STASH BUSTING CHALLENGE 2013
Having missed last weeks weigh in as we had visitors all weekend I dont really have that much to show for two weeks worth of knitting (I do however have quite a few Work in Progress items in my knitting bag - items I need to sew up urrgghhh!) does anyone else just hate sewing up?????
Anyway the following are the items I have managed this last two weeks
3x BABY HATS
2x PAIRS OF BEDSOCKS FOR ELDERLY WITH SWOLLEN FEET/LEGS
1X CORNER TO CORNER BABY BLANKET AND1X SQUARE
TOTAL STASH BUSTED 273g ........
I still say I must try harder - story of my life at school ha ha xx
The bedsocks I have tried to find out if I can publish the pattern for that or add a link but unable to find out who has the rights for it, so didnt want to do this and upset the apple cart (think at some stage it may have come from ladies magazine Peoples Friend), but these are just fantastic for the elderly in care homes or hospitals etc who sadly have such swollen feet - the stitches that you knit give such a wide stretchy end product - achieved by as you put right hand needle in to stitches on left hand needle, wind the yarn round twice finishing knitting stitch as normal then when you go back along row you drop the extra stitch you created (does this make sense!)
Well have a happy stash busting week xx
