These are my first christmas present, I know it's only October (I nearly wrote September then!), but I have loads to do, so thought I'd make a start. These are felted mitts, done in Paton's Jet, which is a beautiful blend of 70% Alpaca, 30% Wool. It felts beautifully as you'll see below!!
This was on a 40 degree economy wash, and they have shrunk absolutely loads, they are lovely and thick now! Can you tell I wish they were for me! :p
I've been busy today playing with clay, and have made these wee Bobombs, from Mario. I have to say I think they're adorable, and I'm thinking of making a few big ones to give to my friends as keyrings (they are 3 guys who are all geeks so would totally appreciate these).
I also made these today! My first crack at making my own knitting needles - well the toppers anyway! They are bamboo 4mm needles, and I baked the toppers onto them, using clay and glass beads. I think they're really cool, and hope to make more, but they are pretty expensive to make, so I'll probably not make many.
I'm going to have a go at this hat again now, and i'm knitting a sweater in Sirdar Blur, in black, but it's all stocking stitch so it's really just a black lump right now! I want to cast on some lace, namely Kiri, but should get my hat done first!
So much to do, so little time!!
