I finally have some finished objects. First a pair of socks for my niece
I used a basic sock pattern, but then added a cable twist. The wool is a skein I won in a blog competition from JCHandmade.
The second finished object I had’nt even planned on making. My friend who just had a baby had knitted lots of squares for a baby blanket, she had sewn some of the squares together but then got frustrated with it. One day she brought a brown bag to work, and asked me try and do something with it. The bag contained wool,lots of knitted squares, some joined together with threads hanging everywhere. I nearly frogged the whole thing, but I gave it a try.
It came out really pretty.
Finally the “tween” is now a teenager. Let me tell you the terrible two’s is a piece of cake compared to tween and teenagers.
