Latest project - 4 months in the making

Post by kated » 22 Jul 2011, 17:05

The design is not easily visible here - it's meant to be seashells. It was a true magnum opus and taught me a lot as there were techniques involved which I had never tackled before. Including knitting on circular needles (at one point I had 450 stitches!) and attaching front to back by knitting instead of sewing.

Chris

love me, love my 4 dogs, 3 cats, over 100 chickens (but don't tell OH) and 7 sheep - oops, almost forgot the 2 tanks of fish!

I live in my own little world but it's ok - they know me here!
