#29 IHKW more like...

Another weekend has gone by in a blur but I must admit I am happy as I have not one, but two finishes this weekend!

Ok I admit, I did no stitching but focused on my knitting instead. With the colder/darker mornings drawing in already I have gone a little scarf crazy and finished two this weekend!

Daffy


As someone who isn't exactly a good knitter (I didn't even know how to cast off until yesterday) I am quite proud of these. They knitted up so fast and I like the finished effect.

New Downton Abbey starts this evening so I may just make a start on the red yarn I have in my stash - sounds like a plan!

Look forward to seeing everyone elses IHSW, which hopefully will be more stitch and not knit, and maybe get my bug back!

  6. Love your knitted boas! I have started a crocheted boa, but the yarn is a lot thicker than what you worked with, and my boa looks a bit strange to me.

    1. Crochet is my next "thing to learn" perhaps it could be my new years resolution? :) Keep on with yours, I'm sure it will look great in the end :D
