FO Appreciation Photo

Sorry for the long break in posts these lasts few weeks. I’ve been very busy knitting, and teaching my craft group.

So, in the meantime, here’s a very sweet picture of gorgeous Sophia wearing the dress I made for her first birthday, I wrote about it here.

And if anyone is interested in ordering this or another item from my shop, you can head over to Etsy.

FO: My Purple Hat

Last weekend I took some time out of my queue knitting and finally knitted myself a hat. I’d picked the yarn ages ago, after I had bought a new purple coat, and I absolutely love the colour.

I love the effect of the pattern, parts of it looks like leaves.

It was actually a really quick knit, I finished it in only a night and some of the next day.

The yarn is, as always from the guys at DROPS, as is the pattern.

And here are some shots of me wearing it, my husband was good enough to take them for me.

Blogtoberfest #30 Swap: What I Sent

Recently a Ravelry friend of mine from Germany, funnily she’s also called Anna, suggested a swap to me. She was in need of some gloves and wanted to knit me a hat and Luke some mittens in return. I decided on this pattern from DROPS.

I wanted something that would be warm, but would also be quite chic and I just loved the look of the cable on the top of the gloves. It looks very, very intricate. And I have to be honest, I LOVED knitting them.

The yarn was DROPS Merino Extra Fine, which is just so amazingly soft and because it is quite thick it knits up really quickly. I think one glove took me about 3 hours or so, which is pretty good for gloves.

I picked the colour as Anna told me she had a purple winter coat and I thought this would probably go quite well with purple.

And don’t they look amazing on? I’m actually going to be knitting a pair for my mum for Christmas. I also hope to knit myself a pair, that is if I get the time to do so. I’ve got a very long queue of projects that I need to finish first.

And so last week I posted off the parcel to Germany. But not before Luke tried to get his hands on the goodies.
