It was my birthday this week (I was bleepty2) and I received this wonderful present from the Big and Wee men…
It’s the Addi Click knitting needle set! I may have hinted (i.e. said it straight out…) that I wanted this. You may have spotted that there is a pair of needles missing from the last picture. That’s because I started using it already. I got some lovely natural and coral coloured cotton twine recently and it feels lovely to knit with on these needles even though I’ve only done a few swatch rows so far…
I can’t wait to whip something up with these needles and this cotton.
Have a great weekend!
I’ve been working on a pattern for some vertical striped wrist warmers or muffatees (I love that name…) and have come up with this so far…(excuse the rubbish photography, taking a photo of my right hand with my left hand is not something I find easy!)
I love the look and texture of the Freedom Echo wool and the fact that it’s made from recycled jeans and t-shirts.
The thing I’m not sure of now is – whether to put vertical stripes all around the thing or leave it with the two stripes only. I may have to try it both ways to see which I like best.
What do you think?
Just a few photos I took today of the lovely, different coloured version of Starry Moony Night I had test knitted. It turns out the wee man is quite a willing model, although he’d rather be on his scooter than stay still…
The pattern is free and is available from my Ravelry store.
Have a great weekend everyone!
