It is a £1.00 a ball, 50% cotton and is lovely to work with and called Kon-Tiki by Stylecraft.
I have been writing down what I do as I do it so that I can do a mini tutorial , just the sizing may be of interest.
It has gradually grown and grown and I like to be able to pick it up and put it down without going wrong.
The high cotton content makes it so very soft and even though it is seems quite thin it is certainly warm on my knees.
It is still on going, not much has been done to it this week due to going back to work but it does not matter, does it?
We went to see Sophie in her panto this evening and I have to say it was really good. Due to dropping her off and picking her up I have seen the second half many times in rehearsal but not the first half. At one point I was laughing so much that I was crying.
At one point the dwarfs had to put on dressing gowns. So imagine, if you will, seven 8 year olds trying to get thin cotton dressing gowns on over their stage clothes quickly but with some of the sleeves having been left the wrong way round and saying some lines all at the same time!! I needed another tissue at this stage. It was one of those unplanned moments which is unlikely to even happen tomorrow, brilliant!
Mega slushy parent moment when Sophie came on as one of the Dwarfs, they had microphones which made it easy to hear them. The dance routine and singing that I had not yet seen were really good! We bought a programme with her name in it to go with the ballet show she took part in early last year.
Will she carry on with this? We will have to watch this space and see. By the way, there is a filmed DVD shot on Wednesday, yep, got it on order!!
