Currently knitting with…

February 27, 2011

I’m definitely in a knitty phase at the moment. I’m not sure why — I normally prefer the speed and colourful, often retro results of crochet, but at the moment most of the things on my to-make list are knitted.

I’ve been stashing this lovely Debbie Bliss Baby Cashmerino for a while – it’s (almost) all been purchased in John Lewis yarn sales over a couple of years, for no good reason other than that I couldn’t resist the colours or lovely squishyness of it. Now with a little man on the way, I don’t have to look far to find an excuse to start using it up.

It’s lovely to work with and the first project is almost complete. Here’s a sneak peek:

Very restrained, don’t you think? I’m only using two colours rather than an entire rainbow. I’ve had to learn a new skill for this item — knitting on a circular needle. I’ve always knitted socks on DPNs and found circular needles a rather strange idea, but I seem to have picked it up okay, after the initial tangle.
