My Knitting Factory28 July 2009
I’m quite pleased with my knitting output this month – items actually finished AND sewn up.
First off the needles earlier in the month, was another one of these bias-ridged hats I’m so fond of. This time in Cleckheatons Vintage Hues.
Then a stocking stitch Baby Surprise Jacket, with hat, for a baby expected in the next couple of weeks.
And an Ishbel shawl – knitted with glorious yarn (the picture doesn’t do it justice). Fleece Artist 100% Merino which knitted like a dream.
I also finished another item, which I forgot to photograph, and which has gone off to England as a birthday present. It hasn’t arrived yet so can’t really talk about that one.
I’m not trying to open a knitting factory here but I also have a cardigan and a jumper on the needles which should both be finished in the next couple of weeks. I do spend nearly two hours a day on public transport so at least I’m using that time productively.
And I MUST sew up two jumpers I’ve knitted for the Winterwarm Project. Don’t forget, everyone, to join me at Rosehill on 23rd August for a bit of knitting and chatting to support this great project. If you’re knitting for this, and won’t be able to come along on the 23rd, just drop me a line and we’ll arrange another time for you to get them to me.
