So I’m sorry I disappeared off the grid for a month. Lily has learnt to pull herself up from a sitting to a standing position. I need eyes in the back of my head at the moment!
My spare time has been taken up with knitting, so I thought I would give you some update on what my needles have been up to.
- Chunky scarf x 2
This started life as a panel for a blanket. Now its chunky, soft and a really warm scarf. I ended up making 2 of these because a friend wanted one 🙂 So that was a fun gift to make.
2. Chunky Hat
With the remaining yarn I dug out a 20mm Crochet hook a made myself a matching hat. Also warm and squishy! Really starting to fall in love with crochet, there is something beautiful about the one hook and only having one stitch to worry about.
3. Flutterby James C Brett Hooded blanket.
With those really cute teddy bear ears, I fell in love with this pattern and the yarn within about 30 seconds. Lily also fell in love with it to, keeping hold of it as we went around Hobbycraft. This yarn is so soft and fluffy and it feels really nice.
4. Christmas Elves – Let’s Knit Issue October
The free gift with this month of Let’s Knit was a kit to knit a set of Christmas elves. Super cute and I’m going to knit the 2 for Lily. It’s the first time for ages I’ve knitted a toy and I’m really enjoying stitching all the pieces together!
Now need to knit the hat and the arms. Then need to stitch on the face on 🙂
Will keep you all updated 🙂
Lots of love and happy knitting!!
