See pirates, it IS a knitting club!
Soon have one cosy foot Schmunkee
I am charging along the foot bit of a sock.
I love knitting socks now TP. I'm doing a pair that have come out in stripes for H.
I use that self patterning wool that comes out looking a bit Fair Isle-ish pattern. This pair is blues and purples but I got some which is greens/grey/orange today for the next pair.
Everyone is having socks in with their Christmas present from me this year
Should be a Kwilter. You're the real knitting guru experty type person.
I just get things to turn out looking how they should just by luck and knowing when to improvise.
I did finish my slippers, Kwilts, some time ago actually but have only just got around to photographing them.
Slippers mark 2
How are the projects coming along then?
Small - I'm struggling to see where you put your foot into the cute pirate-y kitten
I'm just getting back on track with a cross stitch Afghan for a friend's child. About 3/4 of the way there, G, Q, L, W and Y left to stitch.
On the list is a quilt to finish, curtains and cushions for the spare room and I'm trying to plan the next birth sampler. I'm one child behind on my cousin's production rate - I've told her to slow down, so I can keep up! I'm thinking something along the lines of some flower faries - she's called Grace.
Oops... that didn't go quite right did it!?
Wow Helen, you're going to be busy by the sounds of it. Flower fairies sounds lovely. I loved looking at the illustrations in those books when I was little.
I'm planning on knitting jumpers for my nieces Christmas presents. I only have 2 but I'd better start soon as I'm not the world's quickest knitter.
Nice slippers, Small
I have a week to finish Jonny Depp in cross stitch
They look more like slippers!
Beebs - you have to post a picture of that - completely intrigued!
Thank you Beebs
How do you concentrate...?
He's Captain Jack, HL, its hard,small
I started him as a surprise for my eldest daughter for her 15th birthday, she has just turned 20
I had my reasons for the ling gaps
She and her bf are coming to live with us in a week,she's been in Sweden with his family pretty much since the beginning of the year
My Christmas stocking practice run has stalled somewhat. I'm part way down the foot and if the toe is as hard as the heel I may stop there. It might not work that well as a stocking mind you...
Actually I think there's a flaw in the pattern - I'm sure it reverses at some point so you'd be continuing with the wrong side of stocking stitch on the outside. And despite the heel pattern looking as though I should end up with the same number of stitches I started with I managed to acquire a few more along the way.
Maybe I'll commission a couple from the MiL
