The first of my Friday Knitting Round Up Posts, encouraged by a few friends and also the recent award.
I knit pretty much every evening - I have found it helps to keep my hands busy, I actually hurt less, or at least am distracted somewhat from the pain by doing something with my arm and hands than if I just sit and watch something.
This week I have knitted two garments, a purple dress and a little pink cardigan.
Peggy Sue was the first to model this purple dress as she had matching purple shoes so insisted it was a 'must have' dress.
Next Cora wanted to try it on and it contrasts beautifully with her dark skin. She also had found a pair of purple shoes to match!
Cora enjoys a walk in the garden as it is a relatively mild afternoon.
She meets up with Tui Renate who is also wearing a newly knitted cardigan.
It is a soft 'baby' pink colour with shimmery highlights in it. Difficult to photograph.
Tui Renate has teamed it with a skirt made a few years ago with some vintage fabric I had.
Trying to capture her pretty face is difficult at this time of the year - the light isn't the best.
I don't just knit for Sasha & Gregor, I also knit for both larger and smaller dolls.
Next up some of my 'other doll' knitting completed the last couple of weeks.
I knitted this little Lace effect dress which also fits Kish Riley
I have been enjoying some 'Tiny Knitting' and have made a few dresses for my little AI doll Xanthe Phylica
Knitted on UK Size 16 needles with 2 ply.
A cardigan is just what is needed for the cooler weather.
A dress for Hitty Anne.
Just before Christmas I decided it was high time I finished some of my own WIPs starting with a hooded jumper I started in NZ a few years ago. I don't do a lot of 'big person' knitting any more as it tends to hurt my arm a lot, but I have discovered the 'Knit Pro' needles and they really make quite a difference.
Next was another cardigan I started in NZ a couple of years ago.
I finished a small red jumper I had started too many years ago to remember - I didn't like the way the wool knitted up, but bit the bullet and got to it and that too was finished before Christmas
I knitted my son a Christmas jumper at his request and choosing.
Finally a project I am still working on that I must have started...ahem ... about 15 years ago is this patchwork effect jacket. It came to a halt as I discovered I had run out yarn - and of course they no longer produce it. Fortunately I was able to track some down via Ravelry and I hope to finish this in the next week if I am lucky - I only have the sleeves to do, oh and the button band - perhaps it won't be finished until April!
