After another busy week, I bring you the sum total of my knitting efforts – Digger has been knitted and stuffed, the kittylow is off the needles but has yet to be sewn together, and I’m off to another wet and windy field!
I am once again tutoring for Shooting Roots – we will be making puppets and I’m quite excited about the whole thing. I had loads of material scraps I was going to take along, but I forgot to pack them/couldn’t fit a mouse in my car once I was done packing! Such is life…anyway, I will be back on Tuesday, so you’ll have a WIP Wednesday post next week and silence until then.
If you miss me *so* much that you can’t bear the silence, I do have some things in the pipeline for the Plutonium Muffins Facebook page, so head on over here to check it out.
I ordered some eyes for Digger from Vietnam. I used Etsy and I’m not so impressed with the customer service thing of the actual site. I didn’t get any notification as to whether or not they had been shipped, and after a week and a half of wondering where they were I got my act together and checked – well, they had been shipped, but weren’t going to arrive for another two weeks.
I would have just gone into a shop in London if I’d known – the only reason I ordered them online was because I wanted to get Digger finished before I went to Towersey! Anyway, he’s as far gone as I can get him – here’s a hilarious exploded view of body-parts.
Despite not being able to get much work done on the kitty pillow for most of the last week, my grans and I had three days of hanging out before I left Devon for good, and most of that was either spent unpicking one of Wonder-Gran’s knitting projects (just don’t ask) or knitting on the pillow. Wonder-Mum and I then had a work/TV/wine session on my last night and I ended up with a few more ends to sew in, the seaming to do and stuffing the dear thing.
I’m looking forward to having it on my bed!
That’s all from me for now – a rather belated WIP Wednesday post as I was on the road all day yesterday, ferrying a car-load of camping equipment, Super-Granny and my knitting across the country! From September things will calm down – just a new job to look forward to…
