I’ve been knitting quite a bit more than usual in the Summer months this year, mainly down to the fact I have a lovely set of bamboo knitting needles (a fabulous Christmas present from my sister-in-law) which means my knitting isn’t suffering due to the heat (metal needles squeak for me when my hands get hot). This has been very important in the last couple of weeks with the incredible heatwave we’re having at the moment.
So whilst I’ve been struggling a little to find a craft fair to attend, I’ve been putting my time to good use and making some new stock and experimenting with patterns and ideas.
With the Open Golf on I thought I’d make some golf club covers and have a few different designs. I love the feel of knitting with larger needles and the aran yarn is so soft. It makes great pom-poms too!
I’ve also made a new cat, with some multi-colour yarn I had in my stash. It comes complete with a black crochet nose and red button eyes!
Finally I thought I’d use up some oddments of yarns making some ipod covers. I hate wasting lovely yarn, so this has been a great way to use up some gorgeous chenille and merino wools. along with a cotton and baby soft yarns. These are so tactile!
So, what do you think of the new ideas? I hope you like them as much as I enjoyed making them. I hope to have them on a stall soon too, but if you would like any of the gifts above, please message me via e-mail (email@example.com), twitter (@crafty_kath) or facebook( www.facebook.com/Handmadebykatherine). I can also make them to your own colour-schemes.
