Progress of sorts

So, I had the interview for the little job - it was as a Support Assistant in a primary school. It was actually a lot better than I had anticipated. I worried that my first interview for over 20 years would be absolutely dreadful but it wasn't so bad and I think I actually did reasonably well (and for me to say that about myself is a big deal!). However, I haven't heard anything and I really don't expect to get the post but I am just really thrilled that I got as far as the interview, so yay for me...there's hope left ;-)

What else to chat about? Hmmm, can't even post a pic of what I've been up to in the knitting/crochet department because they have mainly been secret Christmas projects. Well, I could show you the dalek inspired gloves I knitted for Mr A from a pattern on Ravelry, he doesn't read my blog. Here they are...they look better in real life, believe me - really 'daleky'!

Now that I have looked through some photos, I see I have got a few pics to show after all. These below are some fingerless gloves I knitted for myself from a ball of Noro yarn that I had been meaning to 'do something with' for several years.

And these are 'ninja' fingerless gloves for Mr A (crocheted).

...and fingerless gloves for Miss L (crocheted). Bit of a theme here...

Ah, this was a lacey-ish scarf knitted from sock weight yarn. I'm not that keen on it, so will probably re-use the wool for something else.

Oh, and my ripple blanket is coming on. It's bigger than it was in this pic and much more vibrant in the flesh. I love the ripple's growing on me lol.

Oh yes, and my first ever crocheted 'garment'. A little cardi for my new niece.

That turned into quite a few pics! And I'm not the only one to have had the needles out - Miss L knitted a lovely scarf for her great gran who is 91 (we call her Nana) and she is going to give her it at Christmas.

It's a lovely colour and so cosy. Nana will love it :)

I hope you are all having a lovely Friday xxx

Wow! You have been busy! I love all those fingerless gloves. Now, this is where I am not at all crafty. My nan taught me to knit right-handed and I'm left-handed. the result is I am incredibly slow (a pair of baby bootees took several years - the child was in school when I finished them!!!) My Mum's knitting was incredibly fine and my Aunt has won awards at the county show for hers, so I'm rather a disappointment!
