Thank you for popping in to KSC
I have had a bit of a knitting spree this week though neither of the projects took very long to make.
This is a new waistcoat for MIL, Mollie. Over the past 30 years I have knitted her a lot of waistcoats as she always likES to wear one. I don't think she has ever thrown any of them away so now they are all too large and some are quite shabby looking. I thought she might like one that fitted so I made this simple one in just 2 days. The back is plain and the pattern on the front is really easy. Will take it for her next time we visit and hope it fits.
If you have ever visited anyone in a Care Home or hospital you will have noticed that packs of tissues are like phone cards are to prisoners. When Mollie used to be in hospital or the Care Home she would ask if we would bring packs of tissues every time we visited. It turned out that she donated them as Bingo prizes or gave them to fellow patients to make friends. With this in mind I have made some Tissue Sacks to take to a Care Home near to us as they could be used for the Christmas Fayre or for Bingo prizes. I have made some suitable for male and some female. They don't take long to make at all so if they go down ok I will make some more for other care homes as I still have mountains of wool to use. No two are the same as the wool varies in thickness and the knitter gets to carries away with a TV programme?
Have a great weekend
Love Chrissie xx
