adventures in knitting
I have had a bit of a knitting winter, which has been a good thing. I have learnt my lesson (ie never start anything to big (I get bored too easily). So toys and a variety of scarves have been on the menu. The red scarf at the top is called the seven circles (from assemblage), a very easy knit on circular needles. I have used a silk?merino wool which is beautiful to knit with.
The other darker item is a wrap (mohair wool), looks black until it is sunlight where the rainbow colours show up. This is from cocoa knits, who have a number of interesting patterns. If I ever decide to do a top then I will use one of her patterns, really like some of them (esp this and this).
