A Borrower?



I have almost finished the bathmat. However, Barry wants to take a photo of me knitting it because, much to his amusement he thought I looked like a borrower because of the enormous knitting needles! So I'll probably finish it this evening.

If you haven't heard of The Borrowers' then the video clip will tell all but I have to say that the BBC Television series was the best! It all started with this book....

Going to try out some shirring on my sewing machine now.....hope it works and doesn't make me go GGggrrrrrrr!

I loved that book!!! Did not really watch the movie because it messed with my childhood remembrances. I would probably growl, too...that's like somebody calling me "cute"...doesn't work for me.

I am 'GGrrrrring' because my machine won't do shirring!

Barry said...

Phew! thought it was me!

I knitted a rug once using broom handles and about 30 balls of yarn at a time! Great stashbusting exercise!

You and Barry really have a great sense of humour, growling or not! Can’t wait to see the photo.

I love the Borrowers as well- loved the series as a kid and introdued my kids to them. The movie was terrible, but I agree the BBC series was wonderful. Most BBC adaptations of books are :)
