Now I told you all how much I love my new knitting needles and this is what they have been making lately:
first some wristwarmers for Mr Locket's birthday inspired by this tutorial
then some for Miss Dotty Locket to match the scarf she is knitting for herself
and then some more for Daisy Locket only these weren't half as much fun to do because they were on squitty thin metal dpns instead of my lovely bamboo ones - they look good though and the wool was really cheap for self-patterning.
No two are identical in length, stitch number or thumb size because I was sort of making it up as I went along (and not really following the very good tutorial) but on the whole I'm very pleased with them!
The other thing I've been making lately is crochet hook rolls inspired by this fab tutorial.
The first was for Charlie P
The second for Thimbleanna
And the third was for Lesley
(Actually the fourth was for Lesley and the third, almost identical one is mine - only mine has all the faults and hers is better!)
They are lovely to make and very, very useful so now I need to make myself a slightly larger one to house all my lovely new bamboo dpns - not just my set from Loop but all these too!!!!
But I will leave you today with the needle case I made for Ally using one of Lynette Anderson's brilliant free block of the month stitcheries.
So a post full of creations and tutorials.
By the way have any of you noticed the fab new item on the side of my blog - my wistlist? It's a really brilliant way to store all your favourite crafty tutorials - there are so many there that I want to make so why do I have to go to work when I have all this sewing and knitting to do? It's so unfair!
