I hope this finds you keeping safe and well inside during the lockdown. We are all well here, so far. I am doing ok at staying in, having the garden to potter about in certainly helps here. I’m not sure my husband and daughter would say the same as they are far more used to being active and out-and-about than me. However, the sun is shining again and when I look out of the window, it is hard to believ that there could be anything wrong at all. The birds are singing and Spring is most definitely springing.
Well, I stopped procrastinating this weekend and finally sorted through my pile of works-in-progress. I am completely ashamed of myself, letting the pile get so big. But, I’m not too ashamed to say how many items are partly made – 20! Most of them are from back issues of Let’s Knit and LGC Knitting and Crochet magazines.
I have started on the three lions as I think they will take the least time to finish. So far I have a gold one and a pink one that look very odd without any mane! These have been knitted using oddments from my enormous stash (most of which is currently sat in a large basket on the landing due to my craft space being used as an office). It’s a design by Steffi Hochfellner and it is a lovely one to knit.
I have made one before which was very popular with some of the younger people I know. As you can see, he is quite magnificent with his multi-colour mane and I will spare his embarrassment and not show the world what he looks like bald!
When I’ve finished the lion triplets I might take them for an adventure in the jungle (aka my garden).
Stay safe and happy crafting
