Also did this scarf knitted from a Paton's Velveteen and Ostritch kit. Don't mock - it was gift and I knitted it last night, finished it off this morning and will have it at TASDA as quick as I can to add to the raffle prizes.
Here's a closeup of the tassels. They remind me of cranberry coloured lamb's tails. They are made by casting on then immediately casting off and they get a cute little twist in them. The colour is a rosier colour than the photo. It got a lot of attention at the morning tea table today, so it should be a welcome prize for someone.
OK, so what else?
SnB with the usual supsects, Tupperware Party for Margit's first every demonstration at Mon's place. Finally got listing sewing patterns and stuff for sale on e-Bay so will be busy posting stuff off come Sunday. I have only scratched the surface, but it's a start.
By the time you read this another ex-poncho hat will be finished and quite soon another matinee jacket. I'm even making headway on JEC's cabled tunic (due last October, but she didn't know about it so she'll get it this October as a lovely surprise) . It's no longer a chore to knit this, I'm enjoying it! I can't tell you how relieved I am to have recovered my joie de tricot!
Mum delivered two matinee jackets last week to a very enthusiatic response from her physiotherapist whose wife is expecting their first child - most gratifying. Note to self, two more babies are due quite soon - knit more baby stuff.
Oh, I finished knitting up the test fabric from Lynne Johnson's workshop. I darned in all those hundreds of ends as little rosettes to add to the texture, leaving a few still flowing free. Need to find a pinky/mushroomy fabric to line it and make a little clutch bag. Again, night photography does not bring out the colour very well.
