So I thought it would be nice to keep bit of a chronological record of my completed knitted makes. For me I just really enjoy seeing the progress of my knitting skills – which is part of the reason I started this blog in the first place!
Feb: Knitted Cowl Scarf
This was my first knit from my “art of knitting” subscription. It is still in use now, but starting to fall apart… so i really should knit another warm one.
Knitted Egg Hat
(2015) The Art of Knitting Project. This was knitted as an exercise to practice decreasing stitches. I think it looks really funky in the glitter wool! But I have no idea when I’m ever going to use it…. So it has been donated to a charity shop.
July: knitted bunnies
This was a pretty simple knit – garter stitch squares sewn into squares.
July: That black knitted scarf
This was a work in progress for about 3 years. But it is still in use and super warm!
March: Knitted Hat
(2015) The Art of Knitting Project. This pattern and wool was a freebie with my subscription. I messed up the pattern a little. But I’m still pretty chuffed that it actually looks like a hat!
July: Wrist warmers
Made these for my Grandad, with a matching scarf.
August: Rainbow Cowl
Inspired by the need for a distraction from horrible dental pain. Scarf hasn’t had much use though.
September: Brown Hat
This was a birthday gift for a friend.
Feb: Baby booties
So big that my baby (born Jan 2017) won’t fit these until she’s at least 3!
July: Camo Blanket
One of my more used makes. Used almost daily. Ideal for camping on the sofa with baby and Netflix.
November: Ribbed Socks
Little large. But very warm.
December: Baby Tank Top
Worn twice. Now to small. Lesson: never make baby clothes in the smallest size!
December: Blue Hat
Does get worn quiet a bit. I love the colour, but the freebie yarn from Art of Knitting isn’t something I’ve fallen in love with.
Feb: Baby Blanket
A Pattern by Laura Strutt in Love Knitting for Baby Dec 2016 issue.
April: Patchwork Blanket
This was a learning project from the art of knitting magazine. My knowledge of knitting has increased so much ovee the last few years because of this project! This patchwork blanket will be used in the lounge I think!
April: Crochet Alien
I was inspired to give crochet another go by the octopus for a premmie facebook group. As I result I’ve finally been able to make something!
April: knitted Octopus
This my first knitted offering for the octo for a premmie charity UK.
May: knitted Premmi blanket
May: Crochet dog
May: Crochet Alien
June: Harry Potter Scrap Blanket
An attempt to use up some of those tiny balls of yarn you don’t know what to do with…
June: Baby Hat – A donate project for the knitting group
July: Infinity Scarf
Donated for a charity raffle at work.
August: Mitten Baby Socks
A quick knit that is a really easy DPN starter
September: Chunky Hat and Scarf
This was my first Chunky Crochet Make. Definitely wanting in on some more crochet chunky makes 🙂
Chunky Knit. One for me and one for a friend.
October: Hooded baby blanket
Flutterby yarn from James C Brett. Lovely yarn to work with and sooo soft!!!!
October: A Shawl for My Grandmother
Made using two strands of DK yarn from 2 balls of yarn to have a chunky weight. Total balls used: 4. Knitted up on 10mm circular needle
October: Mini Christmas Elf-on-the-Shelf (boy)
A free kit that came with the October 2017 Lets Knit Magazine.
October: Finished the Starwars Scarf – Finally added a back
After deciding a few months ago that I would sew some fabric on the back, then leaving that in a cupboard for months, my brain finally figured out a solution. Crochet.
December: Christmas Jumper
Pattern: Love Knitting reindeer jumper – with edits. Knitted in Snowflake DK Yarn.
December 2017: Lily Hat and Scarf
