I finally cast on for a new knitting project, yay! It’s nothing flash or fancy, just a basic ribbed scarf. I was faffing around on Ravelry, through my knitting books and magazines trying to decide on a pattern. I had my usual thought pattern of “I can’t knit that! Too complex for me!”. In the end I just picked some yarn and decided to do a basic scarf to get myself back in the habit of knitting. I’m using some Moda Vera Harmony yarn (pink & green) and some of my vintage knitting needles. Pink, of course.
Still have the flu and am now up to the coughing stage. Felt terrible this morning but feel a bit brighter after taking some nurofen. Hence the casting on and blogging about it. I found some photos of my older finished knitted projects and thought I’d post a few here.
‘Sister Socks’ a pattern from Yarn Magazine, Issue 3, June 2006.
Knitted cakes from Jean Greenhowe’s ‘Jiffy Knits‘.
Another Jean Greenhowe pattern, this from her ‘Toy Collection‘ booklet.
oh I love your needles, I have the same pair. lol, they are lovely to knit with too. You are just so talented, I love your blog, I love what you make, I am drooling here at the computer over your pink and green yarn for your new scarf. As for your socks, holy cow!! They are awesome! All those colour changes – scary!!
Hehe snap on the matching knitting needles! :)
Thanks so much for your lovely compliment! I never feel very talented, so it is lovely to hear that. I must admit though, the yarn I used for the socks is all in one – self-patterning. So I didn’t need to change colours – just knit! I lurve knitting socks, so fun.
oh wow, awesome socks. Do you use circular needles?? I am still trying to finish a beanie with a set of needles, and just so awkward. lol.
