Thinking About My Knitting November 25, 2009

Filed under: Baby knitting,Knitting,Skirts,Yarns — Janet @ 11:56 am

  this is my latest knitting, almost completed – it’s just straight garter stitch, very simple, lovely sock yarn, 2 strands – 1 plain, 1 self-patterning, size 3 mm circular needle, 190 stitches – I think it might be a baby blanket – like the one below, but I’m open to other suggestions.

  baby blanket no. 1

Now there are 2 other projects to finish – the girls’ skirts.

  skirts for 2 grandaughters – I just wonder if these are going to work as skirts – they need to be pressed and some sort of ribbon or elastic inserted at the waist – again it’s 2 strands of sock yarn – they might be too heavy or unwieldy – I’d better hurry up and finish them or the girls might have outgrown them – in which case the “skirts” could be morphed into cushion covers

By the way, the cushion underneath the cat was woven by Dori O’Connell – a wonderful weaver living in Cork.  I understand that she is now doing photography.

    Love the blankets–nice cheery colors! I’d be interested to see what pattern you’re using for your grandaughters’ skirts! Happy Thanksgiving!

      The pattern which set me on my way for the grandaughters’ skirts was purchased in a yarn store in Glastonbury Connecticut. The pattern is written by mac & me in Newbury Mass. Their website is http://www.macandme.net. I didn’t follow the pattern exactly since I knit those skirts in wool and the pattern is written for cotton.
