I do so love knitting and today, thanks to the wonderful blog of Waldorf Mama, I have found the greatest new knitting patterns. And they even come from my neck of the woods! I am talking about Georgie Hallam. I am wanting to start on the Milo vest for all three boys straight away!
I have finished the elf hat for Cuddlepie.
It is amazing how long the instructions 'tie a loose overhand knot' took to perfect. I must have made a hundred knots (or it felt like it!) before I was happy with this particular knot.
I was very excited a few days ago to win a grab bag of yarn from a gorgeous eBay seller. I would love nearly all her yarn to come and live at my house!
This is what I received:
A beautiful bamboo/merino mix from EasyKnits.
A very colourful merino from the Indie Dyer called Autumn. I think a scarf/wrap of some kind for this.
And my favourite, an alpaca/silk mix from Jenny Cook in the UK. I could touch this one forever - it is SO soft!
Sometimes yarns are just so beautiful in the skeins that I don't want to commit them to any particular project. I just like to touch and look at them as is. I was thinking maybe a cardigan/jacket of some sort in cream with this used as a frilly border of some sort. I will have to search through my Rowan magazines for something.
And this is the beginning of the ugly yarn being knitted into pants for Cuddlepie. It is definitely growing on me!
