The First Batch Of Baby Knitting

I have the first batch of baby knitting ready to go. (See “The Singlets Have Been Started”.) To be honest, it has been ready for a few weeks but there have been a few communication delays in my attempts to get them delivered to the lady running the Neonatal Unit project. Hopefully I will get… Continue reading The First Batch Of Baby Knitting

The Singlets Have Been Started

I’m happy to report that the singlets have been started. I have picked up several patterns and have been trying them out. So far I have had slightly mixed results. The first pattern (lavender singlet) was fairly straight forward when knitting up but I probably won’t use it again. It has overlapping shoulders and, to… Continue reading The Singlets Have Been Started

I don’t know whether it’s because I’m getting older (I turned 60 recently) or whether it’s just a sign of our society today, but the years seem to go by so quickly now. Ideally I should have started on Christmas projects in early September, or at least have some… Continue reading Are You On Track For Christmas?

Homeless Knitting

A couple of months ago, in my post “Another Octopus and Some Scarves”, I was interested in trying to get some knitting done to donate to local homeless people. Unfortunately I was a bit late to get myself organised for this winter, but I am working on getting some significant supplies ready for next year.… Continue reading Homeless Knitting

My Crocheted Knockers

My recent post about “Knitted Knockers” mentioned that there was a crochet pattern available as well as the knitting patterns. A couple of weeks ago I went away for a few days, and I decided to trial the crocheted knockers pattern. The materials required for crochet are slightly more portable than those required for knitting.… Continue reading My Crocheted Knockers
