2002 Hot off the machine!
This is a fisherman's rib jumper in
made on my 9mm bulky.
2001 Some presents for family for Christmas:
Crochet rug in mohair with gold lurex centres. This rug
the colour scheme in my daughter's room. I imagine her wrapping
in this rug while she studies. The vest is in tweed stitch
squares, and like the one I made for myself below, is from Sally
book "Styles". The bands and the back are done on the knitting
while the fronts are done by hand. A quick way to get things
2001 The Faux Blue Fox Fur Coat!
Here is another !
2001 This waistcoat is from Sally Melville's "Styles" and is called "The Whistler Vest". It is made with Cleckheaton Machine Wash 8 ply as the main colour and numerous other contrasts in similar weights with a few mohair squares for variety. I made this garment in one piece to the armholes. It was very quick and satisfying to knit.
1996 Love of Colour
The photo below shows my love of colour. Chris and I are wearing variations of Kaffe Fassett's "Tumbling Blocks" and Victoria is wearing "Outlined Star". Alex's jumper is plain.
The yarn for Alex's jumper was bought especially for that
The other jumpers were assembled from my stash, built up from leftovers
from other projects, yarn bought at sales and op shops and bartered
friends. My yarn stash has easily doubled since then. I
knitting most of the body of Victoria's jumper on the long flight from
Melbourne to Los Angeles, back in those glorious days of being able to
knit on planes. I was absorbed in the knitting, so I didn't
the people walking past. My son told me that people were actually
coming to look at what I was doing, and more than once!
jumper is in mohair, and the yarn used for the outline has lurex
so the stars twinkle.
