Deann is currently working on…
Deann is off having a jolly time at her Craft & Chat today and way too busy to post for herself 🙂 so she sent me this photo as her WIP this week!
She’s still knitting her Sail! mitten design in the green that you can see there. Eventually they will be made. I will nag her….
Next to Deann is Nicole who is a great cross-stitcher, she makes very cute retro character cross stitch pieces and has brought one along to work on.
Ellen is currently working on…
I’m working on my new pattern, I’ve got it all written up and tweaked all the sizing and now I’m knitting them. I still have to do a few things on the writing side and draw up a schematic, but it’s mostly there now!
These are lovely legwarmers, I haven’t made any for a while and wanted to design a pair that had a fancy cuff at the top to look like boot toppers.
The natural/purple finished pair blocking in the top picture are for me, they are in the largest size, I have wide calves. These are made in Twilleys of Stamford Mist DK (superfine alpaca/wool/dralon).
At the bottom you can see the yarns I’ve selected for the small and medium sizes.
My daughter is going to model the small size for me and asked for a pinky shade, so I’ve found this pretty lilac rose kind of colour, and cream for the tops. The yarn for that pair is Sublime Baby Cashmere Merino Silk DK.
The yarn for the medium size is Wendy Ramsdale 100% wool, with a lovely deep cherry for the legs and natural beige for the tops.
It will be good to able to give a few different yarn recommendations for this design. I love all of these colours and do think they will work nicely together for photos.
