stitching, quilting, fabric, projects
The weather is not so good here in Kent today. I was rather hoping to show you around the garden a bit but it’s too cold and gloomy. So instead I’ll share with you a few small knitting projects I’ve completed using up left over wool. I don’t knit a lot, I dabble, trying out small projects and experimenting.
This “Vanessa” cable headband designed by Nancy Ricci for Ravelry used up some Madelaine Tosh light and Austermann Merino 105 knitted together. I love the pattern and will probably buy the suggested weight yarn to make another proper one sometime in the future.
This childs hat, made up as I went along, finished up some wool I had hand dyed with Koolaid. Ice blue raspberry and Grape were used separately in a dye bath to get a range of colours from pale turquoise through denim, lavender and grape.
I did get out into the garden a few days ago when the sun was shining and took these.
It’s only mid March, I know but I’m chomping at the bit to get out there!
