I am joining in with Thursday's My Creative Space at Kootoyoo.
Clockwise from left:
- Circular knitting loom
- Yarn - Moda Vera Flirt in Redmix
- Crochet hook
- Start of a narrow scarf
This is the second knitting project that I have started in a month. The other lies abandoned in a corner. There was just too much tension between us, if you know what I mean?
I had a hunch that I might do a little better with a knitting loom. Needles were exasperating and frankly, fraught with danger (not altogether dissimilar to my experience with stocks when I learnt to ski).
This time my knitting looks more regular and the tension is nice and even. I'm sold. Now all I need to do is work out how to fit a 36 peg circular loom in a handbag.
And here, in another corner of my creative space, is the contents of a special parcel that arrived today. The delightful and very generous Gina of Clutterpunk sent a beautiful handmade H1N1 Swiney (wrapped in these fabulous pieces of fabric). Swiney is destined for a close rellie - the perfect gift for the virologist who has everything!
Now you must go and say hi to Gina. She is having a wonderful giveaway over at her blog ... do take a look!
