The Knitter's Last Stand

Finished projects

This set has been finished for quite a while.

The yarn used was Lion Brand Magic Stripes.

It is a different way of using this sock yarn and I think it will look lovely on a little boy.

This outfit is to be sold at a later date.

This little outfit was sooooooooooooooo quick to knit.

It is knit from Moda Vera Spell which we used to be able to buy at Spotlight but Spotlight being the way they are we can no longer get it.

These socks are knit from one of the Opal Petticoat range.

I can't remember at the moment where I found the pattern but if I think of where I will add it in later.

I knit this jumper for miss 6 as she asked me to make it in these colours for her.

She has been wearing one that I made for her in pink and white for the past 2 years and just loves it. She almost lives in it.

The yarn is acrylic and I think that I bought this at Spotlight as well.

The pattern is from a Debbie Bliss book called "Great knits for kids".

These socks look a dream.

They were knit from yarn that my great friend Katt dyed.

Don't they look fantastic?

The pattern is the one that I mostly use from my trusty Patonyle accessories knitting book.

I have a few more finished items to show off but the pickies are still in the camera so you will have to wait for them.

I promise that you won't have to wait so long until the next instalment of pickies.

Until next time keep on knitting.


Bye Bye Whiskers

It is with sadness that we have lost Whiskers.
He was hit by a car on Saturday night and our lovable larykin didn't survive.
Whiskers was about a year old (we don't know exactly how old as he adopted us about six months ago) and he was a true free spirit.
