Here’s everything I knitted and crocheted in 2015, complete with links to patterns. As I haven’t updated for a while there are several new finished objects towards the end of the post, including Wee Lima and some baby hats, as well as an ‘ugh’ and what I’m working on now!
No-purl ribbed scarf:
A nice ribbed sock:
Crochet baby hoodie:
Ode to pinstriping:
Floral slouchy hat:
Purl stripes baby hat:
Strawberry (or blueberry) hat:
This is my recent ‘ugh’, which was based on Chanelette but with a waffle stitch pattern instead. I gave up on it because it came out completely the wrong proportions. I’m kind of heartbroken about all the time I put into it. It was meant to be for my niece:
As my niece’s favourite colours are pink and yellow, my replacement project for her that I’m now working on is a rose cardigan in this lovely buttercup yellow cotton:
The other special project I’m working on is also coming along nicely. Just one more month to go!
Happy new year and happy knitting xx
Now the festive period is out of the way I can show you some things I made people as gifts.
I knitted this hat and mittens set for my niece, who is two and a half. They’re too big for her but she tried them on straight away, hopefully she still likes them next winter when they might actually fit her!
I also made a baby blanket and bootees set for a friend who had a gorgeous baby girl in 2014:
Last year in total I made two baby blankets, one pair of bootees, two pairs of mittens, one hat, one cardigan and a crochet ninja, and I started on a blanket, a jumper, a pair of socks and a scarf!
This a cute little project I recently made for a friend’s baby. It’s knit from the top down with no seams and is size 6-9 months. Pattern here.
