For my year of projects I have already managed to complete one of my 12 chosen patterns! Yay!
I made these legwarmers for a ballet dancing friend in return for something custom made in a craft swap. They are light denim blue (matched my jeans perfectly when I was wearing them) and made from vintage Icelandic Wool. They are really cosy - and I think I also need a pair... Very plain but also very pretty, although the cast on edge makes for a tight fit - how do I sort that out?!
This project helped with my skills as I used my Knit Pro circular needles for the second time - this time using magic loop and I knit both legwarmers at the same time! It was very interesting to begin with as I couldn't quite get my head around it but I have it now! And it has inspired me to make many many socks!!!
|Legwarmers as a WIP|
Apart from the legwarmers, I have become a little sidetracked this week as I seem to have a very fertile facebook page and everyone at the moment seems to be pregnant or they have a newborn so I am knitting/crocheting baby items!
I have one finished object, a little crocheted floral dress:
And one WIP, which is a white Matinee Jacket...
But I just can't get enough, and don't want to purely make baby items, so tonight I am going to also cast on Capucine from my Year of Projects list!
