Created by the lovely Jo over at Serendipitous Stitching, a way to show what kind and wonderful people crafting folks are with their lovely gifts they send out to others.
The very laid back rules are quite simple and can be found on Jo's sign up page at the top of her blog and Septembers link up post is here.
Not a lot of crafting recently, but I have completed a gift for DH. For my birthday I was gifted some pure alpaca wool for a local alpaca farm.
I came across a lovely pattern for some hand warmers and as DH suffers with arthritis, I thought it would be nice to make him a pair to keep his hands warm in the winter months.
The last stitch was put in last night and here they are ...
He's very pleased with them and so am I. Not sure I like the pure alpaca wool, its a little prickly to knit with. One of the ladies at the knit group is knitting with dyed 4 ply alpaca from a farm on the Isle of Wight and that seems to be so much softer, perhaps one day i'll give alpaca a try again.
I'd like to take the opportunity of my GG post to wish Jo a very Happy Birthday today. I did send out a little note as I had been looking in my stash to see if I had some of the thread she is looking for for a project she is to start, unfortunately, I didn't have any, but I did come across something else that I thought she might be able to make use of, so that was sent off as a little surprise for her.
HAPPY BIRTHDAY JO, I hope you have a wonderful day
Blessings to you all
