Experimental bit here. The patterns are authentic peerie patterns from my lovely wee book 'A hetland Pattern book' by Mary Smith and Maggie Twatt. Fairly pleased with it, but a bit on the chunky ide, would prefer finer, not sure. More research perhaps, will see.
Knitted for a foru Hallowe'en swap :) - enjoyed this, quick and easy knit in a couple of hours. Cotton was bought as a bundle of autumnal coloured cottons on e-bay. I want to do some stuffed pumpkin decorations too I think with the rest of it.
Knitted in Rowan 'Spray', first time I've used it, was an odd ball in a lot I bought from e-bay the other day. 60% wool, 40% acrylic, lovely to knit with and is very warm, beaituful colours. This is destined for my shop in the next couple of days, busy getting it re-jigged - and knitting in between lol
OK, so it's crochet, not knitting lol Still, nice to get back into it all; I busted my elbow a couple of weeks ago with a very hard knock on something, unable to knit or crochet in the meantime, am glad to get back into it now :) This was a lovely project, beautiful wool, glorious colour fun and quick to work up. Not sure who it's for yet lol
....MrsL's knitting blog. "Figheade" is Gaelic for knitting.............I had one a while ago, of a similar name, but amalgamated it with my main blog. However, I think I do enough knitting to justify a separate blog, so here it is ! I'll be putting on spinning too, possibly crocheting, but it will mainly be the knitting - what I'm working on, finished things, knitting for others, my fledgling knitting business, knitting book reviews, good links, bad knitting things (yes, they DO exist LOL). Hopefully you'll enjoy what I'm doing and feel inspired to pick up some needles yourself.
