On My Needles
I finally finished knitting my daughter’s scarf!
I’m hoping that it will be softer after washing it by hand. (Not in the washing machine! Like last time. Oops.)
When it’s wet, I will block it.
For those of you who have joined me for the first time, the knit stitch is Crest of the Wave.
There are still ends to sew in, which shouldn’t take too long.
I have decided on my next knitting project and will talk more about that next week 🙂
Crafty Tools – Making Your Everyday Better
Now October is here; you may be thinking about knitting a sweater for the colder months.
Whenever I think of knitted sweaters, I am reminded of the time my Mum, and I made one together.
A memory that makes me giggle, as our tensions were completely different!
The sleeve she made was at least 2 inches longer than the one I did 🙂
So, if you’ve got a few projects in mind… Knitpicks have 10% off when buying 10 or more balls of selected wool at the moment.
