Last week I showed you this fabric that I got whilst on holiday:
It knitted up really quickly and was very easy once I found this wonderful blog explaining exactly how to do it, including casting on, joining and casting off.
It was a really good job that they explained how to join as I had 2m that was not part of the rest of the ribbon. I am a bit disappointed by this as I really expected that it would all be one continuous ‘spool’. (Maybe I am being a bit over ambitious?)
It was ‘easy’ to knit although it didn’t flow like my knitting usually does as you had to put the needle into the hole each time rather than wrapping around but this was not really a problem. It probably just took a little bit longer.
This does not however take anything away from the fact that it has created a lovely scarf that I am really looking forward to wearing. I am really pleased that I bought it – it will serve as a long-standing reminder of my holiday in Broadstairs.
As always I am heading over to Handmade Harbour to catch up with all the events over there. First however, I wish to apologise to everyone who linked up last week on Blogger. I did read all the blogs, mostly even 2 posts to make up for the week before. I also commented on them all but for some reason WordPress and Blogger were having a bit of an argument and wouldn’t acknowledge each other. It was only on the ones that ask for a catcha code. Searching on the web it was not just me having this issue. I am hoping everything is back up and running this week. Sorry about that. There were some lovely creations (as always.)
As a final ‘plug’ – I have started up a series called Blogging Buddies aimed at encouraging people to start (or have recently started) blogging. If you know of anyone who is interested in Blogging then do send them my way – I have got so much out of blogging that I am trying to give other people the chance to experience the same positive things as me. I try to do it on Wednesdays. Thank you.
