yes I finally completed my lovely tank top and have worn it too.
What started like this…..
….is now looking like this.
I thoroughly enjoyed creating this and am enjoying wearing it even more.
I had to learn how to do the icrod finish and can honestly say that is it a lot easier than I thought.A lovely way to finish edges of any kind. A great tutorial can also be found on the Purl Bee website.
What next I ask? No need to search for too long, Purl Bee have all the inspiration needed and before I know what is knitting, I’m in the middle of my next project. Or should I say projects? I’m in the middle of knitting a variegated snood
(another of Purl Bee’s creations) a silky mohair jacket inspired by Debbie Bliss and trying to get to grips with some linen wool I bought in the summer.
Event of the week must be the Knitting & Stitching Show at Alexandra Palace, London this weekend. (8-12 October)
I visited last year and was overwhelmed by the volume and beauty of what was on offer. Unfortunately I will not be able to visit this year 😦
However there is still the Farnham Maltings Festival of Crafts next weekend (18&19th October) I quite fancy going to have a look at what promises to be a very inspirational fair.
oooohhhh so much to do, I love it.
Hope you are having a great week too
