SAL March Finishes

March really did seem to fly by so quickly but the cooler weather resulted in some productive knitting. As we will be downsizing in the future (hopefully sooner rather than later as we have already been waiting for nearly 3 years for a townhouse to become available where we would like to live) there is a need to finish off UFO's that have been stored away for far too long. I know some of these items will be passed on as fund raising items as I no longer have a need for them or my taste has changed since stitching them. I have also done a lot of knitting of children's beadies for a local worthwhile cause. This is one way of reducing the wool stash and using up even small lengths of yarn. The first 15 in the photo have been delivered and it is quite easy to produce one hat a day so I am hopeful that the stash will soon be back to an acceptable size very soon. Mrs. Waddelow's Huswif is a design by Ellen Chester of 'With My Needle'. It was fun to stitch and had been sitting for sometime waiting to be made up - not my favourite job. The scissor fob is a design by Little House Needleworks but I feel it is too large and would much rather a smaller fob. Hope everyone enjoys a happy Easter with warmer days in the north as Spring arrives and lovely autumn days and cooler nights in the southern hemisphere.
