Master Clicky has finished now his GCSEs, and school as well. The secondary school that he and Miss Clicky went to is now no longer in our family life. This feels a bit strange.
I have made another 40 minute tote from The Purl Bee, for Master Clicky's head of year. This last year hasn't always been a smooth one for him but she was very supportive and I wanted to give her something that wasn't the usual box of chocolates. As this is the 4th one I have made, I am getting quicker, but I'm not yet down to 40 minutes! This one is also made from tea towels. The straps don't have a green tinge, just strange light.
The reverse has a geometric print.
All in all I'm pleased with the results. It is a little narrower than I had hoped, but I used one tea towel for the lining and the other for the outer, therefore I didn't have much fabric to play with!
My iPad has been out of action for a week or so while the glass was being fixed, so work on my Daybreak Shawl has progressed nicely. There will be lots of pesky ends to deal with but heyho! I'm nearing the border, but the rows are getting so big. At knitting group yesterday I managed 6 rows in 2 hours :-)
I'm very busy at work at the moment, we have the end of year production with all it's props and costumes to sort, books to be archived, mountains of filing to do, sports day...............oh! and children to work with too.
I leave you with my latest gardening gloves, snazzy aren't they? I couldn't decide which I liked the most, spots or plain, so I bought them all.
Righto, I'll see you all soon.
Bye for now..........Clicky Needles.
