knitted moccasins

| April 28, 2013

Well I made a friend for it so now I have a pair. They were stunningly simple to make. I probably should put a slight bits of elastic round the foot hole but it doesn’t need much. If I was to start again I would do garter stich on the band round and moss stitch […]

toe up slipper

| April 21, 2013

Ok. As a first attempt I’m really pleased with this. Its made out of a cotton like string which is sadly a lot more fragile than I realised but its a simple stocking stitch slipper. It might do better with a slight but of elastic around the ankle hole but on the hole its a […]

double knitted bed sock done

| April 20, 2013

Well. As you can see I have completed the sock. The pale pink side is a bit saggy, but it fits. Its not bad for a first effort. I did the cuff, heel and toe in single kniting to give it simplicity but ok so its not an out of house sock. And yes. Now […]

Ok, remember this is wool I was given free and if they turn out ok. I will make some in a better pair of colours, but, attempting a double knit sock. Really it needs a bit of pattern to mesh the colours so its not two completely independent socks but the heel, toe and cuff […]

all ahead arse factor 10

Ok. This is not the best picture but you can see the broken tip. Its lying next to the snapped end. Given the set only came with 5 needles per size. How fecking irritating is this? I have done a whole 3 bloody rounds and a new set of needles is now broken. What a […]

more socks

| April 7, 2013

Now. The smart amongst you will spot I made a sock, the whole one I finished earlier in the week. It has a rolled top which is quite nice and I solved the gaps on the heel turn too. The second doesn’t match the first in any way. I’m aware of this the 3 socks […]
