I was sitting with a cuppa round the fire last night when I decided to get the needles out again and make some more "wristies"
I've had so much wear out of these grey ones
so in a couple of hours I'd knitted these
I just cast on 40 stitches, using size 4 needles, and knit 50 rows then cast off, fold in half and stitch up leaving a hole for your thumb, so easy for beginners, and all you need are scraps of wool
I made these in cream and brown to go with a lovely aran cardigan that my sister gave me for christmas
but I didn't have anything to go with the cardigan so I sneaked off to York for a couple of hours and there just waiting for me in CK was this gorgeous dress, well I couldn't not buy it could I??
I "borrowed"one of Mr Lucey's wooden coat hangers to hang it on, I just need to cover it in a pretty fabric
maybe "stanley" will be just right!!
I've also got this cute little purse to make for Alexa's pennies it was free in Mollie Makes, problem is I'm dead messy with the glue gun going everywhere but where it should,
and last on the list is the heart wreath I started at the classes in December
the beads are so tiny you need a good light to see them and the needle is so fine
this one is half done but I'll have them all finished for next December, I hope!
