Saturday ^_^ – Lots Has Been Done

I have been one busy little bee today! I even had a lie in! Which is shocking stuff for me as I never sleep in. Any who, I have knitted another Wendy Scarf which I started last night and finished this afternoonish;

 

I finished the Baby Heart that I was knitting.

This is my first ever stuffed toy, I’m rather happy with it. Going to thread ribbon through it and make it a bag charm (Mum’s idea). I did want it to be a keyring, I just think it would be far too big for that!

I also started and finished the right glove from the Clarissa pattern. I am doing them in black.

I haven’t sowed it up yet, but you get the idea. ( I did this one without asking for any help too!)

 

Today I have also done some baking! I made my own frosting and everything!

I hope you are all having a wonderful weekend!

I finished my gloves!

Hooray! I finally finished them!

 

I think I look a tad scared in this photo haha! Don’t know why! Took it on my webcam.

I’m pretty chuffed these. I wouldn’t have been able to do them without the help from my mum! She helped quite a bit. Thanks mum! Mum also did a pair of these gloves too. Go check them out over at her knitting blog http://craftyknits.wordpress.com/2011/09/26/fingerless-gloves/ . She knitted hers far more quicker than myself!

 

I’ve started making myself a little pin cushion I shall post that once I have done it 🙂

Current Project- Clarissa Mittens (Pattern out of Lets Knit!)

So mother pop into my room yesterday with the latest Lets Knit magazine to show me these mittens. She said it would be a good idea to make them to learn about increasing and decreasing. So I thought lets cast on! I wanted to do some fingerless gloves for myself and my friend, so this was perfect. 🙂

 

I decided to use King Cole Pricewise Double Knitting in shade 306. I think it is a lovely shade of blue. 4mm needles are needed for this project.

 

 

 

I have only done one glove at the moment, the right hand one. And oh the fun I had reading this pattern. It’s my first time reading a knitting pattern and trying to recreate the instructions to make something. I said to mum that it’s all in a foreign language! I’m glad mum was on hand though to help correct mistakes and help me understand the pattern, the abbreviations and showing me how to do the different stitches (I’m a visual learner).

From this pattern I have learnt how to;

  • Increase stitches
  • Decrease stitches
  • Picot Cast off (That was fun understanding what the pattern meant)
  • Division for a thumb
So it has full filled it’s purpose of what mum suggested it for! All in all I had fun doing this. I just need to do the left hand now! Mum wants a pair, so does my Aunt. My friend also wants a pair! So I better get cracking! I will post some photos of the pairs I have done when I have done them! Here are some photos of what I have done so far. 🙂
