There was plenty of the Fjord left so I knitted up this Cabled Hat pattern for my son. First time I did cables, simple ones anyway but I loved it!
Child’s Eart Hat with Tassels. Made with Crystal Palace Puffin in Lilac. This was the first time I knitted in the round with two circular needles. I enjoyed making this project. My son is modelling it here but this now belongs to his big sister.
There was plenty of leftover Puffin so I made my niece a hat. This is Child’s Hat from the Crystal Palace website but with the added pom pom on top.
I love love love Noro Kureyon! This is Booga Bag in Noro Kureyon No. 95 for my daughter. I did hate doing the I-cord because it felt like I knitted ten thousand miles! I made a mistake in the felting though because for some reason it didn’t quite shrink even after three rounds in the wash. She loves it though which is why I made her a mobile phone case with the leftover yarn.
Oh and of course, not to forget my first pair of socks!
Here they are just after I have knitted a few rows for the toes. I’m using the Magic Loop method, which thank God I was able to do after buying the extra long Addi Turbos from Bob and Nancy. The yarn is Shibui Knits in colourway Stone.
This is a more recent photo. I’m just about ready to start on the heels (yikes!!). Since these are my first socks and I learned it all by myself and using the fabulous tutorials available, can someone tell me if the toes look about right? I think they’re a bit too pointy but when try them on my feet they seem to stretch out just fine.
