Hi Everyone! Did you miss me? We have lots of adventures to catch up on next week, but until then let me catch you up on all the things I’ve been knitting!
First there was this hat which I made for Himself in a neat 2×2 rib to go with the scarf I’d made him earlier this year.
Now that the weather has finally turned, he’s wearing it all the time! Would you like to know more?
I have been working my little heart out, slaving away trying to get these finished! Partly so I can move on to new (and therefore more exciting) projects.
The Catkin is somewhere in the middle of the last chart. It really is an ingenious pattern. Though it looks like colour work it really isn’t. It’s just slipped stitches! And I love the texture that was created through the pumpkin section using just knit and purl stitches!
The rows are over 500 stitches each at the moment, so it’s not exactly fast going. Particularly when I realised I’d missed a button hole, and had to un-knit a row to get back to where I needed to fix it.
Would you like to know more?
