This little guy was made by special request of Millie to take on her school trip. You may recognise him as Finn the human from the cartoon "Adventure Time." He is knitted in Stylecraft Special Aran and is a very splendid fellow. There is loads of yarn left over from this project which needs to be made into something. it was important to use exactly these colours so I couldn't raid my stash and had to buy some more. Here he is having an adventure in our garden...
My socks on two needles have at last got finished and sewn up - just in time for the heatwave! I am quite pleased with them. The seams are hardly noticeable and the knitting is much quicker on two needles. I used about a ball and a quarter of very cheap sock yarn purchased at "Tiger". Considering it was only £1 a ball it is pretty nice.
I love this pretty top in Rowan Savannah. It was very simple to knit and only took two evenings on size 8mm needles. The crochet trim round the neck is the perfect finishing touch. I plan to make another of these and will add a few inches to the length - it is really a bit short for me.
I have mostly been working on my crochet blanket this week - it's looking beautiful and I can't wait to finish it.
