Sneak Peek



Did you see I just knitted a swatch? If you looked at my previous post, the swatch was still on the needles. I had to relearn the binding off, and I think I did it right, yay!
Now, what to do with my pretty little swatch...
I folded it to a triangle and gave it to this little bunny so she'll feel warm. I think she likes it!



Btw, here's a sneak peek into my future finished design:

I would like to share this, my current design WIP. Only the sleeves are not yet done. Anyway, I cant show the whole piece yet, so here's a preview. Looks quite simple in mesh stitch, but its really hard to do the shaping and write out the pattern for it.

  1. Beautiful WIP! The colours are lovely -- very spring/summer like. Can't wait to see the finished project...someday :)

    Nice swatch, too btw. Binding off is something I have to always refer back to a resource for as this just doesn't stick in my mind.

  2. Thank you, Jaye! I like the colors too, I am using it on most of my designs...
    I think I may be doing the knitting a little more because I really love the feel of knitted fabric =)

  3. I know what you mean about the feel of knitted fabric, it is so different from crocheted fabric...less bumpy and almost softer I guess? Anyway, I like it too, which is part of the reason I'd like to get so much better knit-wise but that isn't going to happen unless I get off my booty and pick up the needles again ;)

  4. Yes, Jaye, we both should get off our booty and pick up the needles if we want to make something to wear :D But for me now I've got to pick up that hook and finish my designs which I'm finding harder to do than starting it :p

  5. Your WIP is beautiful I can't wait to see the finished project :) I have'nt knitted in awhile myself, usually make dishcloths and i've done a couple afghans, i find i get frustrated easier with knitting, especially when i make a mistake and have to rip out entire projects to fix it LOL crocheting is MUCH faster i think :)

  6. Thank you, Barb! I know what you mean, its hard to make a mistake in knitting, you have to be so careful with it, so it takes up much time.
