I managed to finish off the main stripes on Tuesday night. That just left weaving in the ends!!
If you read my WIP shame post, you’ll know that I’ve been using this part-finished blanket as a blanket for a while now. I had therefore weaved in MOST of the ends already, I just had about half the blanket to go…. *groans*
But I finally managed to get it finished and managed to get the border finished on Thursday night…
So yay, its now officially a blanket!
I was brave and after checking that the Stylecraft DK that I’d used to make it was washable, I put it through the washer with a bit of fabric softer. Its so much softer now and smells lovely!
Not one of my “Graveyard WIPS” but still WIPs I’ve been working on for a month or so….I moved onto doing a bit more on my linen stitch scarf…
I got a bit of help from Freddie the Field Mouse last week
As its a bit of a mindless knit, I was able to get some more done on this on Friday and Saturday night. Its not quite long enough to be used as a scarf yet…but it is getting long!
I started off my “Stripes gone Crazy” cardigan at the beginning of August but found it a bit complicated for simple knitting, it needed concentration and in August, I wasn’t feeling it…!
In August, I got this far…
This weekend I’ve been working hard to get some more completed. I’m almost to the start of the stripe section. Its worked in 4ply yarn, which means it takes ages to get there, I’m so excited to get it finished though!!
It doesn’t look like a lot still but this is how far I’ve got this weekend!
and several episodes of “Tin Star”…
Has anyone else been watching this…with Tim Roth?
I’ve been watching it this weekend, wasn’t at all what I expected but over the last two days I’ve managed to binge-watch several episodes….!
Unfortunately, I’ve got through the whole series now…so need something else to watch whilst I’m knitting!
