Finished Projects

Despite my lack of blogging and photos, I have been busy knitting and indeed crocheting recently.

A little baby jumper, knitted in lovely soft cotton/soya mix, by Sirdar. This is really lovely yarn, but it sometimes splits while knitting. The pattern I designed myself, and am really pleased with it. I may publish it one day.

My scarf in lovely soft Alpaca yarn, which I bought a couple of years ago at the Knitting and Stitching show. I tried a couple of patterns which were not successful, and finally settled on one free from Interweave Knitting magazine.



And finally a lovely blanket which I crocheted from various sock yarns with a 3.5mm crochet hook. This is really great, and my daughter is delighted with it.

The photos don't do it justice though, and I had difficulty with the lighting in the bedroom. I got the idea from one I saw on a blog www.fluffyknitterdeb.blogspot.com.

I'm off on my holidays this evening, so thought I would post these before I go. As this is my 99th post, I hope to mark my 100th with perhaps a draw!!! from all you bloggers who make a comment on this or my next posting. If you don't see your comment published in the next 2 weeks, worry not as I may not get to the internet while I'm away, and my comments have to be moderated first.

The FO's look great. I love the crochet blanket! Did you know that I took a Learn to Crochet class, because I loved the look of that blanket? Congratulations on reaching that important milestone in the blogsphere. Keep it up.

Beautiful FOs.

And now I know what to do with all my leftover sock yarn! Well, actually, what I'm going to ask The Limey to do, as he's the crocheter in the household.
