So…the first good post? Tricky one. Like many others I have started this blog to track my progress in teaching myself to sew, knit and make stuff! If nothing else I hope to look back at these first few posts in a few years and say ‘Wow I am so much better now than I was then!’. Hopefully some other people will also read and enjoy this blog just as I enjoy reading others blogs. I read so many now that it’s actually hard to get in much book reading!
When I first started thinking about writing a blog (and named it), I was knitting, knitting, knitting. Since then I have upgraded to knitting, sewing, knitting….here’s a sum up of past projects:From top left, clockwise: Wool and the Gang’s Diana top, Baby Ella Blanket & Baby booties, Wool and the Gang’s Woolitz & Mary Sweater.Wool and the Gang’s Zion Lion for Kids x 4!
The hats were put to good use by these little monkeys over a cold Christmas season..From top left, clockwise: Isabella wearing Wool and the Gang’s Zion Lion for Kids, Julietta wearing Wool and the Gang’s Zion Lion for Kids, Julietta and Rory having a stand off.From top left, clockwise: Wool and the Gang’s Sugar Ray Mittens, Wool and the Gang’s Snood dog for kids, Wool and the Gang’s Tala tank top & the beginnings of my stash.
Well that’s a selection…I have been pretty busy…but I think that’s enough for one post. Next one will be sewing projects!
If anyone is reading this please let me know if you know of any decent collage-making websites. I have tried a few today but I only want simple, clean-looking plain collages and I want to upload pictures from my computer and from Instagram.
Any help would be welcome!!
