Something new…

Hello there!

Well I’ve been commissioned to create something I haven’t made before – a messy bun hat!

Here’s a picture of the nearly finished piece.

I was given a photo and asked if I could make it, and I said “Sure! I can try!” It’s not exactly the same as the photo I was shown, but I’m liking how it’s turning out!

Hopefully the client will like it too! ๐Ÿ˜‰ย  I’m making it with super soft Caron yarn.

Happy knitting!

It’s arrived…

My yarn has arrived from PaintBox Yarn.ย  Yay! ๐Ÿ˜€

I chose to work with their DK yarn for the pattern I’m creating for them.ย  It’s SO soft and so easy to work with.

Here’s a little sneak peek.

One down…

Hello everyone.

I wanted to share with you one of the blankets I made for a Christmas gift.

I’m just thrilled with how it turned out and you can be sure I’ll be making one for myself! ๐Ÿ˜€

As most knitters know, when you use the stockinette stitch without some sort of border, your edges will curl.ย  So when I was designing this blanket, I purposely didn’t add a border so the curled edges would create a soft, ripply edge on the blanket.

So if you want to make one too, here’s what you’ll need to know!

I used 5 balls of Caron Simply Soft yarn in Autumn Red and US size 8 circular needles (36″),

Cast on 200 stitches.

Row 1 – 20: Knit 20, Purl 20 across the row

Row 21 – 40: Purl 20, Knit 20 across the row

Repeat above pattern until you have come to the end of the 5 balls

Cast off on row 40.

The finished size is 43″w X 55″ l.

Well off to try and get my second blanket done in time for Christmas. Wish me luck! LOL!

Happy knitting!

Did you know???

Hey everyone!

I’m absolutely thrilled to share with you that I’ve been chosen to design a pattern for Paintbox Yarns!

 

I don’t have any sneak peeks yet, as I’m still waiting on my yarn to arrive, but if you want to check out their yarns, click here!

I’m so excited!ย  ๐Ÿ˜€

 

My finished “slocks”…

Hello everyone.

So I finished my first pair of “slocks”! LOL!

Here they are:

I’m going to play around a bit and try to make them a bitย  more colourful; maybe add a different coloured trim and toe or perhaps make stripes.ย  I’m also going to knit 2 at one time so they will end up being the exact same length.

It’s a super easy pattern.ย  Click here to see it.

Well, off to finish my Christmas presents. Hopefully I won’t get distracted anymore! ๐Ÿ˜‰

Happy knitting!
