Hi everyone, I have some progress to show on my Heaven and Earth work in progress, I love this pattern!
I am stitching this on 18 count 2 threads over 2 using DMC stranded cotton thread. This the first page nearly completed, I think there are 8 pages left.
Stitching and knitting news
Thankyou to everyone who commented on my sock project bag in the last post, I always reply to everyone who comments unless you are a no reply blogger, which means I can't because I don't have an email address.
I was asked where I got the instructions from for the project bag, but I just made it up, however, there are lots of tutorials for project bags on the internet, just type in project bag tutorials and lots will come up.
I am currently working on my Heaven and Earth cross stitch lady at the moment and hoping to make good progress on her.
I usually am inspired to knit in the winter time, particularly after watching all the knitting podcasts lately, I have now finished my first pair of socks and I have another project lined up, which is a lovely wool cowl. I have purchased some gorgeous Rowan yarn, my preferred choice as it always knits up so beautifully. (photo below)
I am quite pleased with the result to say they were my first pair, just can't wait to start my next pair.
The wool used for the socks was Drops Fabel
75% wool and 25% polyamide
I am enjoying using the project bag that I made, I blogged about it here
I used these needles which were an absolute delight to knit with, I knit the socks on a circular needle and used double pointed needles where the pattern called for it.
If you wish to know how to learn to knit socks I followed this tutorial here
Until next time, happy stitching!
