Scruffy Badger! Two colleagues have declared they want to knit this snood, so I think it’s a winner. I’ll be in touch for a postal address.
Thank you all for your memories of childhood knitted items. I think I could have drafted a Roald Dhal-esque short story from our collective memories. The grandpa with a mischevious twinkle in his eye. The stork with its own knitted nest. The child with a centipede crawling under her arm. (Tickle, tickle!) You couldn’t make it up and we didn’t have to – it was all there in our childhoods, thanks to relatives and friends who made children feel utterly, utterly loved. All with a couple of sticks and some wool.
I’m so glad you shared these stories with me and thank you for entering.
In other news, I’ve added my first blog entry for the year to Tilly’s Crafty Christmas Club. Check it out here.
