Knitting Again...

I seem to have developed a thing for cable recently, I made 4 cable scarves for Christmas,I've made a start on a big cable cushion for the lounge and I also started making smaller cable squares to sew together to make a different cushion (but this got left by the wayside a few weeks ago).

I will go back to this I promise.

Aside from this lot I had some purple wool left over from that awful knitted purse so I knitted myself a little phone sock. I’m quite proud of this beauty as I made the pattern up as I went along, it’s just moss stitch with a cable in the middle and a wide rib at the top, but to me it was a small triumph!

Oh and whilst knitting in the kitchen I got my hands on some cocktail sticks and made some miniature knitting. I added some beads to the end of the cut off sticks and ran up a few little rows.





I once made a smaller set but I can’t find it, I used to have a 12th scale dolls house and the poor house was damaged beyond repair but I did salvage all of the interiors and bits and bobs I had and bits I had made, however the tiny knitting must not have made it! I will have to show you some of my miniature bits and bobs sometime.

Oh I LOVE things in miniature--that is too cute! And your phone sock is the most delightful shade of purple (and I'm not really a purple person). I love the stitch you used (moss stitch is my favorite).

You really have got cabling down to a fine art. Love your phone sock and the little knitting is great - might have to make something like that for my dolls house.

Alex said...

Oh my god that is SO SWEET!

Be honest with me, is cabling hard to manage? I knitted some wristwarmers at the weekend and am v. impressed with myself for managing it. I'd love to have a crack at cable knit stuff but I'm not exactly talented so if it's hard I'll be stuffed!

Love all your knitty makes, but that miniature knitting is just wonderful. Would you consider making me a couple for the bears please, pretty please (I would pay of course!) They would make great accessories! Would love to see your miniature bits and bobs! ;-) xx

Your knitting is gorgeous - you are so talented! Love the miniature knitting set, would you mind if I steal this idea to use on a card for my mum (who is a fab knitter). Would you be able to share the patterns you used for your squares or cushion.

Well done and keep up the good work.
