Winter Holiday

Well! It has been a very cold December which has been good for my knitting needles in the first half of the month. I have been knitting hats, scarves, mittens, gloves and neck ponchoes. Then I got a very bad cold that lasted ten days. Not nice when you are stuck indoors and BORED. I am feeling much better now and looking forward to new year.

I wish you all the best for coming year.

Aran Cabled Beret

I love this beret. Not sure it will suit me though.

It would make a perfect gift for winter with a lovely scarf to match. What do you think?

Project I am working on

This is for me.

Super Chunky and perfect for the Winter.

My first crochet project

I am very pleased with my first cowl.

Made with Bamboo cotton.

Hats! Hats! More hats!

Purple beanie hat


Beanie hat for me


Beanie hats are very popular. Close friends and family are regularly asking me to knit them one. Originally, all the hats would have the same design and some people would ask for two maybe three and that was when I started trying out different designs based on the stitches, patterns that I know that would suit a beanie hat style. Cables was a design suggested by friends.

So here are some of my attempts.

No! The blanket is not one of the designs. :-)

That was an Alphabet Train Blanket thatI finished two weeks ago. Pleased with it but I think next time I would use a chunky yarn instead of DK yarn.

Throughly enjoyed knitting this beret. I don't wear berets as I don't think they suit me. You have to know how to wear them but I must say it does look nice.

It has been several months since I have posted on my blog. I have been very busy with work and then I was ill for several weeks and now I am on the mend. Not much knitting was done for a few weeks but now I am back in the swing of things I have knitted a baby blanket and lots of neck ponchoes, fingerless gloves and beanie hats. All items that we need for this very cold weather we have been having.

Here are the baby blankets that I am knitting at the moment.

Oh1 I have added a Child's Aran knit cardigan that I recently completed.
