I’ve slowed down a bit thanks to the winter bugs floating around, but I’ve managed to pass the half-way point on my Ravelympic Projects.
Two of the bags I am doing, are ones I’ve done before. Two of my friends were keen to have one as well, so I added them to the Ravelympics to make me accountable about getting them done. So today, they were finally dry from felting, so I was able to add the magnetic closures and glue on the buttons. I think I need to call them High Noon and After Midnight. What a difference the base wool makes to the outcome of the project! KJ9 was begging to have the black one, so there may yet be more of these bags.
These are from the Gelato Bag Pattern by Fibre Trends and knit in Naturally Mohair Plus and a base plain colour.
Here they are photographed separately, as they look quite different when not next to each other.
I also knit up yet another Calorimetry ( I do have three girls after all), this time in Panda Zoomy. I *heart* zoomy, partly because it knits up so quick, but also because the colours are just so bright and cheery.
I modified the pattern so that it would fit the wool and the child. I caston 72 on 5mm needles and did 4 repeats. Perfect!
And here is my gorgeous model, Miss KT4, very excited to finally have one of her own.
I’m half way through another pair of longies, but forgot to photograph it, so will post about that tomorrow.
