Among the Sendai ALTs there are several fellow crafters and on almost every Saturday since November-ish Gareth and I have hosted crafternoons: afternoon knitting, crocheting, felting, sewing, cross-stitch and treats! (It also forces us to clean the house regularly, which is very good for us).
We have three scarves being knitted at the moment, toys being made from felt, one blanket being crocheted, and all the countries flags in the football world cup being knitted - it's very exciting business.
Gareth has yet to pick up a crochet hook or knitting needle, so he spends his time playing on the computer and making cups of tea.
I have just finished a little stag toy for a friend in New Zealand, and remember that blanket I started so long ago...
Just big enough for me and some picnic food. I will continue to work on it for a while and hopefully Gareth will be able to fit on there one day.
