So this weeks projects were two pretty quick ones - and I love quick projects! Last Friday I found this gorgeous shimmery blue Debbie Bliss Prima on sale in John Lewis. The comments on Revelry complained a lot about knots in the yarn, but luckily I didn’t have any knots in the two and a half skiens I’ve used so far. Over the weekend I turned it in to an urban shells scarf. I loved this...
So its WIP Wednesday again and I have good progress and bad. The Organic Stole I was working on last week needs to be frogged, unfortunately. Although I was happy with it’s width, I’m not going to have enough yarn to make it as long as I’d like, and there’s no more of the same dyelot in the shop because I bought them all. So I’m going to have to frog it and start again and make it a couple...
Year of Projects: The List

It’s Work in Progress Wednesday over on Tami’s Amis. So here’s what I’m currently working on. It’s a stole from Periott, made with Twilleys of Stamford Freedom Sincere Organic Cotton DK. I love the curving shell pattern, and the cotton is a nice change to work with, for the wools I normally use.
I’ve been crocheting now for about three months. I wanted to learn to crochet after I first discovered amigurumi. Amigurumi is the Japanese name for small crochet (or knitted) stuffed animals, typically with oversized heads. These were so adorable I had to learn and be able to make my own! I started with these little amigurumi monsters. It’s a great simple pattern, and very fast to do,...
