Danni and Charlie do craft

Two ladies and a whole lotta wool

Crafters break – moving and its power to destroy time/I did start some daisy knit

So, nearly a month break from the craft blog! Shame on me. Moving has turned my life into a never-ending maze of cardboard boxes and thus the knitting slipped off the radar.

It’s a sad story, I know. Plus side is planting out veggies has been very much on the agenda – so at least one meditative practice has been adhered to:

Prior to the moving chaos, I had begun a daisy stitch project. I initially purchased the 100% cotton wool to make socks, and then in my knitting naivety realised it wasn’t the appropriate wool for sock-making. Thus, a plan was born for a daisy stitch cushion cover:

This was knit up on 3mm needles.

Now, I’m not sure what I think of daisy stitch. I knit quite tightly and this makes daisy stitch quite clunky for me; slow progress all round. Still I shall persevere and make up my mind once I have a finished product in hand.

Guess that means I best get on and pick up the needles again.

Here are some shots of me doing the stitch itself:

About thisischarlie

I'm Charlie Parker, one half of the craft duo Danni and Charlie do craft. I love crafting in all its guises, from baking to knitting to growing vegetables (which most definitely IS a craft). I am all about local - local wool, local shops, local communities. I am a novice drawer and doodler, my plan is to be better and do my own illustration zine and then hit the road with my wool and bearded Canadian. These are my dreams. Thank you for visiting my blogs.
