Darrell and I love would love to surf, but, as there aren’t many waves in Wolverhampton, we have to contain our surfing to the worldwide web. Yesterday we found this wonderful blog http://magweedsmayhem.blogspot.com/ and this BRILLIANT hanging basket - a veritable 5 a day in knitted form.
When we saw it we just sat in silence, the only expression we can use to sum up how we felt is awe and wonder. It is, the most wonderful knitted object we have ever seen.
There is even a knitting pattern on the blog to follow …… so we have found some wool, some needles and have printed off the instructions so we can start to make our own hanging basket ………….. all we need now is to learn to knit.
Darrell is attempting the leaves and I am trying to do the strawberries, but we may be trying to knit before we can purl as they say in the knitting world.
It’s also a bit spooky, knitting has featured a lot in our lives this week. It could be an omen to put our X Factor dreams on hold and take up knitting instead.
