Mr Nicsknots is also on holiday, however, so far, every time I have suggested that he may like to take over child-care for an hour or so so that I can sew or take photos or do Nicsknots related things without simultaneously entertaining J and L, there has been a sharp intake of breath and he has run off to his den but today I spotted a chink in his amour; he wanted to go to the shops after he had taken J and L to their tennis lessons.
Admittedly he wanted to go and buy paint but food is like paint and since we have no food in the cupboards because I have been playing the 'You are at home too so lets see who cracks first and goes to the shops' game, I used the opportunity to write a list and sent him off with two children for the afternoon.
Over 3 hours and £220 later, they returned. Looby had a trophy for being player of the week, J had a new tap for the kitchen and M had random food. Random because he always buys rubbish but also because J and L had taken complete advantage of Daddy taking them shopping and told him that Mummy always buys (insert random food that we have never eaten in our lives before) things.
I don't care though because I got so much work done. So many bags finished, so many photos taken and so much other stuff done.
So here is my new fav fabric;
I haven't decided if this is going to be used for knitting bags and rolls. What do you think, should I just leave it for my girlie bags?
While the sun was shining, I also got some photos of my 'Spring Flowers' bags and roll together.
The dpn/crochet hook roll is featured in 'Inside Crochet' and The Knitter' magazines this month. I was a bit annoyed at the photo in 'The Knitter' when I saw it because you couldn't see anything of the roll other than the corner sticking out of the top of a mass-produced bag but hey ho!
