Lifestyle Toe Up Socks

So I finished the newborn sock I started two days ago. Instead of following the pattern (as usual) I deviated and used the No Muss No Fuss short row heel from the Lifestyle Toe Up Socks pattern that I had used previously. Well this time it was successful. Yay me. So instead of making a […]

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 […]

Finally!

Finally there has been some movement in the camp. That’s the camp of the new Winter Jumper. The back piece has finally been cast on and I have about 2 stripes completed. In the middle of that, I am also working on some Granny squares to make up a blanket for our little girl’s bed […]

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 […]

Blocked and wrapped

So the baby blanket for Campbell Jon has been washed, blocked and ready to be sent off today. I am so very happy with how it turned out. The lace pattern is easy to remember after doing a few repeats. There were a few times that I had to frog a couple of lines due […]

Better late than never…

Oh so busy… I have so many idea’s of things I want to try but seriously do not have the time to do any of it. We have been absolutely flat out with our little munchkin who is a whopping 15 months old now. One of my first cousin’s have just welcomed a gorgeous baby […]

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 […]

Cable handbag

The next knitting project has been decided. I am going to attempt to teach myself how to knit cables by knitting this gorgeous looking bag. It is a Drops pattern which is free and can be found here. Here’s to the next few weeks of knitting!
