Knitting & Finishing



Well I have a finish to show and some knitting!! - First the finish, the design is by Ewe&Eye&Friends and its called Brown bunny. I have changed the colour ways (as usual), Its stitched on 32ct hand dyed linen by Polstitches and the colour is called Hot Chocolate and I stitched it using dragonfloss which is a hand-dye by Polstitches and the colour is pearl.



The brown bunny and writing is stitched using DMC. The design had a mixture of stitches. I finished it as a pin keep, it looks a bit bumpy on the picture but it is quite smooth IRL.

The next to show is my knitting - I haven't picked up a pair of knitting needles for a good 10 years or more but I saw this wool and fell in love with it, unfortunately I thought I would have got more stitched than I have but other things keep side tracking me, but I have got one part completed and I have strted knitting a bit more - Can you guess what its is? The blob on the right is a finished knitted bit, not a ball of wool LOL!!!



Vonna and Eva have both said they would like to do a tin exchange with me, both ladies are such wonderful stitchers and finishers I am honoured that they wanted to, so watch this space for the results of our exchanges.

The weather here has been dreadful - really high winds - yesterday a few areas at work were sent home because of it - unfortunately we weren't one of them, but I don't think it would have mattered if we had cos when Mark and I got in yesterday afternoon we had no electricity, it had been off apparantly since lunchtime and came back on again at 5pm, but at least it stayed on when it did come back on again.
The weathermen are reporting that the Lake District will have snow on Sunday and Monday - hope we do then it will feel like winter!!

Hope evreyone has a great weekend!

I really like this design and what a good idea to finish it in this way :-) As for you knitting again.........well, you are such a beautiful knitter I don't know why you ever stopped!! You have skills I can only dream of on the knitting front :-) I shall look forward to what the ball of fluff is going to be ;-) Nice colour wool for a ball of fluff ;-)

Beautiful finish, as usual. As I already told your sister, I've decided not to comment on your finishes from now on: my vocabulary is woefully insufficient to do your finishes justice.
I wonder what the ball of fluff is going to be!

I read about the awful weather in your part of the world. Glad you're safe!

cute little bunny,looking at the knitting I have two ideas -
Knitted Bra or Knitted Ear Muffs to wear when you are stitching, ready for when the cold weather hits this week,seriously though I haven't a clue

Su,
Little Brown Bunny looks so lovely on that fabric and the thread is perfect for it. I love the way you have finished it.Soft mellow colours.
Your knitting looks intriguing. I can see why you fell in love with that yarn. Looks like fairly small needles too, no wonder your progress is not as quick as you would like. Can't wait to see the end result.

Love the brown bunny and might have to invest in that chart myself, it's gorgeous. And such a novel way to finish it off...I can never do stuff as nice as that.

I'm intrigued as to what you're knitting, I love the colour of the wool.

It looks very similar to what Mum knitted and so my guess is that the blob is a hat and on the needles is the companion scarf.

Love the colours.

I love the colours in that wool but what on earth is it?

Wow, you are such a brilliant finisher. I love checking out what you're turning your stitching into. So clever!
