Well, the gifts weren’t actually late, but I’m late blogging about them… Instead of bringing flowers for a small hostess gift a few weeks back, I decided to bring two handknitted neckwarmers. Here they are:
Pudorosa Neckwarmer by Lia Moya
Yarn: Wilferts Pure Cashmere
Needles: 3.5 mm circular
Modifications: I skipped the buttonholes, instead I added a buttonloop and placed the button for an asymmetrical closing.
Ribbed Scarf by Celeste Glassel
Yarn: Drops Merino Extra Fine
Needles: 4.00 mm circular
Modifications: Inspired by Slim Slicks version I added a simple cable down the middle
I’m very happy with both these small projects, and they were both very well received 🙂 Recently I’ve had very little time for knitting, however I did find time to make these… admitted I was a little inspired by Valentines Day.
can come from many places, but one reliable source of inspiration are the blogs in my blogroll… I follow them on a more or less regular basis, and trust me when I say I treasure the time I spend visiting them. Beautiful work is creatively presented in each one of them, and it is almost certain that I’m inspired to do crafty things after a visit (if not, is it rather due to external restrictions in knitting time, like work, cleaning… you get the idea).
Beyond the blogroll there are the blogs I pass in my random seach for one thing or the other, somehow some of them have managed to capture my attention… and I have become a more or less regular guest in these places as well. Since these have become regular stops I actually ought to update the blogroll, however, until that happens enjoy the links here…
Beautiful work to be found here, and here and also a couple of Danish blogs always leave me inspired and in a good mood here and here… I’m sure there are plenty more out there, I like the thought of unlimited inspiration…
In between getting inspired and doing a little knitting there is yarntangler-time… When Zidane thinks it is time for some cozy yarntangler-time extraordinare he simply claims his place…
Oh yeah, and the knitting you see in the foreground of the picture is the Pudorosa Neckwarmer by Lia Moya in beige/sand cashmere (sooo soft!). I’m knitting this one for a gift so I really hope it will turn out nice, but more on that note in a later post.
