June Xmas Ornie


The June Ornament for our stitch along with our internet group.

The design is called Merry and Bright by Little By Little Design Co.

I am trying to use smaller pieces of aida cloth for these ornaments. I am not sure how I will finish this one, but the hearts on the edges will not be seen.

2 Drop Stitch Scarves

Ohh...these are fun to make, and once you have the pattern worked out, you can do it from memory! This pattern is by Christine

This one is made from Alpaca Wool from Fibreworks. Colourway: Happy Wanderer, worked on 4mm needles

This one is made from 2 different colour balls of Noro Kureyon, worked on 4.5mm needles. I worked on 2 rows, then swapped to the second colour for the next 2 rows and so on.

Retro Rib Socks

Here is proof that sometimes you can get your knitting needles on the plane! (A good idea to go and ask at the security gates and show them your knitting before you check your bags in, and if they won't allow it, you can put it in your main luggage!)
Thankfully with our long delay in the Canary Islands (see Our Time in Berlin for that post), my knitting was allowed, and I managed to get this much of the second sock completed...it was a long delay!!!


I love this pattern! It comes from Favorite Socks by Interweave Press
Retro Rib Socks by Evelyn A. Clark

I love this wool! The wool is from Fyberspates, Alpaca Sock wool, it is so unbelievably soft to wear!!!
knitted on 2.5mm needles, 1 skein.

A Hat fit for a Boyfriend


A Hat Fit for a Boyfriend by Stephanie Nicole
This is the name of the pattern....please do not think that I am knitting this hat for a boyfriend, cause I don't have one..but if George C, or Harrison F come knocking on my door, I might change my mind and have to knit them a hat!

My photo does not do this pattern any justice. It is a brilliant hat pattern, and I will knit this again sometime soon.

I had it totally finished in 2 days!

Fibreworks 8ply merino 1 skein of "Black Range Blues"

Knitted with 5.0 mm circular needles (40cm long), and double pointed at the top end

Quilt # 10

Another Tumbler.....


I played with colour on EQ5 with this one, to try and create opposites. I sewed the entire top, and when I look at it now, I feel like I have made a large mistake by sewing 2 quarters of it the wrong way around. I guess I am feeling this way because the last few quilts I have made with these tumbler blocks was to colour it from the inside to the outer....

I like it! :) I just can't decide which way I want it to hang??

Quilt # 8 & # 9

I am counting this quilt as 2, because it is double sided!
The front


The back.


I still have a stack of tumbler blocks....I think they are multiplying in the box when I am not looking!

rainbow jumper

This jumper has been a long time in the making.

This is the second time I have knitted it. The first was in September, over the next few months I lost a few dress sizes, and it was too big.

So, I frogged the entire thing and started again. It had been sitting in the basket beside the couch, just waiting for the ribbon to be sewn on.

Finally last night I stitched the ribbon on.


The Pattern is
Waterlily Rainbow Jumper from the UK magazine, Knit Today, Issue 6
the yarn is Colinette Tagliatelli
Size 7 and 8mm needles
