Wristbands for nephews

My son and nephews asked

for Man United wristbands
instead of scarves or hats.
I couldn't find a pattern
anywhere so I made it up.
This first one was more of an experiment than anything else but it worked out well.

DB Baby Cashmerino Arglye Vest

A litte detail.

All done, blocking worked a treat Kay Anne, now just to add buttons.

For my Godson

I knitted this my little Godson, he's a big 16 month old (the same size as my 2 year old who is a little fairy child), so I knitted it in the biggest size. I had bought the yarn originally to knit Sherwood but when I got DB Baby Cashmerino book 2 I knew I would be using it for this.

Kay Anne advised me to block it before finishing etc so that the 2 colour work will look as good as is possible :)

Socks that Rock Club 2007

DH has very nicely agreed to give me this as my Christmas present, so long as he gets a pair of socks, I hope he doesn't regret this wish though.

Blog rolling

Well I finally got my head around this and have posted a list of all the blogs that I read at least once a week. They are in alphabetical order rather than in the order of frequency they are read. I hope anyone reading the list finds a new site they enjoy as much as I do :)

New Stash.........

I succumbed to Posh Yarns new Cashmere/silk yarn Eva. It is so soft with a lovely sheen. I can't wait to knit with it but have to wait until my Christmas knits are done.
I'll post a picture when I've finished knitting with it. :)

Silkwood Contessa Scarf

I knitted this scarf in Silkwood Contessa, a silky soft thick thin wool like Colinette's Point 5. I use Colinette's Poppy pattern from Artyfacts. Another Christmas present.

Socks that rock yarn # Rocktober

I finally succumbed to sending for some of this most coveted yarn. I wanted to see if it was worth all the adulation I read in other blogs. It is very soft for 100%wool and the colours are fabulous. I'm such a sucker for colour. Now to settle down after my christmas knits and actually try socks. I'm a sock virgin unfortunately but I know a group of excellant knitters who will egg me on and provide and needed help, thank the lord :)

more scarves

This scarf is knitted in plain black Debbie Bliss Superchunky. It's like butter soft. I will hate giving these up but they are presents :)

This scarf is also knitted in DB cashmerino but superchunky this time. The pattern is from Out of Town and I chose different colours than in the book.

Scarves knitted for Christmas

One of several scarves knitted as Christmas presents. This one is knitted in 3 shades of Debbie Bliss Cashmerino Aran. It is very long and soft.

Desert Flower Clapotis

I finally finished this. It took almost 4 skeins of Lion and Lamb. It is so so soft.
