Curly Wirly Mad...

Sharon wanted another row on her Curly Wirly scarf, so I brought it back to add some. Then I got the flu, so left off it for a while. Finally managed to finish it and, yep forgot to photograph it again!!

Since finishing the scarf I have also completed
  • a pair of blue booties trimmed in red for the bootie store
  • Anyother Curly Wirly scarf like i did for Lizi - photos definately to follow

Thinking of the white fluffy stuff I have - sure would make a pretty Curly Wirly.....am I obsessed yet, how many do you have to knit/crochet to offically become an addict?

Dominique’s first spinning

Dominique is really getting the hang of the drop spindle now. At one of the Coventry Knit-Wit sessions we did spinning instead of knitting, which went down a storm.

Here is the first sample of Jacobs’s white and brown plyed together and knitted up - Rowan chunky eat your heart out!

Pink curly wurly

Sharon @ work commisioned a baby pink curly wurly! - pictures to follow as my camera is out of batteries.

This one was crocheted using Patons Fairytale Cuddle DK. - baby pink, but hhas a pearl strand and the colour has pink & peach tones - I think that this would be good for a cardigan for Lily too!

  1. Loose chain for as long as my arms would reah outstretched.
  2. dc into each ch, 3 in the end one and dc along the back and 3 dc into the first 0ne, st.
  3. 2 tr into each dc, working in a round & ss into the first.
  4. 2 dtr (yarn round hook twice) into each tr & ss into the first one.

This took 100g of Patons Fairytale Cuddle DK, but Sharon thinks that it may need another row round, probably of trebles to give extra depth, so it will probably take nearly 150g once finished.
