I would love to say that I have worked tiredlessly on all of my projects this week, but that's just not true - I have done a little bit of work on most of my projects but not enough to share them all with you so I'll just share my practice pieces with you!!!
Firstly my lovely MIL bought me some Debbie Bliss cotton DK yarn for Easter; I really wanted some cotton to get started on amigurumi - did it work? Not so much; I did some practicing on a tiny piglet but amigurumi is small, the stitches are small and it's hard work - I will be persevering, but maybe on the weekend when the children are with their dad!! These are the pretty yarns and the super cute bag my lovely wife bought for me (UK people - the bag is from Primark):
One of the projects I have done quite a bit of work on this week is my fair isle practice piece, which will be a felted needle case. I'm over halfway done with this now; just 30 more rows to go. I'm really gaining speed and confidence with this piece; my tension is getting more even - it's hard to get tension when you're knitting both english and continental in one piece!!! Anyway here it is:Tami and Ginny - go check out their blogs and see what everyone else is working on.
