I have been stitching much more recently. But it is all a secret at the moment since what I am working on is a gift for a friend. We are doing a trade. She is knitting me a hat, scarf and mittens, and I am stitching her something in return. I can’t wait to finish it up and mail it to her. I am sure I will finish it this week. Just bought more floss today since I was running out of the colour I am using.
Last night I was getting tired of stitching so I decided to try something tiny and very very cute! Something I had been wanting to try for quite some time! And here is the result!
Pattern: Cheers by Cheryl Niamath Freebie!
Needles: 3,5 sock needles
Yarn: Unspun Lopi wool 1 ply
Adorable isn’t it? It only took me about 1-2 hours or so. I am sooooo making more of these! I can see them as Christmas ornaments, like these here! I can see these on a line in my window, hung up with tiny little washing clamps made of wood. Cute!! Maybe I will knit them before Christmas 2010 when my knitting is a little more advanced.
Knit Picks knitting set in sizes 6mm 5mm and 4mm. I am going to slowly start collecting the needles, also the double pointed ones. I am lusting after this. Well, if I am honest I am lusting after every single needle on that site. Hah!
Well, time to finish making dinner and feed the animals (children) of the house. Until next time!
