Knitting Blog

Call something Warp and Woof Knitting, one should include some knitting right?

The Anne Shirley scarf, from Ravelry.  I am a bad Canadian, never having read the Anne of Green Gables series from which this scarf derives its name. This is likely blasphemous, but when I was a kid every time I tried to read one of the books I found Anne to be a bit bland for my tastes. I should take a look again, before the province of PEI has me lynched or something.

Gloves put together from yarn scraps –  from the scarf and some socks. Sweet Georgia fibre hand spun, some Hand Maiden 4 ply cashmere and some Regia sock. Those are scraps to be used. They are much too nice to waste. These could be a gift set perhaps.

And because I am all about the getting rid of plastic bags as much as we can, this handy hemp (green) and hand spun cotton (beige) bag, also a free pattern from Ravelry.  It is called the Grrlfriend Market Bag, easy to make and hopefully handy to use. I haven’t used the hemp yarn before, so we shall see how much it stretches out. This bag may end up carrying only items that won’t slip through but it is kind of funky so far.

The sun is lower in the sky now, even here on the South coast of BC. It makes the leaves glow gold, and there is morning dew on the car when I go “into town.” This is a view from under a tree, out at Buntzen Lake a week or two ago. Just a different perspective.

    Always love to see your projects. What I liked best today are the gloves you made from scraps of wool. So pretty and useful and thrifty. I love thrifty. Great pic of the tree at the end too. Yes, I love the bag and the scarf too.

      Thanks! I kind of like the gloves best too of this batch, they are not my usual colour palate and it all came together on a bit of whim. What a funny hobby to have eh.

    I loved all your knitting this time too. I must get the pattern for the bag from ravelry as I still have the site on my computor. Should have it made in a couple of years. I did finish the little 5 stitch scarf a couple of days ago. I loved the colors of your scarf and gloves, so soft and lovely. Great picture too. Much love
