Hello friends! I don’t know about you, but I am almost ready to unwrap my presents as it is beginning to look a lot like Christmas in our house. The tree is up and the house is looking festive with all the decorations around. I am looking forward to some relaxing time in front of the fire with some knitting or crochet making something for myself or loved ones, rather than work related.
A few things have already been finished over the last couple of weeks…
This is the Ghita Cowl from Helga Isager’s new book – Room 606
available in English, German and Danish
Beautiful Christmassy Fingerless Mittens – this month’s make from the content of Amanda Blooms
My girl wearing a cowl designed and knitted by herself – A gift for a friend.
Simple does it – a last minute decoration
Row 1: 1dc in second ch from hook and in each ch along – turn
Row 2: 1ch, 1dc in each dc along – turn
Repeat row 2 until piece measures approx. 50cm
Fasten off and weave in ends.
Finish: Fold the crochet strip as shown in the photo. Using thread and beads work through each layer to assemble.
This is some of the beautiful Isager Yarn I hand dyed back in the summer using natural plant extracts.
Perfect for some me – time knitting. Look out for progress photos on my Instagram.
I want to sign off for this year by saying:
Thank you for reading and leaving comments here and on any of my other social media, I truly appreciate it.
Wishing you all a very merry Christmas, I hope that all you wish for in 2016 will come true.
See you in the New Year.
