I have at last discovered to add buttons – of the virtual kind, with links, to my blog. I have to say a BIG thank you to Karla for her e-mail as it helped enormously. In gratitude I have added her button to my links so all can visited her blog. I am feeling really pleased with myself as two weeks ago would never imagine I would even attempt html and was so envious of people with lovely brightly coloured buttons on their blog. I have a link to my sponsor site if anyone is feeling generous and wishes to sponsor me for the Race for Life.
I have plenty of knitting pics to show both finished and wip.
This is a lovely wrap that eventually has buttons on it so has the look of a poncho about it. It is made in Patons Coast and Patons Washed Haze Aran. The Coast doesn’t have the best texture when in a ball but knits up to a lovely heavy drape. It ia just garter stitch interspersed with drop stitch (the washed haze aran bit). I also have a pattern for a matching bag. Below is a (slightly blurry) close of the stitch detail.
A while ago I ordered some Cherry Tree Hill Supersock from Get Knitted and chose this a my free pattern. It is called Fan The Flames and is designed by Sue Morgan. I have use Debbie Bliss Baby Cashmerino Shade 503. (Yes I am having a green phase at the moment) It was supposed to be one of my stashalong projects but I only had two ball of the yarn and 1/3rd through realised would need another – but as the purchase was to complete the project its not so bad. This is just the fancy end section there is then a length of garter stitch and the same pattern the other end. I think if I make another I will do the main scarf section in stocking stitch but will finish this as it is.
Of course as I have a pair of socks otn, these are trainer socks using Opal Rainforest yarn in flamingo. They are great as use up less than 50g of yarn. I have already made a pair for my stepsister, complete with matching knitted gift bag and want to finish mine by July 23rd so I can wear then for Race for Life – being pink and all. I was going to show you them along with my gorgeous Tua Cha wristwarmers in Debbie Bliss Maya but blogger is playing up and won’t seem to upload my pics. Will go have a tantrum (i.e. shout and boyf to make it work who will look at me perplexed and I will do it myself).
