Life in the Dale
They obviously haven't seen me knit!It looks pretty dire whatever I try.
I read that article online - very interesting.For me blogging came first and then inspired by it, I've learnt to knit (badly) and crochet :)
Oh my lordy that is awesome!!! Ha ha!!I am a friend of Cuckoo's and have finally taken up crochet. Taken me months to fathom the treble!!! Not making anything, still just practising my stitches and rows.Long way off crocheting a bus cover!Gem x
Oh my gosh, is that what it looks like ? ? ?? ?
I saw this article too, gotta love that bus, what a great bumper! Interesting that they were suggesting knitting and crochet is becoming less kooky and more mainstream again. Feels a bit like its going full circle, as when I was a child most of the adult women I knew knitted or sewed regularly (less so corchet) although there was definitely a more functional aspect to it and less doing it just for enjoyment - yes, I was the child in homemade school jumpers!
Crochet, I mean!!
I hadn't knit for over twenty years until I was inspired to pick up my needles again after seeing all the gorgeous socks in blogland. I've recently learned to crochet too.
I've arrived here whilst blog hopping and stayed for a bit looking at your lovely blog. I think I'll stick to knitting smaller items for the moment. Your yogurt pot muffins look good. I must try those out.Hope your recovery goes well. Don't try to overdo things.Love from Mumxx
Last year our city was decorated with large knitted scarves around poles and posts. It looked so cool!! Around the same time I joined a friend for coffee in a smart cafe. Sitting close by, a group f women knitting. It was such a blast from the past. I had to go up to them and ask about their group. They said they sometimes meet at the pub!It's great to see this emergence of a craft we thought may die out. Chris
WO-OW !! Very pretty !Glad that you're feeling better Andrea !Have a nice vacation and take care girl ! x
I do like this yarn-bombing. It makes things so colorful, haven't seen any of it in Yorkshire though have you? We should start it!!
Amazing!!!Just catching up in reverse order, hope you are on the mend!Gill xx
Oh no, I missed it. I'm VERY tempted to learn to knit or crochet due to blog reading and was thrilled to find our own little yarn bombers here in Bristol which I posted about a week or so OK. It's fabulous and would love to take part!
Imagine getting this to work every day. No more Monday blues... C.x
That is one amazing bus! You have a lovely blog, very nice work!
Hi AndreaJust popped over to say hello and hope you are doing well - glad Im not the only one not posting as regularly as before - i'm only just managing one a week these days after months of fairly regular blogging!Miss seeing your lovely crochet makes!Gill xx
I saw an article on yarn bombing in the Lion Brand Yarn catalog last year. It was amazing. Someone even did a water tower!
Now there's a bus I wouldn't mind getting to work!
Thank you so much for taking the time to comment here - I love to read what you have to say! x
