Finished Object Friday..at last!
I meant to get some proper photos of me and my Hitch Hiker before today, given that this is my first ever FO Friday but I got carried away sewing then it got dark so the best I have is this which is pretty poor to be fair!!
As with all of the things I make for me, Lou decided that I had actually made it for her and claimed it the other day, don't worry though, I have reclaimed it!
I still haven't blocked it. I'm not really sure where I could pin it out to dry so I have left it for now. I'm sure it won't be long before it is cold enough to wear it.
The yarn is Krafty Koala Sparkle Sock in a fab colourway for this time of year. It reminds me of brambles and damson....
If you want to be inspired to finish a few of your projects off, pop over to Tami's blog here.
Look what I made, among other things, today....
A new bag! When I got back from my holidays, I keep seeing messages about these mad, little hexagon shaped puffs that people were knitting to make into quilts. To start with I thought they were little toys but I soon found out that you sewed them all together to make a wonderful, warm quilt, using your left-over sock yarn. Fab idea because people who knit (and finish) socks, always end up with scraps of sock yarn. Clearly I wouldn't know this because, look, it's the sock that I have been knitting for years featuring in another bag photo....
This bag is about as tall as my sock knitting bags but it has a bigger, hexagonal bottom to make a dumpy bag. Perfect for all of your little hexi-puffs as well as socks, hats, scarves, shawls, the list goes on!
