I am currently working on these socks for the daughter of one of Luke’s previous playgroup teachers.
I am using this amazing Japanese yarn, which is lovely to work with and my friend gave me two skeins. I am hoping it will be enough.
On a separate not, Luke and I got the most amazing parcel from Melissa over at Knitting Sandwich today.
Some scrumptious yarn for me and a very cool personalised slingshot with ‘pom poms’ as Luke put it.
Thanks so much Melissa!!!!
I am making two cardigans for a friends son. I has originally made a version of this when he was first born and she liked it so much she ordered two of the same.
I totally miscalculated the yarn order for my next project, so instead I am in full bootie production mode. These three pairs are waiting to be sewed up.
Excuse the terrible picture, but this us what I am working on. First wrist warmer/fingerless mitten done.
Yet another vest I am working on, this is the fifth last one, can you believe it?
I have to be honest, I can’t wait to get onto some more interesting knitting.
I know, I know I am a day late with my WIP Wednesday. I meant to post it yesterday and I had taken the pictures for it, but I got busy seeing a friend for dinner…so didn’t have the time. I know I mentioned that I was going to be knitting something for myself, well here is a sneak preview. I am working on this cardigan for myself.
I am LOVING the colour. I do love the pattern, but it seems to be taking me ages to finish it. It could also be because I am not getting as much time as I used to for knitting. But, I only have the second front to finish and the two sleeves, so with it being a long weekend here in the UK I might get it done.
I also wanted to show you guys my new knitting basket that I got from a friend who moved back to Germany recently. It’s gorgeous, and her grandfather actually made it. And it means that when I have kids here during the day I can just put everything in my basket and put it high up on our shelf.
I’ve got two things on the go at the moment. They are both very quick items that I love knitting and that I’ve knitted A LOT in the last year…but to be honest I still haven’t blogged about them all…so watch this space.
The first WIPs are these booties, following the Saartjes Bootees pattern, but with my alteration. These are for a boy, hence my colour choices.
The other WIP is a matching beanie, and it’s another much used pattern of mine.
I wasn’t 100% convinced about the colours initially, but now I really like them. I think they’re perfect for Spring and since this baby boy is due beginning of May I think they’ll work perfectly.
I’ve also just finished something for Luke…and had to order some buttons for it from TextileGarden…there are some really pretty ones left over that make me think that I should find something for myself to knit to fit with the buttons. Have you ever done that, knitted around buttons that you had?
And finally, just a quick preview of what I just finished for Luke.
Linking in with Tamis Amis today for WIP Wednesdays.
I have been busy knitting a cardigan for a friend of mine and I am nearly done, just the second sleeve to finish, the collar and the sewing up (my least favourite bit).
I am cheating and showing you a picture of the cardigan for my niece which is actually already finished. But just a snapshot of it.
More to come…
I am taking a quick break from vest knitting and making a cardigan for my niece. I started this morning…so doing quite well.
