It was so chilly last week that I started knitting a scalf. I have had the yarn for ages, it's called Click by Sirdar and it's great for chunky scarves. I knitted quite a few last year as Christmas presents.
Well, I had used the two balls I had and then realised it wasn't long enough so it's on hold for now.
I have been making these little pin cushions using milk bottle tops as bases and one using a beer bottle cap from Alla's collection.
I took my friend Alla one of the Morsbags I have been making and came away with some bootle caps and the idea for mini pin cushions.
The weather has been warmer the last few days and because I was in the mood for a knit I thought I'd do something with this cotton, I don't know what it is called but I think it's Sirdar again.
So, I made a coaster in basket weave and then decided to make one in moss stitch.
Can anyone tell me why this happens?
Is it because my tension is too tight when I cast on? if you know a solution please let me know, I would be very greatful.
I'm not the only knitter in my family, my mum and sister both knit, a lot better then me it must be said, and look what my mum knitted for me....................
Isn't it great, I'll find out from her what the pattern and yarn is.
And just for good measure...........
Some kitten love...... ahh................
