February Week 3 – Knitting

Well I am a little bit behind on my posts this month – although that doesn’t mean I haven’t been spending some time doing crafts.  It is more of a mix of things 1. Work has just been so busy including working at home in the evenings and 2. putting off “finishing” my wool projects.  I find the sewing together and sewing in ends the most boring part of Knitting and Crochet and as such sometimes I put it off for quite some time before I do it.

You will remember at the end of January I was half way through a second project – one that I was making for my hubby.  Well about 2 weeks ago (so really not that far into February) I completed that knitting project (well all except the finishing). So I have finally got round to finishing the project and therefore time to share it with you.

This was a pattern from Knitting and Crochet magazine.  As soon as I saw the pattern I fell in love with it.  Hubby does photography in his spare time and he has a few baby props and I knew this would be a perfect design to go with his baby props.  I used the free wool from the magazine for this project – although you could use whatever colour scheme you wished.

I hope you like it 🙂

Week 3 – Knitting

Been a busy week this week both at work and outside work.  But still had time to do a little bit of crafting in the evening to relax before bed.  So one of the projects I have been working on since Christmas was a Christmas present from my husband which is a knitting kit.  Whilst I had a minor issue with the kit to start (I only had 1/2 the pattern) Aldi quickly resolved this and supplied me the rest of the pattern.

I finished knitting the parts last week but I just had to sew it all together – this is definitely the bit of knitting I don’t enjoy and I have a tendency to put off.

So … here is Milly the Meerkat – please enjoy 🙂
