Some of my knitting projects. More to come later… like when I’ve actually finished stuff.
My first sock! I didn’t make a pair because it was too big for me.
Slippers of different kinds (not an unmatching pair – although I can’t find the pair to the red one. I reckon it’s under the bed somewhere)
Scarf of stripiness – this was my first knitting project and I used cheap wool so it’s kinda scratchy but I like the colours.
Licquorice Allsort type hat. I knitted one similar for my sister but her’s had ear flaps and I didn’t get a pic cos she took it away.
Awesome sock. I made a pair of these but could only find one to take a photo of (note my awesome quilt behind it – my friend Tim made it for me).
I made a ponytail hat for JayKay and with the leftover wool made a pigtail hat for myself then with the leftover, leftover wool knitted these fingerless gloves. I think I could have made the hand bit longer. The thumb was a nightmare – knitting 8 stitches on dpn is hell! The first one I did was very laddered but the second one came out okay. I used Heirloom Wool which I really love and must buy more of. It feels awesome and is machine-washable wool which is fantastic.
I got some red wool from Bendigo Woollen Mills to make a short sleeved jumper and I’m still working on my angora cardigan. I had a tragic angora accident though. I’d nearly finished the back when I noticed a mark on it. At first I thought I’d spilt water on it because I was drinking water at the time but, as I mopped it, the tissue turned black! Oh noes! Then I thought my pen leaked but there was no sign of leakage on the pen! I carefully patted the stain, trying to get as much black out of the wool as possible, and ended up with black all over my jeans. I scrubbed the jeans and sprayed them with stain remover because you can treat demin much rougher than you can angora but the stain didn’t come out!!!! I have no idea what to do but I’m going to wear that cardigan stained if I have to because I’ve worked so hard on it and paid so much for the wool.
