new challenges

March 11, 2023

Abby decided to learn to knit

using the tiny needles in her knitting basket and some very fine handspun 2 ply silk

we did manage to finish a scarf

but the human is not thinking small enough for Hittys yet – it will take some time!

and the scarf is bear size

so Abby happily traded with Gilbert and now they both have a more appropriate size

there is peace in the small people’s world (yes, I think of them all as people)

 working steadily on the 100 day project

page 10 is finished and page 11 started — half way through the 100 days


I’m surprised that each page is so different while trying to use very small scraps and thrums for the basic stitches

it is time to start putting the pages together so it isn’t a long job when the stitching is finished

I’ve had a rather trying week – it was like falling down the rabbit hole

all my electronic systems stopped working – everything – internet,  WiFi, no Ipad and even the T.V.

my service supplier doesn’t like to make house calls – they want to talk you through it on the telephone

finally, after 3 difficult phone calls, when the first two were disconnected, they booked an appointment for a technician to come check it out

fortunately he was a very capable, pleasant young man and got everything going again

in this new technical world you become completely cut off from the outside world

it made me think about what happens in an emergency – like when the often predicted BIG earthquake happens??

Abby has requested a pair of overalls like Gilberts – I’m off to see if I can get the sizing correct

    I do love that right hand page, with the contrast between the black and white checks and the colours on top. And Abby’s scarf looks so cosy!

    Your little people are very lucky to have such a talented and generous human.

      Sue – I think it is the other way around, the bears and assorted others have been great fun and I’ve really enjoyed sharing them on the blog.
