I have recently been re-inspired by knitting, and wool craft in general. So much so, that I have even written a pattern of my own!
I thought I'd start this blog so I can share not only what I am knitting at the moment, but my own creations and the patterns as well.
I hope you enjoy them, and come back often.
Mock Cable Hand Warmers
A Work in Progress . . .
The Finished Product . . .
These hand warmers have been knitted in "Sean Sheep Wool - Rockbank".
It is an 8ply/DK (equivalent) 70%Wool & 30% Soybean, from one of our Australian Chain Stores - BigW.
It is a varigated wool. When I finished knitting the pair of gloves, each one was different, but with the same blend of colours . . . kinda funky . . . I really like the effect.
These should work with any 8ply/DK wool.
edited to add: I thought I was using an 8ply/DK wool, but another website suggested it was a 10ply/Aran/Worsted wool. I think it would work well with either :)
