Well, the globe is finished. I’m not sure what to do with it now, though: the toddler twinnage don’t seem ready to consider our speck-like position on a beautiful green-blue planet, so its educational potential remains unfulfilled. Instead, one half of the twinnage tentatively asked whether the globe might be employed in a game of football. I frowned, and directed them towards the perfectly serviceable leather ball in the garden. They slouched off to kick some gravel at the fence as an expression of dissatisfaction with my parenting*.

Now, on to weightier matters: the yarn-bombing of our brewery home. The components are almost ready, and I’m happy to report that probably-disapproving-neighbours have sold up and moved out ( 🙂 ), to be replaced by lovely-and-friendly-neighbours. I’ve been busy knitting and crocheting bits with which to cover the railings, and preparing trimmings such as these:-
Pattern here, although I didn’t entirely follow the instructions.
I’m so excited about revealing the finished result. Not long now…..
* I am exaggerating a bit. The toddler twinnage are surprisingly kind-natured and well-behaved, despite my parenting. I have absolutely no idea how this has happened, and certainly won’t be authoring any parenting manuals.
