Knitted rug.

I subscribe to Big & Little Knitting Projects and in books 39 there is a pattern for a fluffy rug, or as they call it, Cut Loop Rug. It calls for the use of 25 x 50g balls if Wendy Aspire Chunky in Thistle (shade 3249) and 7.5mm long needles.

Thus is their version

I however couldn’t get hold of said yarn, so opted for 8mm 100cm circular needles and 6 x 200g balls of James C. Brett Marble Chunky in what I believe to be dye lot 1576, colour MC40. It’s a blue, green, red type blend and feels supper soft in the part I’ve made so far. It’s a simple 4 row repeat pattern, but boy does it take a while…

Back

This is the back, or the part that would be in the floor.

The top (or front)

The yarn.

It’s supposed to be 60x90cm in size once it’s finished…I wonder if I’ll get that far haha

Sleep crochet

I’m sat working in week 8 of the Scheepjes CAL and I can feel myself nodding off..I can still see and hear as well as respond to anything but I feel so tired I’m basically sleep crocheting haha.

This is how far I have got with this week. I still have to do the outer rounds on all motifs.

Moogly block 3

Update to Moogly CAL page. I have done block 3. Whoohoo!! Lots of front post stitches although they don’t show great in the photo, which us unfortunate as it’s really good in person and super 3D

New page.

I have put up a new page for the Scheepjes 2015 CAL. Some pictures are to be loaded later and I plan on starting the Scheepjes 2014 CAL and the Moogly 2014 CAL as well as 2 others and in good time I will set pages up for those too. 😁

Moogly Block 2

Just finished up my second block for the Moogly CAL. I’m pretty sure there is the same amount of rounds on each block but this one looks so much more cream 🙂 either way its still pretty and I enjoyed making it (except the part where my 2 year old stole the yarn haha).

It still needs blocking and again I’m only going to block to 10″ instead of 12″ so the pattern isn’t so pulled apart. Second block is on the right.

Purple lace diamond toddler dress

I finally did it! I finished the toddler dress I was making. I had to adapt the last row (top row) of the bodice part because no matter what I did, the stitches just wouldn’t fit, even though the previous rows were all correct. I also extended the straps and added extra rows to the bottom to make it longer (as my daughter likes swooshy dresses). It should have a fabric material under layer but I like it as it is.

She just wouldn’t stay still for a decent picture haha

Damn last row!!!

For the love of me, I can’t figure this last line out for the toddler dress I’m making! How irritating! I’ve worked long and hard on it all day and finally get to the last row and nope, the stitches done match or whatever the pattern is talking about at least. I have the right number in the previous row and in the right places but it just won’t go. Guess I’ll just have to put it down and have a break then try again.

US terms

For some reason, I get along with the US terminology far better than I do with the UK terms so please remember this when I comment about what stitches are involved in whatever it is I’m showing. 😄
