Hawaiian Jaywalker Socks

26 02 2008

I have finished my Jaywalker socks, they are knitted on 2.75mm Quills in Lorna’s Laces Hawaii colourway. I loved this yarn, it is beautiful to knit with and I really like the effect it has created with the pattern. I have enjoyed making these socks and would definitely use the pattern again, it is very easily memorised and takes the monotony out of plain socks.


Finished Gretel

Here is my finished Gretel Beret, I ended up knitting the slouchy version as I tried it on as I was knitting and decided I wanted some more slouch! I must have a big head LOL. It was a lovely knit which I really enjoyed, I will definately knit more 😀

Sorry there are no modelled shots but my husband is away and I found it hard taking them in the mirror. I don’t think my 2 year olds photography skills would be up to scratch ;D

Gretel Beret

2 02 2008

I have started knitting myself a Gretel beret: http://ysolda.com/shop/index.php?main_p … ducts_id=3

I am knitting it in Malabrigo worsted in Holly Hock colourway, I have to say that this is the nicest yarn I have ever knit with, it is like butter, so soft and I love the varigated colour. This is only my second attempt at cables so i’m a bit slow :S It is a lovely clear pattern though and I am really enjoying knitting it 😀

I really don’t suit hats so this is a big test as to whether I will wear it or not. It may have to find another home if it doesn’t look right!
