I haven't done much of my knitting this past week, because I was concentrating on finishing the t-shirt I was making myself.
I finished it Tuesday evening, so yesterday (Wednesday) Mam took this photo for me.
It's nice to have an item of clothing that's a bit big on me instead of clothes that hardly fit. :)
I could have made it a bit smaller though... I allowed more than I needed to for room to move in the shirt even if it were to shrink in the wash (as clothes often do). But I'll know for next time.
I wont need to get more wool for quite some time. Eleri gave me a couple of bags full of wool this past week. It was among stuff of her Mam's that she's clearing out, and when she found out I was knitting she asked if I wanted it. I said I would appreciate it, so she brought it down here for me. There's LOADS of it... Black wool, white wool, lemon wool, blue wool, pink wool, multi coloured wool... It's all there! And some of it is proper expensive stuff too! I actually ran out of labeling tape labeling the balls of wool. I've had to order more before I can carry on, and I haven't even labeled half of what she gave me. My wool collection has at least tripled with all this wool, and at least half of it is brand new balls that were still in sealed packages.
I asked Eleri if she wanted any money for it - after all, there's a lot of it, and it must have cost her Mam a lot of money - but she wouldn't accept anything for it, so I brought her a present to say, "thank you," (as I mentioned in yesterday's post). I didn't want to just take all that wool without at least some sign of appreciation.
OK, that's it for this week's craft update.
