Knit 1 purl 1 drop 1

 


What a week, first I make a real rookie error, whilst I was sewing on the front edges on to a cardigan when I realised that I'd completely forgotten to sew the shoulder seams 😕so then had to sew the seams and adjust the tops of the sleeves.  



On my next knit I cast on the wrong amount and after 25 rows I noticed 😄 so I had to undo it all and start again.


I'm hoping this will be the last of these lapses and I can get on knitting with out any mishaps.

Edwards new scarf

 


My grandson asked for a new scarf over Christmas, so I let him pick the colours he wanted, so the scarf will be in pear green & baby pink stripes with a little fox face on each end.


Next we looked on the internet for a fox face chart and found one he liked the best.





So here it is, I posted it down to him and I hid a few chocolate coins as a surprise and he insisted on wearing to nursery to show his friends :)

Christmas jumpers

 

This time of year I always start making my Christmas jumpers, these range from 14" to 24" something for everyone.

These are all made from double knit super soft yarn so they are nice and warm.

I like making these as they are so cute.

I have also made a few Snowman mitts and I will be making a few hats

Sensory gift

How to make a sensory square


Recently I've received 2 special request for sensory play square.   So I though I would do a how to made blog.

I'm going to use fat quarters to make the main part of these, this I normally choose a polycotton for the front and soft fleece or absorbent toweling for the back, and different ribbons.






Once I've cut these to the size I want I usually do 6.5" x 6.5" I then select the sensory ribbons to go around the edges between 2 and 3 each side.









Firstly I sew the ribbons on making sure to catch both ends.



Then I attached the backing so the front and back are face to face, and sew again making sure the ribbons are all sewn in, leaving a small gap to pull through to the right side.




I then sew around the complete square this ensures the ribbons are secure and triple sewn for security

Summer dresses and other things.

 

Its been a long time since I've been able to get out my sewing machine, and since the last time I've now got a brand new sewing machine, that has embroidery stitches and alphabet and numbers, and a dedicated sewing room to use.

I was thinking of making sun dresses, cargo pants, shorts, tops and romper suits.

One idea I've had is to put a decorative stitch around the hem line, I have lots of lovely materials to choose from, poly cottons, and cotton jerseys, there's also a large selection of ribbons and laces.








These are soft jersey cotton 




Watch this space to more ideas.
