A just because update

I'm only doing this because I feel like it!! lol I've got so many scarves on the needles, now I know where all my needles are disappearing to!!! It's not that I need any more scarves, but these patterns are too nice NOT to do. I may well end up sending most of them to others. We shall see when I finally get some of them finished.

The Kiri

I suddenly realized I should add a link to the Kiri shawl pattern,in-case there was anyone interested in doing it. There is also a group dedicated to the Kiri. Just go to yahoo groups, and you will find it there. Anyway, here is the link for the pattern, which is in pdf format. my_images/my_patterns/kiri.pdf

It is a really good pattern, and once you get into the rhythm, goes pretty quickly.

An FO!!

I finally finished my doily!!! This is the first time I've ever done a crochet chain cast off. It took a little getting used to, but once I got the hang of it, it was actually quite easy. Here are two pictures of the doily. The first one is before blocking - just off the needle/hook. The second picture is of it drying on the freezer.

What a difference blocking makes!!! On to the next project - my Kiri really needs some work on it. A very good friend of mine has lent me her 5.5mm long circular needles. A very big thank you, Donna, for that. I'm up to 6 repeats each side on my Kiri. Don't know how big I'll make it.

My Kiri

After seeing pictures of others Kiri's, I now know that I really shall have to do my next one in the original colours I had picked out for it. Yes, I am talking about doing a second Kiri!!! I will finish this one I have on the needles, and will definitely be doing another one. Am I crazy, or what?!?!? lol

Some more work I'm doing

Here are a couple more pictures of work I"m doing. The multi coloured thing on the floor, is actually a baby blanket I'm putting together for someone. I am provided with the squares, and then I just do a DC(english term), around the outside of each square, then crochet slip-stitch them together. I'm trying to stick to a pattern with this blanket, and onlyhope I have enough of the colours to do the whole blanket. I think it will be a cot sized blanket, not sure, yet.
The other picture is of a scarf I've recently started. Yes, there are three balls!! It's going to be braided, once the three seperate pieces have beenknitted to the right length. Then, I shall do as a very good friend of mine suggested - thanks for that Donna - and I shall knit about 1" with the three joined - after I've braided them of course!! I think this one will be getting sent overseas, butnot sure, yet. I may decide I like it too much.
Although I won't be needing it until next winter. It being nice and hot, and summery over here.

I joined a ring

And have no idea of how to make use of it!!! How's that for dumb?!?!? I'm supposed to add something to this site, but don't know how!!!!
I'm still working on the doily, not too far to go on it. It ends up with 600sts in total!!! That is gonna take me a while to work each round, I can tell you!!! I already have the next doily planned, though. It looks really nice, and will not be doing it in white.
I'm also putting together a baby blanket for someone. I get supplied the squares. I just need to put them together. Easy! Yeah right! Trying to come up with the right colour combinations, with bright pink, bright orange, and dark brown, and colours as opposite as those, is NOT an easy thing!!! Fun, though. I've actually got two of them to do. I will take a picture of the first one, once I've got a few more of the squares put together.

Some more work I've been doing

Here are a couple of pictures of a doily that I'm knitting. I've finally been able to get it on one circular needle. I started this doily on two circular needles, don't really like DPN's.

The first picture is a close up of the doily. It has been a challange for me, but well worth the effort. I already have another doily that I want to do. This next one is called 'Flowers in the Trees'.
