you.

    That bag is really going to look nice…it’s lovely
    funny how some things stall us and all of a sudden we just go for it..and it looks great
    I always used to think I thought about things too much and never got round to the doing…now my brain resists/struggles with extra thinking

      Thanks. I’m glad I’ve got passed the thinking. I’ve started on the red handles, which is fun, especially as I’ve put down the circular needles now!

    It’s a bit nautical. Very on-trend for summer!!

      You’re right…. I shall stop aiming for rainbow and start visualising sand and surf. Hope I finish it before the summer! Thanks.
