I just used a utility knife and a metal straightedge.  That was the easy part.   Drilling all those holes is the fun stuff.!! Cheesy

I wonder if one of my bookbinding machines would punch the holes.  I might try that on the discarded pieces to see if it works. Would sure save a lot of effort.

that1girl - those choc cupcakes/muffins look scrummy  Tongue makes me hungry!

I have finished my 1940's glove and despite looking far to narrow for any real woman, I can actually get it on!



I probably wont complete the pair as I was really just trying out the new (to me) technique of knitting a glove flat on 2 needles. Maybe if I'm short a present at Xmas time I might - I have one tiny friend who these will fit.


I wanted to share with you all a small funny. So I've started my next project last night - a shawl for me.



The yarn is a present brought back from my parents recent holiday to the Isle of Skye. it is hand dyed and super soft  Grin

First I had to wind the hank to a ball to work from, so I padded through to the living room and smiled at my DH if I could interupt his evening to lend me his hands for 10 mins. This was the result:



This pic just about sums up our lives - gaming, crafting, superheroes and co-operation - we make a great team, if I do say so myself  Grin My DH is the best!

holy cow K-star!  That is so awesome!  I am going to go over and look at the details when I am done posting here!

that1girl--what a fun way to do your nails!  They look like those crayon melts paintings!

bushbaby--making gloves is tough! I usually go up a needle size and it seems to give me a better fit...isn't the pinky finger fun? NOT! Grin

Also, the oaklet is a lovely shawl...I just finished a shawl using that lime green yarn I sent to you as well...I haven't posted a picture yet. ha I think your hubby is wonderful!

pinokeeo--those record album journals are fantastic!!  I bet they were difficult to drill! (I put them in the challenge for you Grin)...I know they took a while to do...

These were actually a lot easier than knitting in the round, it's just the sizing's were for women from 1940's and they were obviously a lot more slender than women today. The pattern states the width of the hand just above the palm should be 3"  - that is pretty narrow.

I haven't found the right pattern for the green yarn yet, but if this shawl works out ok I might try a more tricky lace pattern. Haven't really done any lace knitting yet.  Cheesy

I have a lot of vintage patterns, and yes, they are tiny! That is such a pretty pattern...love the colors!

I am working on another shawl using peacock colors...I much prefer doing lace shawls as I get very bored doing the stockinette body of the shawl...this one has the stockinette but has a nice lace border to reach as a goal! Grin

btw--that yarn is so lovely...I am sure you have some lovely yarns in your country...so jealous!
