Just Knit It

During the 2012 events (Olympics and Ravellenic Games) I have been knitting up some quick relaxing knits using my Just Knit It pattern.

Here are a couple; you can find more examples over on the ravelry pattern page (click on the link - if but you'll have to sign in on ravelry to see them).

Colour combinations

I just love when I find two yarns that go together to make a great knit.

These are some of the ones I have waiting to be knitted up:

Dip dye

Apparently this is the latest thing.

For hair:

And maybe for knitting too ?

Beautiful Cobweb

Another recent pattern (click here to go to the ravelry pattern page).

This one seemed to have a mind of its own. I set off with a vague plan to make "something fluffy" and a day later this was finished. It was not at all what I had originally had in mind, but I liked it and so wrote it up.

Simply seashells

Same colours as in the garden in this shawl:

Dad's socks

Ready to send.

First 2012 challenge achieved - make something subtle.

I hope he likes them.

Rocky Mountaineer

The Rocky Mountaineer prototype found its perfect owner over Christmas:

Flying Scotsman - take 2.

I'm still working on a new construction for shawls using stockinette.

Flying scotsman take 2 produced a good shape for a shawl, but not the shape I like to wear, so there will be a take 3....

Knitting overload?

I asked my daughter and niece to take some photos of some of the stuff I've been knitting - this is what they came up with .....

Not quite what I was expecting.

Apparently the yellow and white is a "human egg".
