Another blanket that I started up during May and it’s another scrappy blanket made of leftovers and it’s so much fun to knit this one. The picture is showing the wrong side of it and here underneath is the front. No seeming just attache as you go. Brilliant.
These socks have a long history with me because I started way back in 2011 or thereabout and I was a new knitter then after a long pause from 1987 when I just had started to learn it back in 1985 with mums help. So when I put this to the side and left it for some time I could not see where in the pattern I was because I was not experienced enough at that time, so I ripped it all up and left it to that, but I had deiced to use this yarn for That sock in the future and that future was now in 2021.
I’m so pleased with them and the pattern is so easy to knit and it looks nice and I managed to make them to match. There will be more socks in this pattern.
If you want to give these a go then you’ll find the pattern here at Ravelry. The pattern is in Swedish and English by Helene Wallin
I wanted to crochet this blanket for so many years now that I have forgotten for how long and I never got around to start because there was always something else on the go but now I had so many leftovers from sock knitting and blanket knitting that the time was right. The pattern is free and it’s from the Attic24 and the very talented Lucy has made this for us all to make. I chained 300and the yarn is fingering and the hook I use is 2.50.
This will take the time it takes because I use scraps/leftovers from other projects and I’m in no hurry.
It’s on the floor next to my chair and as soon as I have some leftovers from something it goes straight into the blanket.
This knit was a real struggle for me. I never thought I would be able to make it but I didn’t give up and I tried at least 15 times before I got the hang of it and managed to finish it. I never thought knits and purls could be so hard and this is the Fishermans’ Rib and held with 2 strands of yarn. One was the main one and it was Cascade Yarns Heritage white and the rest was leftovers from sock knitting and shawl knitting.
I have to say that I’m glad that I finished it because it’s so soft and squishy and I might make another one in the future, now that I know how to knit it, but I’m not in a hurry.
