Happy New Year!

Posted by Annie Altherr at 11:35 am 0 comments
I like to wish everyone a happy new year, lots of yarn and may your enthusiasm for knitting, crocheting or any other craft be as high as it has always been.
We are the preservers of a tradition, we make things that last and are loved for many years.

This is my last post for 2015.
See you on the other side!

I really challenged myself with this.
I have finished the square bit. I will add some smaller squares onto 2 ends plus a border but that has to wait until I made a different blanket so I know what yarn I have left over.

Anyway, it was rather fun to make.
I used Stylecraft special DK
Fondant, Wisteria, Cloud Blue (3), Apricot, Claret, Burgundy, Pomegranate (2), Lime (2), Aspen, Emperor, Sunshine, Shrimp (2)
(In brackets are the number of balls for those more than 1)

Caught up posting

Posted by Annie Altherr at 3:00 pm 0 comments
Finally caught up with posting all the finished projects.
I really struggle again with my back since the cold weather has returned.
Oh well, at least I can still knit.

I have another hooded jacket I have finished, but I need to get suitable buttons for it.
I haven't decided what, as they should be rather light in weight.

Atm, I am redoing a cardigan for my partner. After we both have lost weight a lot of what I have knitted is too big now. It looks hilarious wearing it.

I filled a few bags for the charity shop. I am sure they need warm clothing.

There will be probably used knitwear on eBid. Jumpers I don't really want to give away, but can't due to the type of yarn unravel.

I'll let you know should this happen.


Take care and happy knitting,
Annie
