What should have been on my knitting needles

August 23, 2013

At the start of the summer I made a resolution to get cracking with some of my personal knitting projects (Purl Alpaca cardigan, Millamia fair isle cushion and Toft amigurumi x2) and really bust that stash.

How much have I achieved? If you're a knitter you'll know the answer is none - but instead I made the fab Robbo Robot from the book Amigurumi for a friend's birthday (which she loved - look how cute he is!) started learning to sew (I really want to be able to make my own dresses) with a course at Pandora in Guildford and another now booked later in the year, and started to launch my patterns and knitting kits, oh and added to the stash too with more yarns and now fabrics.

Finished Robbo Robot


I really do need to make that Purl Alpaca cardi though as it will be a perfect autumn addition to my current wardrobe staples of dresses.

I also learnt new tricks along the way - with the amigurimi you can make COMPLETELY jogless stripes which I found at this fab tutorial here. This is genius - although I actually followed the second method because I had so many stripes and was on a robot crochet deadline!

The day I made my new tote bag at Pandora!


The day my new sewing machine arrived was VERY exciting!


I also think it goes to show that you can't always plan creativity and ideas, and often have to follow what is more fluid, although perhaps this is just an excuse to keep adding to that stash!

So what are my planned projects now? All of the above plus a number of sewing patterns, this could take a while...

What have you knitted over the summer and have you made any knitting/crochet resolutions?
