From last Sunday when I had the pale pink Milo vest completed I’ve been on a slight roll of finishing off wip’s…I know shocking isn’t it ! I can hardly believe I wrote that sentence myself !
First to be finished was the cushion cover I was designing…oh I can’t tell you how much I love this !! I LOVE LOVE LOVE IT !!
Ok yes now you want to see it of course,
When I started this cushion I have a picture in my head of what I wanted the front and back to look like and what you see here is exactly what I had in my head !! I can’t believe looking at it that I got the image in my head translated into yarn in front of me !
The front was made up of small granny squares which I joined with wrong sides together so I’d have the raised rows and the back I made in two parts to give me an envelope fold type opening. I then sewed on buttons and gave the edge some button holes. I used Stylecraft Special in a dk weight and a 4mm hook.
It is now in pride of place in my crafting corner and it is extremely comfy and cosy behind my back !
Second onto the FO list were Alans Stormy Sky socks. I took these out Tuesday night to do a few rows on them and got so engrossed that they were finished and off the needles that night. I find this happens me a lot, once I get the time to pick a project up I’ll keep going at it until done, I really just need time !
Again I’m sure you want to see them,
We have been having such a spell of sunny weather that I was able to photograph these in the garden the other morning at 9am.
I used Opal’s Fairies and Elves yarn and 2.5mm dpn’s, my favourite way to knit socks I must admit.
On Wednesday I had started a square I was playing around with for a bag for Elizabeth’s birthday and that is so very near complete. It is in crochet and is again out of my head but it should be ready all going well for showing on Sunday’s post so do check back to see that.
