Where was I?
Some time before Christmas mum and I were making scarves.
I took mum to an appointment in Great Missenden and wandered into Rainbow Silks. There was a knitted bag on the table there calling to me.
It was made from Trapilho Selvedge Edge yarn
It is t-shirt material cut into strips about 2cm wide which then curls up on itself into a yarn about 7mm wide. I had to buy some 25mm needles but it was fun.
I'll cut a long story short because I dont have any photos at the moment but i made 2 bags.
Then I went back for more Trapilho.
And then some more.
I made a few with the bamboo handles and sold them before Christmas. I lined them with plain black cotton.
I need to take some photos of the others really.
I also made a few of these:
because they were a bit of fun.
But then my knitting kind of ground to a halt after Christmas. I had a cross stitch I needed to finish and I think the scarves had ground me down a bit.
So that was it for a while..........
until the Easter holidays.
