Knitted stars for a special occasion. Used the Stjärna pattern by Karolina Eckerdal.
Some time ago, I knitted a scarf for my mum. It was knitted with love, but honestly, the materials weren’t great, and there was no skill or pattern to speak of. Still, I would see her wearing it from time to time, and feel such joy that she was wearing something I made, me! But then I’d feel a flush of embarrassment because really, she deserved much better.
By now I have gotten a lot more skilful, so I made her a much improved scarf, with a pattern by Kristen Hanley Cardozo. Mum made me so many lovely jumpers when I was a kid, and even a fancy shawl for my communion, but I didn’t appreciate them at the time half as much as she deserved! This is my way to say thanks.
This is the prettiest part of my stash. All the odds and ends off various balls of yarn are quarantined here, in a woolly rainbow, until I can find a suitable purpose for them.
The bedrooms in this house have beautiful brass door knobs that are too slippery to operate when you’ve just applied a blob of hand-cream. To solve this problem, I have created…the door knob cozy. They provide a little bit of extra friction for turning the door knob with freshly moisturised hands.
Here’s something I finished a little while ago! It’s a wine bottle cozy, for gifting that extra special bottle of vino! Not too happy with how the picture turned out, but very happy with how the cozy itself turned out. Inspired by this pattern on Ravelry by Tara Mercer.
A pink stripey scarf, very similar to this purple one. There is a blue one yet to come too, which is about half way finished now.
This is a scarf I finally finished a few days ago. It’ll be a present for one of my friends, I have someone in mind for it already. I’m planning to make a blue one and a pink one in the same way. Actually the pink version is already started. I was looking through my stash of wool and discovered that, I have too many scraps laying around, and it’s time to put them to good use.
It’s such a dull lightless day here today, I had a lot of difficulty trying to show the colours of this thing! I fiddled around with the saturation for these photographs, but there is no substitute for a bit of proper sunshine.
