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.
