Made me feel happy that I have an abundant supply of colour waiting to be used.
Anyway I was going to make a scarf..
the pattern I thought I might utilize was out of a 1971 vogue book called Spinning Wheel
I was planning on 'bricking'the motifs so they didn't line up
This is the original pattern
I started out okay and formed the central flower in orange-yellow
But when changing colour I must have turned my work over and instead of the ensuing pattern laying flat it started to turn up. This I did not realize until later.
I really shouldn't crotchet into the wee small hours of the night!
I quite liked the scallop pattern that the edging was made from and decided to continue upwards and make a bag of some sort.
An apple bag of course.
Today is my younger sisters birthday and she will be receiving a totally frivolous apple snug. I'm sure she will appreciate it.. what woman whom turns 43 and asks for rollerblades for her birthday also wouldn't appreciate a totally silly gift? I'm sure we will both laugh while we sip champagne on her wonderful balcony over looking the farm. On that note I'll be gone for a week staying in Canberra and Sydney part holiday part work. I will take plenty of snaps for show and tell later. Really looking forward to a catch up with little sis.
