Here’s the Baktus scarf, which has now been washed and is awaiting its new owner. I met up with some friends at the weekend (some seniors who we’ve known for years but don’t get to see very often). They saw me knitting this scarf. I had just been saying to Tai Chi Man that I didn’t know who I was going to give this to when it was finished (I love the yarn but I tend not to wear blue, unless its denim jeans). So while I was talking to this couple, I had the idea that I’d give the scarf to the wife when it was done.
It just has to finish drying and I will drop it around (they live only 10 minutes drive away).
I made this bag today. Do you recognise the fabric? It’s the same one I used to line my knitted bag recently. I had just enough left to make a good size bag (about 12 by 15 inches). I had a purpose here – the bag was designed to hold a couple of books, a card, a lemon and a head of garlic. Seems like a strange combination, I know, but I have a friend with a cold, and I wanted to take her a “feel better” kit. I also made some mulligatawny soup and took that too.
It feels so good to give away things that I have made. People are always so appreciative.
