Finished Objects!



One Skein Wonder is complete! This was made with 2 50g balls of bamboo yarn. I really do love the feel of this yarn, it soooo soft and light, I really don't even realize I have it on. It definately was a quick knit and a cute addition to the warbrobe. There most definately will be more of these in my near knitting future, and possible ones with sleeves as well. I don't have anything this colour in my wardrobe and I must say I really like it. I think I'll be branching out on my colour usage this year as well. I tend to pick up everything in my favourite colour that season and then end up with all one colour...... example PINK.
Here also are the little star sweaters back from being sewn and having been freshly blocked.
This sweaters are sooo darn cute I don't want to give them away. Its a good thing I don't have kids yet because its very tempting to keep them. Alas they will be on their way shortly to England where hopefully two little boys will enough them.


Demo news: The doors are ON! :) You'll have to wait till my next post as I want to get a good picture in the day time of them. Only thing left now to put on is the kick board and decide on a backsplash. I'm super duber pleased with how it all turned out though, Dad rocks and made everything just the way I wanted it, Including my favourite cupboard.

In knitting news : I didn't get much knitting done on the weekend with all the door hanging. I still need to sew up and add the neck to my tank, but it possibly might have to go on the back burner for now. I hate to do that seeing as I'm soooo close to being finished but well Nanny and Granda are coming, they arrive THIS SATURDAY!!!! *GULP* I'm one and a half socks away from finishing nanny's cable socks. HOW DID THAT HAPPEN?? I was doing sooo well. I guess it all came about when I couldn't decide on a heel and decided to set them down for a while until I decided and then..... well then it was too late. I picked them up again tonight and decided there was no time for hummin and haaaing a heel had to be knit. The quickest way I knew how was the plain old heel I usually do so these are going to have to do. Nanny will love them regardless of what the heel looks like. The next bunch of socks will be for myself seeing how I only have one pair so I'll do a little more experimenting with heels then. Until then its knit socks knit!!!!

Awwww, the sweaters are so adorable, I can see why you'd want to keep them :)

Ace job on OSW, it's turned out great and it really suits you! I made one some time ago, but it's not really my style, so I will have to frog it at some point, but I love how yours looks on you. xxx

You had asked about the Wool Peddler's Shawl. I will try to get a photo today from the book it is in and post it on my blog. It is found in "Folk Shawls" by Cheryl Oberle.

The One Skein Wonder looks great! I made one this year, and find it perfect for those times when you want just a bit of an extra layer.

Love, love, love the star sweaters! You did a really nice job.

I tried to comment on this a few days ago but Blooger wouldn't let me - so here goes again!

Your OSW is SO great - it was totally designed for someone with your figure - it's just perfect. And a great color. I bet the bamboo yarn is really great!

And your star sweaters. Looks like you got the chart figured out. So so so sweet. :)
