knitting (and a little crochet)

After all, that's what this blog is supposed to be about, isn't it?

Warning: photo heavy post

There have been beanies
Moda Vera Cynthia Blue

Moda Vera Cynthia Forest

three in this colourway; the colours are much darker - rich plum and burgundy
Schoeller and Stahl Skyline Light (hand-dyed) - thanks Leonie
and scarves
two of these

dropped garter stitch

Turbulent Indigo scarf  (Rav link) in donated acrylic "mohair"

DD knitted this one!
Journey Scarf (Rav link) knitted in Moda Vera Cynthia grey

this one is currently on the needles - a sample for my entrelac workshop

and ladies' mitts (pattern modified from Cleckheaton's Handknits to Wrap and Adorn)

and blankets (afghans) approximately 70 inches by 40 inches (175cm by 100cm).

this one is in the finishing process (lots of ends to sew in)

this one is hibernating until I remember to buy a bigger hook

this one is currently on the needles 200 stitches, one row per colour

this one is my "sample" for the garter stitch entrelac workshop I am tutoring next month
 and one toddler's jumper (sweater) which was "homework" to practise Fair Isle technique


  1. Wow, you might not have blogged but you sure have been knitting! I love the entrelac and how can you do garterlac straight on like that? I want to be in your class!!!

  2. Wow! You have been knitting! Love the beanies!

  3. You have been busy! The dye job looks wonderful as do all your very clever knits. I know I find it hard to find the patience to do a few ends, I can't imagine sewing in all the ends on the are a braver woman than I!
