See pirates, it IS a knitting club!
Aza - I had a knitted bikini, but that was as a child when, frankly, it matters less. Pale blue with pink trim. And it didn't stretch when it got wet, but it did feel like it had been knitted from plastic string. Nice!
I know what yoe mean about wanting to try all these things, but real life gets in the way. I'm dabbling in making clothes for my god daughter and her tiny tears doll. She used to be mine, a present from my god-mother and mum made her a whole wardrobe of fabulous clothes. i can now do repectable gathers, but have trouble with zips
Cross stitch is just a matter of being able to count - or at least, it is the way i do it.
Ooooooo, I will post piccies of my cross stitch series. Had a phone call from my framer last week to say that they last one is framed and ready for collection.
Does anyone here do/have done bobbin lace making? I used to about 15 years ago and still have all the bits and pieces in the attic.
This is my current work-in-progress
And I also used to do lots of hardanger. I made a duvet cover with lots of hardanger square inserts. It was beautiful until the cat was poorly on the bed and I could not get rid of the stains
I own lots of tat and I probably will buy more when I get to the Metro Centre tomorrow.
There's a village near where I grew up which is quite famous for its lacemaking. They revived the classes a few years ago and it's very popular. I've never tried it though/
