Knitting (at last)

Finally, here are some photos of Finished Objects - don't faint!

First up is Celestine, a 12 star dodecahedron. Knitted for Sarah's Maths teacher who left at Easter.
Knitted in Regia 4ply sock yarn - it took less than 50g - a very impressive leaving present.

Next, we have Sarah, modelling a pair of Ripple fingerless gloves. Available as a kit see link below:
Designed for Create  in Ilkley and knitted in their fantastic Ba T'at 4ply sock yarn. Aren't the colours gorgeous?

Euan, modelling Capone, a felted hat knitted in Rowan 4ply Scottish Tweed.
Hats do not suit me, but I love them, Euan is wearing this under duress! Bless....

Finishing Things

I am the worst person in the world for finishing thing off! The result is that, sometimes I am overwhelmed by the number of things that I start but not finished. (This includes non knitting related things too) So, this weekend I have dedicated some of my time to finishing off!! My ironing pile is still huge but other things have been sewn up - patterns tidied/sorted - paperwork cleared - emails still to do! and the list goes on.

A couple of weeks ago I actually attended a Workshop as a participant - not a Tutor. It was Dye Your Own Yarn and was held at the delightful http://www.createwithwool/ in Ilkley, Yorkshire.
Here is the first picture of one of four skiens of yarn I dyed myself! Isn't it gorgeous?

Spring is on it's way

Here are a few photos of flowers which have started to appear in my new garden! Aren't they lovely - I do not know all their names but they have made me smile all this week.
Knitting post to follow!
