Updatey goodness

So here’s what I’ve been working on knit-wise the last week or so:



A crab hat for my sister on her birthday. Knitted from ‘Animal Hats’ by Rachel Henderson. Love this book, I think I’m going to end up knitting most of the hats in it. 



A tea cosy. Well, cup cosy really, since I don’t have a teapot.



The first of (hopefully) many Christmas presents to come – a sock monkey hat. Knitted from ‘Animal Hats’ again, but I was inspired by Misha Collins’ hat:


 The present is for the sister. She introduced me to Supernatural and we’re both Misha fans.

Aaaand I started work on….



A birthday present for my brother who said he wanted a rocket for his birthday. It’s a desk tidy rocket from ‘Tech Knits’ by Sue Culligan. The pattern wanted aran weight yarn and 4mm dpns, but since I’m trying to use up my stash it’s being knitted with dk weight. But I’ve never listened to what a pattern tells me to do anyway. The pen and paper you can see in the picture is me working stuff out to adjust the pattern to the different yarn weight and the jar the knitted piece is going to cover. Fun stuff.

And finally, the first roses have come out in my garden! I feel super-proud, even though it’s nothing to do with me really, and all down to the plant.
