Ian’s Scarf

Over 6ft tall- so if Ian gets lost we can use the scarf to indicate his height. Roughly.

Modelled by me, I'll get Ian to model it when he receives it.

A spiffing accessory for any gentleman

This is a scarf I knitted using a few balls of that favourite Lang wool which I used for the Red Hat (see below). It’s for my friend Ian which he asked me to start over a year ago and I’ve only just finished (although there were a good 6 months where I didn’t touch it), so it covers whichever gifts I owe him from anything imbetween! As you can see it’s made to roughly represent Ian’s height, apart from that lots of the detail comes from the dyes in the wool. I knitted it in a K1P1 pattern and just kept going and going until I felt it was big enough.

Now we just need to make sure it reaches Durham in one piece!  He also specified that I’m not to make the box too embarrassing. Any suggestions on how to make a box embarrassing are appreciated 😉

Little Big Knitted

Knitted Sackboy

One of my favourite things I’ve knitted. Based on Sackboy from Little Big Planet. Who would’ve thought that tabloid newspapers would be a good source for knitting patterns!

Bear Love

Knitted with a kit my Gran gave me

My Gran gave me a knitting kit and this was the lovely result =) Decided to add the heart on a whim but I think it really finishes it nicely.

Momiji Hat Antics

The Momiji Doll I based it on

The hat I made based on it

I was really happy with how this hat turned out. I have strange ambitions to knit every Momiji hat out there!

Green Hat

Continuing my fascination with Lang Wool

Really interesting how the wool pattern emerged in a different way. Unfortunately I decided to mess with the measurements on this one and it turned out a bit mishapen! Have frogged it and intend to re-knit it soon!

Red Hat

The first hat I knitted

 

This was the first hat I knitted after a knitting in the round workshop I attended. I ended up giving it away in an art swap but absolutely love the Lang wool I used for it and the different shades in it. I might get more and knit myself a hat and gloves set.
