Completed Knit Report
It started 10 years ago, in 2009, in a yarn buying frenzy in the John Lewis Sale. I joyfully skipped to the checkout with 20 balls of delicious black Rowan RYC Silk Wool DK in my clutches. “That will make Ben a super jumper”, I thought….. Eight years later, in 2017, my constant waving of […]
I’ve just finished this! 😀 I cast on in June 2018 but it has been a background project – this isn’t a six month knit 🙂 Cute, Soft & Fluffy. Great colour. Easy to knit Stocking Stitch.Yarn and pattern in stash… When I needed a some plain stocking stitch, as a break from other, more […]
I finished the Glen Brioche Scarf before I left Malaysia 😀 Here’s the evidence, carelessly draped in a tree on the beach, looking rather like an exotic snake… I was holding my breath all the way though the final chart – this is why – I had about 2 metres of each colour left over […]
I made Alabaster a year ago and never showed you – bad Susan!
Alabaster is a lovely green cable jumper I bought the stuff for at Ally Pally way back in 2015.
EEk! I’ve not used my work Charity day!😲 We are strongly encouraged to use our one day a year for charity work – it’s a great idea 😍 Hmmm – what can I do? The obvious answer was the little hats for the Innocent Smoothies “The Big Knit” campaign for Age UK. I’ve blogged these […]
Here’s a really cute one I knit in under 2 weeks, over the Christmas break last year (2017). I can’t believe I didn’t blog this at the time! It came out very well – a really cute pattern 😍 The lovely Ben was due to meet his 6 month nephew, Noah, for the first time […]
I now have a backlog of “Finished Objects”to share with you but here’s a quick little one , fresh off the needles 🙂 My Flying Monkey Socks… I love Cookie A’s sock patterns but I had never made Monkey – beloved by several members of the Guilty Knitters. …and I had a flight to Miami […]
I have been forced out of my blogging lethargy to show you a fabulous sock yarn blanket I have just finished 🙂 It’s made entirely from the left over bits and bobs I had in stash from pairs of socks, a couple of 4 ply shawls and some soft toy creations (and I still have […]
I made this!…And it’s not Kidsilk Haze!! How can this be? When I saw this image in a mailshot from the online knitting store, Deramores, I instantly fell in love. I wear that shape of shawl as a scarf and around my shoulders quite a lot – I wanted to make it. But, as someone […]
Even with Pixie biting my yarn and needles, I have managed to finish my last WIP! New year’s resolution completed!! (OK, last WIP if you don’t count the Autumn Rose Sweater I abandoned in 2013 because it was coming up too small…Those pesky Guilty Knitters won’t let me forget that one cos they want to […]
