For the past few weeks I've been making these little felted pincushions with a class in school - this is half of them. I wish you could see the stitching - it is the first time many of them have ever held a needle - the levels of concentration at even trying to thread the needle were wonderful to behold! But they're now done - thanks in no uncertain terms to Land End who sent me a huge box full of jumpers to felt - all free of charge. Their generosity has been amazing.
Note for Elizabeth:-
Warren - in the side bar - is the husband of a friend who used to run knitting club with me. He knows I have a great weakness for yarn and was highly amused at my pledge to not buy yarn until the Knitting and Stitching show at Alexandra Palace in London in October. He is so certain that I will fail in my efforts that he has pledged £1 to a charity of my choice for every finished object I produce between now and then. With nearly 7 months still to go, he need not be worried. Even I doubt my will power!
Another note for Elizabeth:-
The 'finished projects' is how many things I've completed since taking the no yarn pledge - there are 3 things on it, so that's £3 heading off to my favourite charity - providing of course I keep the promise...
