I’ve finished the pouch from The Last Minute Knitted Gift book. Its for my daughter and the self pattern yarn has actually turned out quite nice. My Mum didn’t believe that I made it as she thought that as a new knitter I wouldn’t have mastered the skill of changing the colours and making patterns so soon. She asked my husband, who just laughed, whether I made it and then asked me which Etsy shop I bought it from. I had to tell her that I cheated with the self pattern yarn. Hee! Hee! I love my Mum, she is so cute and fun to tease.
I went to Lewisham to go a fabric shop there with my Mum and daughter on Saturday to see whether they sell the fabrics I need to make the tissue box cover and sewing basket from the 80s sewing tutorials. I have to say that it is not a place to take a 4 year old. There were sharp edges sticking out on the shelves and several huge gaps in the floor. It was very crowded.
