Sally-Boots, The Heligan Giant and Swish

28 Mar

1   I finished the Sally-boots for Dan’s new daughter just as he finished our fence. We all feel pleased.


2   Lucy has been working in the Lost Gardens of Heligan helping to restore The Heligan Giant with the sculptors, Sue Hill and her brother, Pete.

3   Went to the Swish at Krowji with Lucy this evening and we both found things we can wear in Senegal. A Swish, for those who don’t know is a clothes swap.

    Those Sally boots are adorable – never have I seen such cute little knotted things 😀
    Must learn to knit now!

      Thank you for your lovely comments. I do love making things be they foodie things or little knitted things. I’d love to teach you but that would be hard at a distance!

      There’s a wonderful ‘Sleeping maid’ there too. It’s a place I need to visit soon!

    The Sally boots are marvelous. My mother knitted all her life. I can still hear the clicking of the needles. I used to untangle the skeins of wool for her, gave me a great dexterity for later in life…

      I’m glad I brought a good memory to the fore for you, Grandfathersky. You reminded me that I used to hold the skeins on outstretched arms while Granny wound the wool into balls. Now the wool all comes ready in small balls (in the UK at least) so my children, Grandchildren won’t have that memory.
