Thought I would share my makes for this month, I have been quite busy and have finished up quite a few pieces
The first was a chunky knit waist coat , burda knit pattern All about the blues with 2 strands of stash wool, I struggled with the brioche edging , apparently I can’t chat and knit , I pulled it back several times to correct the edge and then started over when it ended up too long , second time I knitted it up was much more successful and am pleased with the result , check out the shawl pin from genny2828 on eBay.
Next I got the crochet hook out and joined up some pretty crocheted squares I found at a charity shop with remnant wool , the result is pretty colourful and my joins are pretty mountainous but the cat loves it 🐈
Whilst the hook was still out I crocheted a cosy for a friend’s gym bottle , pretty chuffed that it fitted like a glove .
I relined a favourite bag adding an extra internal pocket and a clip for hanging your keys , hate having to rummage round !
I also made a crochet hook caddy as a gift for a friend, sewn using stashed rose print upholstery weight cotton and fastened with a button and fabric covered elastic loop.
And lastly having found some fabulous vintage navy and silver lurex wool, that I had forgotten I had !
I sourced a fab vintage pattern from bookandknits see here on etsy and am now almost halfway up the front , although this is growing a great deal slower than knitting the waistcoat , hope I don’t have to pull this back !
I have really enjoyed finishing up all these projects, and am very pleased to have used up stashed goodies , here’s hoping March is as productive !
What have you been making ?
