The Weekend Wrap-ette



I’ve been off kicking up my heels with excellent, crafty, weekending companions (thanks girls), involving dangerously good caprioska, 3ply wool, mismatched knitting needles and the slowest crocheted hexagonal output you’re ever likely to witness over a 48 hour timeframe. Those kokeshi dolls above represent marked restraint, because OH MY GIDDY AUNT, after a simultaneous introduction to the world that is Kyo, I could quite happily purchase an entire nook of that particularly vast warehouse, if not cut to the chase and set up residence.

There were other purchasings earmarked for gifting: this fabric to be morphed into a scarf for a friend and generally bedazzled by and bewondered at:



And serendipitous, funky chopsticks for the, (upon arrival home), still pyjama-ed, popcorn-eating, Karate Kid-watching ankebiters. I’m talking original Karate Kid here; in all it’s 80s hairdo, shoulder-padded glory. My clan had their utensils at the ready in time for Mr Miyagi’s failed chopsticked, fly-catching scene:



Beginner’s luck...

Wasn't it great fun!

Back at it tonight and 1 completed hex.

I blame those caprioska's for my hooking demise!

So glad the smalls loved the choppys x

Michelle said...

Sounds like a perfect weekend. My smalls watched the original Karate Kid recently too, but no fly catching here.

Christie said...

He, he, he, you all laughed at my 3 ply but I may very well complete my project before kate does!

What a great weekend- when's the next one?

Looks like a perfect week-end away. I think kirst's bartending skills are becoming legendary.

Bellgirl said...

Lovely dolls! The fly doesn't look too appetising though.

Kirsty said...

I think the enery expended moaning & groaning had something to do with it.

Glad the small liked the choppies. Mine were similarly impressed.

Sandrine said...

Maybe I need those sticks too so I can improve my asian eating out skills! :)Happy Monday x

Sounds like a great weekend! How good is KYO?!! I try my best to avoid visits there, I get lost for hours, time disappears....must get the Karate Kid for my boys, I think they'd love the original.

KYO. Blimey. I was scared to look at the website...

I love/d the orginal Karate Kid, it was on TV a couple of weeks ago and Chef and I got very excited ( jeez how times change when a good movie from the 80's is the highlight of your week, when it use to be an all night party and some such ... *sigh* ).......... am i getting old?
