Since my last blog life has been busy with new projects and new dog.
At the craft mornings I’m crocheting and knitting. I have made ‘Preemie’ hats and booties and a triangle, known as a Mother/baby comforter. The Mother places it on her breast. then given to her baby who can smell its Mother and it helps with the bonding.
I have used blue,green, mauve,orange. And have yet to make in pink and yellow. All done in the soft double knit baby wool.
I have tried crocheting the Daffodils but gave up as as I forgot how to do it therefore each one is slightly different. I could not puzzle out how the centre is worked so they look like ordinary flowers.
Going from the Preemie babies to the adults. For the older folk in hospital who are suffering with one ailment or another related to old age another piece of knitting is about to be knitted. Its called a ‘Twiddlemuff’ it is done in stocking stitch on size 5 needles and uses the double knit wool doubled again. Photo will follow.
news on Benji will follow in another blog. At the moment he is looking out the front window and every now and again turns to tell me ‘when can I have my tea?’ so better do as hem asks!
