A Sunday spent driving kids around meant a little bit of time for knitting – it was such a beautiful weekend & we spent most of Saturday in the garden, it certainly felt like spring had sprung!

I found this sock when I was going through the mess of yarn, fibre & WIPs but I have no idea what the pattern is or where it might be.  It was bundled up with some Ann Budd patterns from Knitting Daily but the pattern doesn’t seem to match any of those, any suggestions?

Specs:

Pattern:  Giftie Slouchy Beanie

Yarn – Bendigo Woollen Mills Rustic 12 ply

Needles – 6mm DPM

Gauge – no idea!

Timing: 29 July 2014

Yards –  I had a fair bit left over – enough for another hat!

Modifications – Nil.  Not really slouchy in this case, I think I’d do another repeat before shaping crown if I knit it again.

I knitted this as a last minute gift before realised the the recipient runs pretty hot.  We still gifted it and her mum wears it mostly!  It’s a super quick knit and fun.  Not sure that I’d knit it again as I have so many beanies/hat I want to knit but I would recommend it.

 

 

When I finished the last pair of socks, I also finished off Sorella for my niece.  They got bundled off together & were well received.  I need to order yarn for my other niece for November but haven’t quite got there yet.  Next week.

 

Specs:

Pattern: Sorello by Georgie Hallam

Yarn – Bendigo Woollen Mills Luxury

Needles – 4mm.

Gauge – no idea!

Timing: 29 March 2014 – 29 July 2014

Yards –  no idea.

Modifications – Nil.  I really enjoyed knitting this although towards the end it felt like it was taking for every due to it being the largest size!

I have finished a pair of socks!  These guys have been finished for a little while and they’ve been posted & received.  Disappointingly they are too big for J but she likes them anyway – I’ll actually measure her foot next weekend for a new pair because I don’t think these will give her the right feel for hand knit socks.

The yarn was from Charli’s sock club last year, it’s soft, glossy & was lovely to knit but I started way back in April which makes them a very long knit.  In the past few months I have been working pretty much full-time and going some work slightly outside my scope of practice which made it really challenging but really rewarding.  After the last school holidays life slowed down a tiny bit for a few weeks and I picked up the knitting again.  It’s feels so great.

 

Specs:

Pattern: Can’t remember the name but Charli designed them!

Yarn – Ixchel Bunny Sock Club 

Needles – 2 mm DPN

Gauge – 8 sts/inch (I think)

Timing: Sunday 13 April 2014 – 29 July 2014

Yards –  I had a fair bit left over – maybe enough for booties?

Modifications – Nil.

 

 

Finished dishcloths for February – I am slowly catching up and enjoying the different designs.  It’s good to have some small, easy to finish projects in light of the disheartening baby layette.

Sometimes kicking small goals just keeps you in the game (can you tell it’s footy season again?!).  These are the two January cloths from the Yahoo Groups KAL.
