Sorry for the lack of show notes for the last episode of the podcast, if I’m honest I was more concerned with just getting an episode up for you guys to see and not to let my channel linger without any new uploads! I have been making a fair bit recently so lets get into it!
F.O.s – Finished Objects:
I started knitting Morgan’s dad and aran jumper and managed to finish knitting the back panel. The pattern I am using is Patons C 7987 Family Cable Sweater (I think that is what its called). The wool I am using is some that Grandma Penny gave to me from a previous jumper she tried to knit for his dad.
My mum has commissioned me some dish/ face cloths and I have completed one. I used King Cole Bid Value Recycled Cotton Aran (80% cotton, 20% other fibre) and the pattern I made was: https://www.knitpicks.com/patterns/Ricochet_Lace_Dishcloth__D55584220.html
The first sleeve of The Sweatshirt Sweater (by Purl Soho) for Morgan is now complete! Although I wont be knitting the rest until I have finished his dad’s jumper. The wool I used for that was Wendy Aran With Wool in Milky Way (75% acrylic, 25%wool).
Finally the 60s stripey Dovetail Scarf (by Purl Soho) is off my needles!! The wool used was James.C. Brett Twinkle Fashion DK (100% acrylic). This is going to be a gift for the bike fundraising raffle. I will definitely not be using this wool again because it is very scratchy and not very nice.
Also once again I have made another Classic Cuffed hat from (you guessed it!) Purl Soho. I think I may have to frog the last few decrease rounds to make it a little flatter on the crown of the head. I used Stylecraft Life Chunky in Oatmeal (25% wool, 75%acrylic).
W.I.Ps – Works in Progress:
I have started the cuff of my second Funky Gryffindor sock, another pair for Morgan, these will just be plain vanilla and he says that the first one fits him perfectly so that’s great! I am using a mysterious hand dyed wool from his mum’s stash and Sunbeam St.Ives 4ply for the heels and toes.
I have a test knit on the needles as well! The pattern is by @mrslobelia on instagram and it is her The Journey Begins cowl perfect for beginner knitters because all it is is knits and purls. I am using another mysterious wool from my stash, a light dusty pink acrylic, hopefully I have enough to finish the project with.
With the same wool as the first dish cloth, I had started a second pattern (here’s the link): https://www.knitpicks.com/patterns/Tree_Hunting_Dishcloth__D55851220.html . Unfortunately I didn’t keep track on which row I was on so I will now have to frog it and start the same pattern over again. I don’t mind seeing as I had only done half a pattern repeat.
The singles I span with 100% merino fibre from fibre hut in Chocolate and Amber have finally been plied! I have about three mini skeins worth of singles left to ply together and then I will begin to soak all of the mini skeins.
I hope you enjoy this weeks episode and the more chatty nature of my videos now!
See you soon,
