~Encore de Wristwarmers~

This trusted and loved pattern from   Churchmouse Yarns and Teas has made a reappearance, this time to make a birthday present for my best friend's birthday.  Modelled here by daughter L, with her glorious nails - I couldn't subject you to my hands which are those of a scullery maid from Downton Abbey...
Knitted in the round with wooden heart buttons from eBay
Small dog was desperately trying to get in on the action...

Excuse my bedding flapping on the washing line behind...

Vintage Vicki blogged about the emotional guidance scale earlier this week. It made me realise, apart from 'appreciation' (for life, family and health) on the positive upward spiral, all my current feelings and thoughts are on the downward spiral. Including some not very attractive attributes I have to say.   I hope this accounts for my bloggy absence without too much explanation, but as I keep being told (if I had a pound for each time I would be rich!)...."You will get there..."   


  1. Sally, its lovely to see you back blogging again. Those wrist warmers are lovely and I still havent mastered the art of knitting in the round. I have so many things I want to do but my mum is so poorly at the mo and I think I will be needed more and more as the months go on. Everything will have to go on the back burner. If you fancy a chat you know where I am though. Take care, love Anne

  2. Sally I hope you are keeping ok. The wrist warmers are fab, someone told me that crochet and knitting is good therapy so go for it!
    Take care x

  3. If you sold the wristwarmers in a on line shop I'd have a pair. They are beautiful.....lucky that friend of yours!


Please feel welcome to get in touch or leave a comment - I really appreciate it. Sally x
