I know it’s been a while, and as I’ve decided to try and keep a track of my projects through Ravelry, I’m also going to try and keep my blog updated with my projects and how they are going… I reaslied recently that my flatmate is completely disinterested in my craft unless it means cute presents for her…
I had a rather long list of people to make presents for at the last minute for Christmas. I found that by the time I got Christmas shopping that my budget was far too stretched to be able to buy anything for people, I had to raid my stash to make something for everybody.
Williams’ family blanket
I was invited to dinner with my friend’s family, as I wasn’t allowed to spend Christmas alone. I was working boxing day, so I couldn’t go home to my own parents. I made a blanket for the family as one gigantic present.
Lil Sis Infinity Scarf
I made an armknitted infinity scarf, with this wool from Hobbycraft. I had the wool in a deep purple and white. The original design popped up on my facebook news feed, so I raided youtube and came up with this:
Gem’s Tassle Scarf & Pebble’s Scarf
I found a pretty design for a Chenille stole. I didn’t have any Chenille in my stash, so picked up the prettiest yarn that I had in my stash. I used this yarn, once again from Hobby craft, once in this varigated yarn, and again in coral. The coral had the tassles from the end of the stole pattern, while the varigated was designed to be a bit of a plainer scarf.
I found this pattern a long time ago and wanted someone to make it for. Baby Imogen is a recent addition to my flatmates extended family, and I thought that a present for that little piece of family would be a cute blanket.
I have recently discovered that Imogen has a sibling on the way, and they’re keeping the gender secret, so at somepoint in 2016 I have another to make in another gender neutral colour.
This was the picture that was taken midway through the project. I was making the blanket in another of the varigated WI yarns in Hobbycraft. This one was a set of blues and lilac.
