Thank you so much you all for following my knitting adventure. I have tried a bit of cables - not ready to write a pattern yet, although I have MAYBE an idea how to do it. Please let me know would you like to knit it? The most I like is the YARN - It is everything I could dream of: a perfect colour and the way it knits up - just gorgeous!!! I have a bit left 40g and I am thinking to add it to some shawl in the future so I will have some matching set. Share with me your finished objects on Instagram by using #knittingILove - I really want to see them :) Don't forget we have annual knit a hat KAL on rav - check it out too.
"Every friend needs a pair of knitted socks, especially the one that doesn't knit" - say me.
I met a friend this year, a knitter friend, that taught me that the act of a gift is the thing we should cherish the most not a gift itself. I don't know do you but I can speak only for myself that I feel kind of overwhelmed when it comes to get an idea for presents. I don't know what to give, people these days have everything. Therefore, I believe that new era of made things will count the most. The most expensive thing in the whole life and the one that we should not forget and should be most valuable of for all of us is TIME. If you ARE a knitter you know how hard it is to choose a pattern you want to knit as it takes time, which we don't have that much. I think that's obvious. Therefore, the second thing is to choose to who we knit for: ourselves or others, and if for others then for who?!
Once I opened a KnitCrate box for December 2016 I just had to knit with this yarn and as the pattern was this lovely Shaggy Beanie by Heather Walpole & Pineapple Expressions I just had to knit one of them. The colours of yarns that I received told me everything. Check KnitCrate Boxes and don't forget to use code KIL20 for your 20% off - thank you KnitCrate. It was so much fun to knit it as you could definitely make it in a day or two.
My FRIST EVER Christmas sock. I received this beautiful yarn from Amber from The Yarn Hoarder Podcast. I am speechless thank you. I think I could pull this off and wear these socks during the Christmas Day but also on St Patricks day too - green, white, orange - an Irish flag. First time I did an Afterthought Heel, cut the yarn in the middle to insert the heel, used Christmas colour way and used stripe yarn for the whole socks. WOW!. I give 3 out of 5 points to 9inch HiyaHiya needles at the moment. I need to knit at least 3 or 4 pairs to decide do I like to knit with them or not.
