A few pickies to peruse!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I started this dress when grand daughter number 1 was on the way. (She's now almost 6 1/2).
This is a close up of one of the Ice Cream Sundae socks.
The lovely Katt dyed the yarn and I just couldn't resist getting it an knitting it up.
This is the completed pair of Ice Cream Sundae socks.
They have knit up beautifully if I say so myself.
I knit this little jumper for something to do in between other projects that I had on the go.
It was such a quick little jumper to knit up.
I used a bit of red pure wool that I had sitting in my stash so I was being verrrrrrrrrrrrrrrry economical on the pocket and I also used a verrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrry old pattern.
This little hoodie was knit from Bella Baby Parade using a pattern from the BSODL Knitting Essentials book.
I found a lot of faults with the pattern as well as with the yarn.
The pattern said that the 1st size only used 2 balls of yarn but when finished I had about 2 metres of the 4th ball of yarn left. (That's twice the amout of yarn stated in the pattern).
The yarn has joins all the way through it which is verrrrrrrrrrrrrrrry annoying.
One ball of yarn even had a heap of ends (about 10cm long) shoved into the centre of the ball.
I have a hoodie on the go for miss almost 5 in the same yarn and am having the same problems with the yarn amount used and also joins all the way through the yarn so I will NEVER, NEVER, NEVER buy it again.
I am also going to get in touch with BSODL to let them know what is happening with the yarn as well as it's a rip off for them to sell yarn that when a lot of it is just unusable.
Oh well that's my rant for the day.
There will be more pickies of finished knitting at a later date.
Until next time keep on knitting.
