Completed Knit Report

Learning Fair Isle – First Socks

I promised I’d show you these, from my extensive “Pre-Blogging Archives” in my last post, Fair Isle Space Invaders. They are my “I’m gonna teach myself Fair Isle” project socks from Rowan’s RYC Classic Home book – the Snuggle bed socks. I made these a couple of years ago. I wanted something small that I […]

Keats is Finished!

I finally did it. I completed grafting Keats. For those of you who didn’t witness the full horror of my monumental blunder, see the dissection of Keats here Arrghh, I’ve Broken My Knitting And the more hopeful start Ode to a Merino Yarn. It was gruelling but I think worth it. Lots of piccies for […]

Zipperisation of Brooklyn….

I’m powering through Keats – mentioned here in Ode-to-a-Merino-Yarn – I’m on the last sleeve 🙂 Piccies soon! I finally got fed up with Ben’s Brooklyn Jacket looking imploringly at me for a zip. This is Brooklyn in Rowan Denim of the denim-colour-run-disaster and Where to start with knittie stuff fame. This was only my […]

Dolly bag ….a bag for my dollies?

I was taking a peek at Diva Maggie’s blog and saw she was doing the Rowan International free gift – the Dolly bag. I said, “Ohhh, I’ve done that too” Maggie said, “It’s not on your blog- let us see????” So here is the little beastie… I really enjoyed doing this bag, even the finger […]

Willow jacket – All Buttoned Up

As promised, a piccie of the finished, button clad Willow… I wish I’d made a size larger – it’s OK but a little snug – I imagined it being huge and snuggley and loose. Here’s the buttons…. It was amazingly hard to find a button that matched. I went to John Lewis (where it was […]

Sublime “The Big Frill” Bolero

Knitting progress is slow 🙁 Decorating progress is good 🙂 The paint is dry, the radiator is back on and kicking out much needed heat, furniture and junk back in the room. I am no longer in painty poo clothes and covered head to toe with dust – deep joy. The room looks 100 times […]

Spangle Gloves & Scarf Set Be-Ribboned and Finished

It’s All Done!!! I have finally finished these gloves after lots of frogging and swearing trying to get the second cuff right 🙂 They match the spangle scarf posted about here spangle-scarf-in-woven-cables and here spangle-scarf-done. Since I was a child, I’ve been fascinated by poking my fingers under the twists of cables and wondering how […]

“Buck” the Starbucks Bear

I belong to a knitting circle – The Knaughty Knitters. Two or three times a month on a Sunday, we rattle the doors of Starbucks at opening time, bag the best comfy seats with our knitting, grab a coffee then sit and spend the whole morning knitting, chatting, coffee drinking, “oohing” over each other’s knitting […]

Spangle scarf done!

I was really keen to get my spangle scarf finished so I could wear it if I had to venture out in the forecast storms for today. I watched a stupid amount of TV yesterday and knit frantically to finish it. I have now watched so many episodes of Stargate that the first thiing I […]

Rosita in Jaeger Siena – Lacy top

Here’s another from my back catalog. This is from Jaeger’s JB35 Siena book and is on the front cover…I seem to have a habit of knitting what’s on the front cover … maybe the best garments are chosen for the cover?? I found this to be a very challenging knit – the only lacy thing […]
