Woah, I can’t believe I haven’t been here since January! So far, it has been a year of great change. I moved house, (back in May), and started a new job and had to deal with a nasty bout of tendonitis and I guess that’s what’s put a kink in the makings department. Now that’s gone though, it’s back to the usual click, clack of the knitting needles and the noiseless delights of the crochet hook.
First up is a little purse I made to send up birthday money to a lovely gal up in Scotland.
Next up was the October knit-a-long from Craftsy, a lovely autumn cowl, called Wishbone Rib. It was a delight to knit, a very simple pattern that doesn’t look simple. I signed up for the workshop and so got the yarn from them too. Details are on the site.
The next thing on the list was for youngest edition to the family due in about 6 weeks. We already know he’s a boy and his name is picked out, so this is a jumper and matching hat for little Andrew Aled.
Well, I say Baby Jesus because this doll has played the part at many a Nativity Play, but the very pale skin and blue eyes….. what can I say? The pattern comes from ‘Get Knitted’ in Brislington, Bristol – their website is here. The yarn is Opal sock yarn Sweet and Spicy in shade 8617 and I am very impressed with it. The jumper and hat came from just ONE ball of 100grms and there was still a little bit left and of course, it looks lovely. One ball costs £7.99 and the buttons were 30p for all six.
I will leave you now to go and pick up the needles to get started on some more woolly projects. Have a great day!
