I hope everyone got through storm Eunice and Franklin okay. I know Franklin is still raging and I am keeping everyone in my prayers.
As I had to batten down the hatches like most people on Friday, I had some time to myself and was able to get lots of stitching done. I am now almost halfway through page 10 on Butterfly Kisses!
Can’t wait to get this page done as there is little variation in the colours. I will keep plugging away at it. I am also still working on Shepherdess but at a much slower rate so it’s not worth showing the progress on that yet.
I also managed to get my pencil and paper out and work on a drawing I am doing for an eventual watercolour! I really hope I can do lots more watercolour this year.
Knitwise, I am working on Mrs. Tiggy-winkle! She will be about a foot tall. I had the pleasure of working on this while sat in a garden centre cafe, as I waited for my car to be repaired at a garage nearby.
So that is the back of the underskirt. It was fairly challenging as I had to do 168 rows alternating between the blue and gold, and then I had to pick up stitches at both sides for the base and Mrs. Tiggy-winkle’s top.
This is the right side of the underskirt and the beginnings of Mrs. Tiggy-winkle’s top. I must say I am really enjoying knitting this!
I haven’t given up on the socks, I will return to them at some point, I just found them a struggle but I will finish them in 2022!
Thanks for reading and happy stitching x
