So. The shawl is now on its last couple of rows and I’ve started an in the round jumper. Its my own pattern so god help me if it doesn’t fit. It will be a cabled jumper nothing too flash or exceiting. Pretty much I have a plan to cable up the front with a […]

still growing

| June 27, 2013

Well. That’s kind of the last row by the pattern but I didn’t like the way it finished before. I’m not sure what best to do all I know is I didn’t like the edging and finishing section of the last. Now. Part of me says make it a lot of holes but at least […]

double knitting

| June 25, 2013

So. Here’s the pattern and my produce. Yes. There is a mistake on the white side the bottom right curl and on the black bottom left curl I got a stitch wrong. Bite me. The cast on was a crap one but sufficient for this test. I was not pleased with how the pattern shows […]

another shawl

| June 16, 2013

So. Oddly I am choosing to make another shawl. Only this one is with cobweb weight wool. Heck I’ve sewen with thicker thread! I am probably using far too small a needle by most standards but I’m liking how its turning out. Next up I think is a double knitted blanket. Problem is I’m a […]

My birthday pressie to me

blue socks

| June 15, 2013

My first finished continentally knitted socks. Made with the aid of a stitch holder for the cables courteous of my late ex father in law from whom I have been kindly given his crafty stuff.

YAY back on the air!

| June 14, 2013

For those who had noticed, my website fell off the face of the earth for a small period yesterday or so, this was due to some technical dull issues I wont bore you with but, could have been avoided, and easily solved with access to the right logs.. which I didnt have. I have a […]
