First up, I saw a photo on FB of some covered headphone wires, and couldn't resist having a go. They were really easy to make. I used up some leftover sock yarn and just a basic crochet stitch. A bit naff? well maybe, but I actually love them, and having the thicker wire means they don't tangle up as much.
Next up is this scarf, SWISS CHEESE SCARF. It is a free pattern over on Ravelry. I downloaded it probably a couple of years ago but only just got around to making it.
As you can see it is full of holes, it takes a bit of practise to get the pick up stitches tight, but on the whole it is an easy pattern.
I had no idea how long to make it, the pattern doesn't say. But apparently a scarf should be roughly the same as your height. This meant even though I am small I still had a lot of knitting to do. it did get a bit tedious at the end. I don't always block, but i decided to block this so that the holes would be more circular. It is so long I had to pin it out onto a camping mat.
Another little project from Ravelry, this time A BOBBLE BRACELET, this took no time at all to make.
and soon I was wearing it..
Just because it is super cute, I made this mousie....(pattern on Ravelry)
Finally I saw a couple of people on FB talking about Babette blankets that they were crocheting. Now I have been looking for a blanket pattern for a while. I had intended to knit one, but OMG they take so much yarn and work out ridiculously expensive. So when I saw the BABETTE BLANKET I decided this was the one for me...especially as it takes less than half the yarn.
I have been doing a square a day, keeping it relaxed and unhurried, in amongst all my other projects.
Here are the squares done so far.
The main colours are grey,black,white,stone and airforce blue...keeping it all fairly neutral. i decided to edge all the squares with lime green. this will make joining them neater and will add a little colour throughout without being overpowering.
What woolly things have you been doing?
