Wasn’t feeling 100% over the weekend and Jim had a lot of work to do at home so we had a quite one and I did a bit of knitting.

The sales are on so I’ve been able to pick up odd balls for 1Euro and then figure out later what to do with them. This is a pattern from stitch n bitch with my own adaptation with the buttons and crocheted loops.

Jim got a beanie as well but his was made up of leftovers, the green yarn I had used for a neck wrap but had muted it with a dark green mohair, here in the beanie it’s all on its lurid own and highlighted by the black. But I think he can pull it off, no buttons or loops on his!.

This is more stylish, I like the wooden toggles, doesn’t he look handsome!

This pair of arm warmers will be finished as soon I work out what the repetitive mistake is Im making on the second edging. The first one is done so why am I having problems with the second one?! So assuming in the fresh light of day it will knit up no problems all I’ll have left to do is sew them up and pop them on. Cant be bothered blocking and pressing, it’s not a jumper, so no real need right?

  2. I love the wonderful buttons on the hat – lovely idea!

    You will REALLY need to block and press the wristwarmers. The nature of this pattern requires you to sew them up accurately, and it will change everything if you blockand press them first. I promise – I’ve seen this pattern done a number of times 🙂

  3. Katia I knew it!! All morning I’ve put off sewing them up despite being desperate to wear them. Now I’ll have to wait but I know you’re right.

    The buttons on the beanie are cute, but the beanie size is to small for my big head so it doesn’t look so great in the photo all stretched out. It’s a gift for a friend, i just hope her head is smaller then mine.

    Thanks for the feedback, I need it and to let you know I’m loving your Knots Blog, it’s giving me lots of inspiration and motivation!
