I am the owner of a very large box of assorted wools and yarns. And by large, I mean almost 60L… but it’s my mother’s fault really. She’s leaving the country and she let me raid her sewing room! So, using my various sized looms I’m “knitting” my way though it, creating beanies and tube scarves as I go.
Here is the first one I’ve finished out of mum’s wool. The picture quality isn’t great, as my camera is still packed away waiting for me to move already, and I totally forgot to photograph the scarf, but now I’ve packed that away too, and I’ve no hope of finding it until I unpack at the other end, but! Here you go anyway…
The beanies are fully reversible, but with thick yarns like this one, I love that on this side, with this yarn, the stitches look a bit like hearts!
The scarf I made on a smaller loom and as I worked on it, I noticed a pattern formed that didn’t appear on the beanie. I loved that the “randomness” of the colours on the yarn was really only an illusion!
In other crafty news, I’ve signed up to be a part of A Giraffe In A Scarf’s International Craft Swap! It is going to be amazing, so if you’re a crafty/creative/artsy kind of person, I encourage you to head on over and get involved too!!
