Well I suppose there are far worse things to be addicted to, I love it, the colours, how it's appearance changes from when it arrives in a skein, to what it looks like balled up and then finally knitted or crocheted. I cannot draw or paint and I love that I have finally found something creative that enables me to make beautiful things.
But and there is always a but isn't there? As with most other area of my life *thinks briefly about the spare room littered with boxes half stuffed with out grown baby clothes* I start many a project, I get off the ground at a furious rate and then, normally about half way through, another pretty turns my head and off I go at a total tangent. So I thought I would share some of the things I have started this year and later we will have a little update to see what actually got finished. Some of the photos were taken a few weeks ago during what may turn out to be summer!
Firstly this lovely scarf http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/feather-and-fan-scarf-10 in a Luscious Little Somethings yarn club wool and silk blend called Selkie, This one has grown a bit since the pic was taken :)
Next up Evie Pants Longies pattern in Knittybots hand dyed organic merino colourway Night Light.
Now finished and modeled by the beautiful Small Boy T,
Next up a Shawl http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/cloudburst-shawl in Noro in various shades which is lovely and bright but also matt.
Up next the Neat Ripple from the brilliant attic24 http://attic24.typepad.com/weblog/neat-ripple-pattern.html you will find so many lovely things here that you may get lost and never return. Anyway this is a blanket for a very lovely lady who has just had a baby and it is what I really need to work on before the teeny little chap grows up and leaves home, It is supposed to represent the seaside and I have given it the original title of Seaside Ripple...It is made from a 100% cotton yarn.
Since taking the photos above I have started and finished (get me) these for another fairly new little girl person also Evie Pants and Knittybots this time in Riley's Rainbow.
I also Low water immersion hand dyed these in the microwave with Dylon
And started one of these http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/benedick--beatrice-vest pics when the Seaside Ripple is finished. I also have many granny squares that will one day be a Leap Year Blanket but that as they say is a story for another day........
