Here is a new square…
Coming along so slowly!
Here’s square number three for my baby blanket.
I used this yarn originally to knit a scarf for my mum many years ago. I knit a lot of the scarf while a family member was in hospital. I have a few mixed feelings about using this but it is nice. The colour suits the squares made so far and with the ones I have left. The circle pattern is quite effective.
Here’s a few pictures of some things I have been working on so far this year.
I’ve not knitted anywhere near as much as I’ve been exploring the wonderful world of Zentangle and coupled with a bit of recurring eye strain I haven’t done as much as last year. I have done more than this but can’t find photos at the moment!
I’ve got two WIP blankets. One for me and the other a baby blanket for a friend…
Here’s hoping I get it finished before November!
A quick knitting update as it has been a fairly long time since my last post.
I have actually been knitting! But I’ve not been writing about it. Just going to pop a few pictures of things I’ve made in last year or so. First up here’s a few snaps of a baby blanket I made last year. It was for an all in one baby blanket for a friend. I’m happy with the way it turned out and thankfully sewing in the ends wasn’t too bad.
There’s a pair of recovery slippers I made to help me post op. A bright pink purse I made for my mum for Christmas (I made a second one this year for a friend at work), a grey purse for which I made my first ever hand sewn lining!
There’s a couple of pairs of handwarmers and a cardigan for which I can’t seem to find a finished picture of.
Looking through all the lovely knitting blogs has made me feel a guilty for not posting. I shall try to update more often without bombarding you all!
Here it is, finally finished. Mr J’s cable knit scarf! Ready for the wintery weather we will no doubt be enjoying very soon!
Well I’ve managed to get back into knitting a few pieces over the last few weeks.
I’ve finished a plain baby hat and socks for a work colleague. Also started a lovely scarf for my husband. Its the first ‘big’ thing I’ve knitted for him but pleased so far. The wool is super soft and really nice to knit with. Had a minor scare last night when I twisted my cable and had to take the whole thing off needle *shudder*
Thankfully it is back on needle now and looking grand.
Apologies for the long gap between posts. In truth I’ve not knitted very much lately, it has been an epic journey to finish a few pieces so I guess this will be a round up blog entry.
In April I designed my first pattern, a gift for a friend – a simple passport holder. I was really pleased with how it turned out, I’ll try and update with photos as soon as I can.
I was also continuing to make Peppa pig from an online pattern someone told me about during a work course! I’ve put this on hold as I severely lack the motivation to continue. Perhaps I will puck it up again soon.
I made a simple basketweave bookmark for a friend’s birthday in April as well. Not sure if that one is on ravelry (can’t log in at the moment).
Finally, I made my first jumper following the Moloko pattern in Let’s knit magazine. Really easy to follow and quick to knit if you don’t wait two months to buy a new ball of wool so you can finish it.
I’m currently making a few baby knits for a work colleague then I plan on tackling one if the gorgeous blankets in Debbie Abrahams book ‘Blankets and Throws to Knit’.
Hope your projects are going well!
