Lots of birthdays in the spring! Here are some of the gift items I've been working on for the last couple of weeks ...
Felted clogs following the Fiber Trends pattern. These knit up very quickly using a double strand of yarn and US 13 needles. I felted a pair for myself but plan to present the others with a humorous set of felting instructions so that the recipients can experience the amazing process (and the aroma of wet wool) for themselves.
Well, I just finished my 6th "London Beanie" -
I'm having a blast with circular needles (Addi Turbos ROCK!)
I made the first beanie for me and then decided that no matter what he wears, a 49 year old man will never look like David Beckham!
I left a couple out on the dining room table when my partner's kids came over. They all said "you knit these? They look just like the ones at Abercrombie and Fitch!" I also mentioned them to a 24 year old guy in my voiceover class and he asked me to make one for him.
