30 Day Knitting Challenge – Days 22-23

Two for one today – buy one, get one free!

Day 22: Have you ever stricken someone off your to-knit-for list because they didn’t appreciate/take care of your last knitted gift to them?

This hasn’t as yet happened to me – luckily everyone has seemed to like what I have made for them, but I have stopped part-way through making something when the person did something to annoy me!  Luckily they made up for it and got the item in the end!

Day 23: If you had the supplies (and patience) for it, what project would you start today?

It’s not so much the supplies nor the patience, but the time to do something that I find lacking!  I would love to make a lacy shawl, but as yet I haven’t as yet tried to knit one, I have made a few crochet ones though…

30 Day Knitting Challenge – Days 2 & 3

I have combined the questions for Day 2 and Day 3 as I answered them both on Day 2…

Day 2: What is currently on your needles?

Day 3: Do you have any other WIPs (works in progress)?

I have loads of crochet projects on the go at the moment, but in terms of knitting projects, I have three on the go – one of which I can’t tell you about (ssh!  it’s a secret!)

As for the other two – firstly I am using this gorgeous Debbie Bliss Angel mohair/silk mix to make a lacy scarf – using one large and one small needle (I’m using a 3 1/4mm and a 5mm needle) – Mum and I saw the idea in John Lewis last Christmas and we have both given it a go, although I’m a much slower knitter!

Secondly – which I recently posted about – I have been making this half-moon stitch scarf for my brother for what feels like forever (and I’m barely halfway through)…  but the Katia Basic Merino Flash is a joy to work with.

As I have so many crochet designs on the go right now, this is the sum total of my knittyness at the moment!
