Bombini

Bombini by Kay F Jones

This was a really quick and easy knit. A nice cowl that starts ans an triangle and later you knit it in the round. So it’s more of an bandanna than a cowl. Love the colours too. If you would like to knit this one, then you find it on Ravelry and the pattern is for a fingering and a worsted weight version.

4th Dr. Who Scarf

Me and my husband was in England in April this year for the Marillion Week End (three gigs by Marillion) and we met up with loads of friends, and one of them is a massive Dr. Who fan. He was wearing his long scarf and mentioned to me that he wouldn’t mind me knitting him a new one because the one he’s wearing is getting a bit knackered. I told him that I would be more than happy to do that for him so here I am after lots of browsing the net for the pattern and the right colours and then finding the colours in the right yarn weight. I am very pleased with all the colours apart from the “camel/Beige”. I found a perfect shade but the yarn was to thick so I had to go with this lighter one and I just hope that my friend will not be disappointed over it.

4th Dr. Who, Tom Baker.

So when I found all the colours I started to knit it on the 10th of July and this is how it looks right now.

The shade of the “Camel” colour is very hard to photograph properly and sometimes it’s almost white and others its almost perfect to what I wanted in the first place.

I am over half way through the pattern now and I hope I will have it finished before we are off to Wales and England in 8 weeks and I can hand it over to him in person if possible.

Yarn used: Drops Karisma, Drops Lima and Cascade 200 Superwash.
Needled: 4.0 mm (US 6)

Finished: Still knitting on it.

House-warming Blanket is Finished!

The house warming blanket is finally finished and blocked, just in time for my husband to take it with him and hand it over to his daughter who now share her first house with another girl, so what better to do than to crochet a house warming blanket for her?

I have to say that I am very pleased with how it turned out and would love to make another one for myself but I have so many other items waiting to be finished first before I start a new thing.

The yarn I was using was Drops Fabel and it’s not a good yarn to crochet with because it’s very loosely spun so it splits very easily and that is annoying to say the least, but it turned out to be very good for this blanket.
