Socks for a Newborn

So over the last week or so I have started a couple of new projects. I have on my needles, a baby blanket that is coming along nicely. It’s being made from Moda Vera Pure Wool in a lime green colour. The second project I only started last night out of pure whim and it’s […]

Winter Jumper Update take 1

So my jumper has been on my needles for a couple of days now. I have managed to get two stripes down and about 9 rows into my third stripe. I would be much further along if I hadn’t had to frog about 10 rows….twice.

Clothes here I come

As of last night, I started my very first jumper and I’m making it for myself. Winter can be a bitter affair in my neck of the woods and I need a lovely warm jumper to keep me happy. When I was a teenager, I had a black garter stitch knit jumper that I literally […]

Hats for Cambodia

We had a family lunch yesterday afternoon and I wore my shoulderette that I knitted. My mother in law was impressed and asked me if I knew of any patterns for baby beanies that I could knit up. I said sure but why would you need baby beanies needed? Answer was, she is going on […]

Can’t stop progress!

With a couple of false starts (such as twisting the WIP when joining the round on circular needles, not realizing that make one actually meant make one, not knit one), my bag is coming along quite nicely and quickly! The cables are actually very easy (in this pattern anyway). I don’t have a cable needle […]
