My photo

I knit, I sew, I run, I look after children and hamsters, I take truly terrible pictures, I cook, I complain.  Sometimes all at the same time.

FO Friday

Finally.  It is finished, done, bordered and the ends are sewn in and snipped off, and it is finally finished.  The birthday is in a fortnight's time, and I have made her present beforehand, an amazing feat.

For those who are interested: every single bit of DK/light worsted in the stash, often hand-dyed (by Lucy and I), often remnants from other projects.  Quite a lot of small balls were used up making this, so I couldn't make it again even if I wanted to.  I love it, Lucy loves it.  I used a 4mm metal hook, and a 4mm wooden hook, when I lost the metal one.  I hope she'll love it for years to come.

The list:

Alphabet Blanket for Noah - done
Granny's a Square Afghan - done
Elephant blanket (one stripe half made)
Peacock Mittens
Owl Blanket
Hexipuff Quilt (nearly 120 puffs made, how terribly exciting)
Paper Dolls 
Peerie Flooers
Ringo and Elwood mittens 

I may end up lengthening the list at this rate.


  1. I love the blanket, it looks amazing, and what great stash busting!

  2. Oh what a great blanket, definitely a great stash buster!! I love these the best because they are so unique!
