Finished object – Mama Weer All Crazee Cowl

So I finished my cowl and I am delighted with it. I love how enormous it is and I love the glorious colours. It will be warm and cosy, not to mention ultra-cheerful, on cold winter days. Although working the knit one, purl one rib for such a big project was rather hard on the… Continue reading Finished object – Mama Weer All Crazee Cowl

Finished object – Cable Front Cardigan

A finished object... and I took advantage of an invitation for a couple of hours at our local park to rope my daughter into taking some modelled shots for me in between games of balloon football with my grandson. I am exceptionally happy with how this project turned out. The fit is just great and… Continue reading Finished object – Cable Front Cardigan

Finished object – Isambard Socks

I had a bit of a knitting frenzy over the weekend and finished my Isambard socks. I have small feet and my socks don't take long to knit if I work on them consistently. I love seeing all the amazing sock patterns that other people knit, but I only like knitting plain ones myself. I… Continue reading Finished object – Isambard Socks

Finished Object – Gaudi Cardigan

It's done! My Gaudi cardigan is completely finished, washed, dry, ready to wear. I am so pleased with it; it fits perfectly, the Rowan Felted Tweed DK makes it warm but lightweight, the colours are just stunning. I feel the buttons provide a final flourish. I went through my button tin as I knew I… Continue reading Finished Object – Gaudi Cardigan

Finished object – Rowan Stockport

I am pretty sure this will be my final finished project in 2018, unless the elves come round and knit a bit of my old gold jumper for me whilst I sleep. It is the pattern "Stockport" designed by Sarah Hatton and was included in the Rowan Knitting and Crochet Magazine Number 46 issued in… Continue reading Finished object – Rowan Stockport

Is this an appropriate time to knit in public?

  The good news is, I have a finished object! The less good news is that I can't show a picture because it's my super-secret Christmas knitting. I'm pleased to have this finished in good time for gifting, and to have it finished just in order not to see it in my work basket any… Continue reading Is this an appropriate time to knit in public?

Finished object – maroon sweater

I have finished my sweater! Although this is a distinctly autumn knit, I am counting it as the summer garment as far as my intentions for the year go (I was aiming to get one garment and three pairs of socks knitted in each of the four "seasons" this year and I'm running way behind).… Continue reading Finished object – maroon sweater

A skein of two halves

So, I start with the end; in this case a finished object. Quite a small one, but one pair of socks completed and ready to wear.  The Colinette Jitterbug has, as usual, knitted up nicely into thick, springy socks.  I love the colourway which I think is like chalk markings on a blackboard.  Or, thus… Continue reading A skein of two halves
