Archive for the ‘The Woolly Brew’ Category

That seems to be the general theme for me today!  Not that I’m complaining, that’s the best sort of day for me :). Packaged up a parcel of baby bonnets to send to The Woolly Brew for donating on to Ninewells Hospital – really pleased with how they came out.

Finished snowflake bonnet number 2 and will be trying to start on another item for the Christmas list ASAP.  Must upload some pictures tonight.

*** UPDATE ***
 Pictures as promised of all works to date *happy face*

Since I’ve been put on Garden Leave from work I decided to fill my time wisely, so I’m catching up on old movies and knitting…..never a bad combination!  Following on from the previous post, I’ve been working away on the Preemie Bonnets…..rather proud of them, even if I say so myself tee hee

What do you think?  I even made a wee pair of mittens to go with one of the hats 🙂

The Woolly Brew: tiny hats update: We’ve got 35 hats for Ninewells in Dundee!

Been knitting away like mad recently after seeing this on The Woolly Brew’s website.  Its for a fabulous cause and a good way to clear out the wool stash!

It’s got me thinking about what other organisations out there would appreciate charitable knitted donations?  Worth having a look in the local area methinks!

On a side note, been working on a patchwork blanket with a difference.  Recently got hold of some samples of 200 knitted blocks for blankets, throws and afghans so been trying new techniques and seaming them together to make a funky blanket – it will always do for the dog or even in the caravan if it gets too chilly.

The Woolly Brew……
Such an amazing wee wool shop I found in Pittenweem The Woolly Brew

I visited there (twice) last week when we were down in Fife for a break, such a fab wee boutique and the lassies that work there are so helpful and lovely to chat with.
There was the most lovely selection of Debblie Bliss & Rico wools and many many more.  It was so easy to spend lots of time pouring over the different yarns and different colours…….too many to pick from – hence the 2 visits I had to make (much to the husband’s dismay!)

Well worth a visit if you’re in the Fife area!
