Knitting project #5 – 2012

Now this probably has been the most difficult stitch wise for me. I haven’t knitted in about 20 years, but now I want to get back to the level I once was!! I’m hoping to move onto cable soon too (sad I know, but play along).

Anyway, I had this pattern and wool from a knitting magazine that I had bought before Christmas. As I started to get some confidence back with my knitting, I decided to try it.

Amazingly I knitted it up in one evening!! Surprised even myself.

I left the sewing up until the next day and this was the final product…….

Not bad eh?

So good I thought I would model it ( those of a nervous disposition should look away now)

LOL I don’t have Beanie hair………………………..so anyone that does is welcome to the hat!!!

On to the next one.

Knitting project #3 – 2012

I had made a scarf for my Mum as one of her pressies from the boys. My brother was suitably impressed and commented he wouldn’t mind a ‘proper’ knitted scarf!

So voila……………………….my 3rd project of the year!

I had picked up some wool in the sales after Christmas and this was perfect for his scarf. Not too technical but great practice!

Not modelled by my brother……..but my OH!

VERDICT:  he likes it! (my brother that is! )

Now onto the next project…………………………

Knitting project #2- 2012

Ok this may be cheating a little but I still knitted them!!

A smaller version of my 1st project, as requested by my youngest son- in his favourite colour!!!

Yes he honestly requested these............It confirms he is actually mad!

Laughingly my eldest has now requested a pair, in a more muted colour of course. I think I could restart a fashion!!!

However, he will have to wait as I am half way through project #3.

 

Knitting project #1- 2012

This year one of my New Year’s resolutions was to learn new skills. I can knit but really basic stuff so I wanted to get back to it this year and obviously improve. I would also like to learn how to crochet ( something I have never done). I feel like i’m turning into an old lady already!!!

However, I started and here is my first knitting project of 2012………….a pair of wrist warmers!!!!! ( stop laughing, I can hear you).

 

Remember I was thinking............practical!!

Ok, so they are not the prettiest of things but I do suffer horrendously from the cold so they are actually practical- they are a necessity to keep my hands warm whilst I’m on the laptop!! PRIORITIES LADIES.

Anyway, my youngest was so impressed ( bless him) he wanted a smaller pair in red!!!! So that will be my next project!

Have you decided to learn something new? Go on be brave and share………………
