Dear readers, my life’s been too political this week for me to want to write about politics of my own free will. So here are some of the pieces I’ve knitted lately.
I bought this wool on a whim because it was so beautiful, and I wasn’t sure what to do with it. But I’ve been wanting to try out wearing ties for a while, and saw this beautiful pattern for a seed stitch tie. It is so lovely to wear.
This bag is for a very dear friend who has the worst work schedule in the universe. Even though we don’t spend much time together, I want her to know that I spend a lot of time thinking of her, and it takes a lot of time to make something yourself. Here’s the bag pattern; I made a few modifications, like knitting the handles in i-chord.
Here’s the pattern for this fairy cake tea cosy. I bought the teapot charms for this person before I thought of doing this pattern! I hope she’ll like it. Modelling the cosy is a teapot she herself gave me. (People give me a lot of teapots and teacups. Perhaps I just seem to be that kind of person.)
