I really did think that we could get through this house renovation without much disruption. Yes, I am a glass half full (well, three quarters full!) type person. Subsequently, I'm now in a state! Part of this resulted in my misplacing the camera. Needless to say, I've finally found it!
I've been busy today, sewing on buttons on my latest batch of fingerless mittens - 60, to be precise. I'm off to Rose St. Artists' Market tomorrow, hopefully the rain will hold off for us.
So, I thought I would just show you some of the work of the past two weeks.
These are the articles I finished for last weeks Ivanhoe Makers Market.
1. Blue fingerless mittens made from the beautiful wool roving I bought on my weekend away at Tarndwarncoort.
2. New design of fingerless mittens, very simple but laced up down the back of the hand. Just using the yo,k2tog at the beginning of each row and using the resulting 'loop' to lace up with a twisted cord.
These both sold last week!
3. A funky simple beany using three different yarns together.
4. A black and white, feather and fan scarf, knitted lengthwise. This is the first of the upmarket footy scarves. Know a Collingwood fan out there?
These are the mittens I've just finished.
1. Two more mittens using the last of the Tarndwarncoort rovings. All that handspinning is just wonderful for my sanity.
2. The purple mittens use the pattern 'Stars and Stripes'. The grey mittens use the pattern 'Twist and turn'. Both these patterns are from the No.5 Vogue Stitchonary on Lace, that I just recently received. More on my purches in another post!
3. The hat is using some hand-dyed 12 ply from Morris and Sons. I managed to make their sale and picked up a few more cream wool packets. There's a little feather and fan pattern and the rim is stocking stitch which rolls up. I've got a hat like this and it's fun using the natural curl of stocking stitch.
All I have to do now is put the price tags on and I'm off tomorrow to market!
