WOYWW....

Happy Wednesday everyone.  Another wonderful link up day with lots of other crafters.  

It's been another really busy week for me so far....I have either taken in or let out 6 pair of trousers this week as well as many many other jobs....It appears there are many men managing to shrink their trousers in the wash! [think it's called middle age spread but I wouldn't dream of saying that to them  :-) ].  This is one of my favourite jobs to do so I have really enjoyed my work so far this week.

Funday Monday was another brilliant day of chatter, giggles and of course chocolate [thanks T].  I sat knitting cos as yet my mojo is still AWOL.  I am hoping to recharge my batteries in Aberavon, South Wales for a few days so by next Wednesday you might see something a little more creative from me.  I really hope they have a good supply of mojos in South Wales so I come back refreshed.

On my desk today are the latest knitting projects I have on the go.

This is the latest little knitted hoody for one of the expected baby boys.  I love this random wool but I have to use two balls at the same time to knit matching sleeves and fronts because the repeat of colours are so big [what you can see here is a finished back and a nearly finished hood].  It's well worth the effort though cos the finished results are really lovely....I have already knit one in pink/blue and one in a turquoise random wool [and of course the white one I knit for one of my customers].



This is the pile of squares I have knit so far for the latest baby blanket.....I plan to take this away with me so by next week there may be lots more made....that is when I'm not swimming or just relaxing in the jacuzzi [did I mention I was going away for a couple of days?]




The last pic is for those who called last week and missed to get one of the yummy strawberries ....this is the third bowl full we have picked already and there are still more to ripen so please help yourselves.



Finally, before you pop over to Julia's to link up, I would like to say thanks for dropping in on me this week...I will do my best to do a return visit but don't forget I am having a few days away [how could you forget?].  I'm sure you will all forgive me cos my few days away are really badly needed....I'm physically, emotionally and mentally tired.  Have a great week.

Ummmmmmmm strawberries. I may have to try and grow some next year as they just seem to be stupidly expensive in the shops at the moment.

Am sure you are tired - you always seem to be on the go with one thing or another. Take a well-earned rest in Wales. Recharge your batteries ready for those babies arriving. Fab knit by the way.

Oh the talents your share are wonderful. Love all the color you have going on here today. So gloomy again in Iowa. Really tramatic weather patterns here lately. Have fun on your little get away. Just love the colors of your little squares. Enjoy

butlersabroad said...

I don't know how you can say creating beautiful knitted garments is mojo-less lol!! Very pretty squares too. Hope you enjoy your few days away, Sounds like you really need a break.

You're not having a few days away by any chance are you? Who will pick those strawberries? I should have made a detour on the way over from Derbyshire to strip them clean before they are wasted. Have a wonderful time and you'll get lots of knitting done as a car passenger.. .I did!
Love JoZArty x

Sue said...

Hi hun
busy as always, luv to see babies in hand knitts, yummy scrummy strawberries, thanks for the mooch, happy WOYWW, sue,x

triciasconfetti said...

Love the pattern on the squares you are knitting and the colours. My random wool wouldn't work knitting two balls as the rnadom-ness is quite small so the band id completly different to the front but it will still look good when finally get the second band done - 3cables over 17 stitches every 4 rows is taking its tool, especially as it is 4ply. Hope you find your mojo on your little holiday.

SueH said...

Oooo, more strawberries!
I haven’t had any off my plants yet but there is one that almost there….bet it won’t be very sweet Lol! I’ve also planted a Pineberry……supposed to be cross between a Pineapple and a Strawberry….should be interesting.

You may have lost your mojo but those knitting needles are really flying, just look at all those squares.

Happy Crafting
Sue

Doone said...

I think it gets busy as people rush to finish things before holidays- which reminds me - I am in Powys next week - I said I'd email twiglet...

Dxxxx

Tracey said...

Please send me a mojo if you find some! xxx

Bernie said...

Hope you have a wonderful and safe trip. Enjoy every moment and come back refreshed in body and spirit.
Blessings Bernie

MaggieC said...

Cornish clotted cream for the strawberries, please. You say your mojo is missing but you still see to be busy creating lots. I used to do blanket in squares but I always preferred to crochet squares, and knit more complicated things. Have a lovely holiday and relax by the sea.

Sarah said...

Very envious of your strawberries. I have 5 plants and the slugs keep getting to them before I do. Most disappointing. Lovely knitting projects. I love those blanket squares. xx

Morti said...

Hey there Wipso! Hope you had a nice break away and it helped you to recharge all that needed recharging. Thanks for sharing the strawbs, they were delish!
