Yesterday morning this was hanging from our utility area window and had been for some days, yesterday afternoon when I returned from work it was gone. This morning the temperature was 6ºC and the snow and ice was finally melting away. I still skated down our garden path but I could finally see my car again and see an end to the snow.
Pheonix Knitting Forums. I know that my swapee has received this little stocking, these only take a couple of hours to knit and make up (I’m rubbish at colourwork, you may be faster!) and are so lovely. I may or may not have misplaced the one I knit for myself but I’m sure I’ll be able to whip up another for my own tree.
The other swap was a bigger Secret Santa swap, I know my swapee has received it so I'm OK to post about the FO here.
198 yards of heaven in King Cole Merino Blend Aran I used two full balls and had to break into a third on the second to last row. It was a quick knit and not too tricky so good for gifts. I have used this yarn before and will buy it again, the yardage isn’t great but it’s soft and knits up nicely, it washes well and it’s not too expensive as well as coming in a good range of solid colours. The top picture is most accurate for the colour which I believe is called Kingfisher from looking at the colourways on Modern Knitting but I think the ball band just had a number not a name.
