    Lovely Babeth….I can’t knit…I sew …but am too impatient to knit.

    Big whool and big needles, a week job !

    Even with big wool and big needles…I would need a lifetime …my mother was a great knitter…she said my fingers were like sausages for knitting…impossible to learn.

    having said that I have a lifetime of making curtains…soft furnishings…

    you are very clever!

    The opposite for me, my mum taught me to knit (I can still remember me knitting a tiny orange scarf for my teddy bear while my mum was attending a tupperware meeting …), but couldn’t tame the sewing machine. I  just couldn’t be gentle enough with the pedal …. Thanks to Covid, I’ve borrowed a sewing machine, looked at it in the eyes and took my courage in both hands. The sewing machine was kind enough to me and I did manage to do a lot of tissu masks (it was the “you can’t find any mask” time). I gave back the machine to the owner (my boss) and that was the end of a short love story (not my boss, the machine !).

    Thank you , it’s not from my dog but a friend who had a lovely rough collie.  Unfortunately it’s not wearable because it itches. I will be taking it with my spinning wheel to an Expo Vente that my patchwork club is doing on Sunday  in Plumelin (56).

    You talking about the jumper? :unsure:

    21st November 2021 at 7:54 pm #563507

    Yes, I’m on a knitting thread :-)

    I thought that when I wrote it Babeth, but still couldn’t resist :rose:

    I don’t think you can knit a bike Deboer but I may be wrong.

    23rd November 2021 at 5:27 pm #563643

    Does anyone fancy a jumper for his bike ? :yahoo:
