It has been quiet on the blogging this last period. It is not that I don’t have anything to show or tell, but I just hadn’t the time to sit down and write. And then when I did find some time, it didn’t work because I have a new computer and not everything had been installed. So I hope this time it will work and I can actually post this post.
I have been knitting a LOT!! To test the pattern I’ve written for the Giverny-bag I’ve knitted another one, and it is now upstairs to get blocked. This weekend I can sew it together and next week I’ll show it.
What I can show is how my knitting needles look. My favorite kind of needles are wooden or bamboo needles, but not for sizes below 3 mm.
These are the needlepoints of some circular needles I used. They actually were once straight! Within a few rounds, I always manage to bend them like this and that is why I can’t use bamboo or wooden needles. Once I even broke a pair after knitting only 5 stitches!
Something else I want to show you are some pictures of skirt guards made by other ladies. When someone buys the pattern, I always ask if I can see a picture of the finished skirt guards, and some kind ladies actually send them.
I really love the diversity of the colors used. Thank you Lydia, Kate, Heidi and Ana for sharing!
