I promised to take a picture wearing the pinwheel coat so here it is completed and being worn!!
Pattern Name: Pinwheel Sweater (Adult)
Designer: Shelley Mackie
Pattern Source: Elann.com
Date started: 28/09/09
Date finished: 23/10/09
Yarn: All from stash most now discontinued
Comments: I used a heavier yarn and bigger needles than stated because I wanted a coat rather than a cardigan, certainly something that would keep me warm for the coming winter. I also omitted the yarn overs after the first colour change, for the same reasons. I enjoyed knitting this, even when it got to over 400 stitches! Brilliant stash buster!!!!
Snow ball Scarf
Well, I saw this stuff when I was at Ally Pally in October and walked swiftly by thinking, never, never, never. However, when my local yarn store stocked it, I thought, mmmm. But each time I went in, the stuff (I can't bring myself to call it yarn just yet) kept calling to me. I gave in a bought a ball on Monday. I had a free morning today and one hour later after twisting on 5 stitches, I had a snuggly, warm scarf!! What more can I say?
