So, in the interests of actually blogging (with pictures…) before even more time passes, I’m officially ignoring what day of the week it is (I’ve been turned around so many times the only way I now know what day it is is because I’m dogsitting).
I also forgot to take crafting pictures before I left Bristol, so instead you’re all going to get my Salisbury crafts.
Starting with this giant blanket. I tend not to do anything straight when I can help it, so this is deliberately knit diagonally (or as close to diagonally I can get without turning it into mitred squares).
This has been a WIP for a long long time (I’m avoiding checking ravelry to see how long) because a) it’s in Salisbury, where I’m not most of the time, and b) when I’m in Salisbury I’m usually working on something else. I just fancied pulling it out today. Don’t worry, I have more scraps than what’s left in that WW bag, I’m not about to run out 🙂
The other main WIP I have here is the butterfly fairy.
I’m working this right to left because the pattern is too wide for the scroll rods. It’s going to take agessss to finish (see reasons above). But it’s kinda hard to mind enough to actually move this to Bristol because it’s so big and would still take ages to finish. This way I get to pretend to myself that it would get finished earlier if I actually worked on it…Please note that isn’t actually the bottom yet…this thing is BIG.
And those are my two WIPs in Salisbury. Quite often I bring other projects (like the cross stitch seagull I brought this time), but they really *live* in Bristol and travel with me, whereas these two stay in Salisbury all the time. Next time while I’m still here I might show off what stash is here as a reference for myself!
