Seen along the Vancouver Seawall at False Creek, March 23, 2012
This was taken on March 19, 2012, for all intensive purposes it is supposed to be spring, well a few days short of the big day but come on, snow…..seriously. I am happy to report that it has stopped snowing, the sun has peaked out and of course it has rained. Typical Vancouver weather.
For a long time I have wanted to put crocheted borders on something. I have looked at doing pillowcases, tablecloths, and kitchen towels.
I got the towels from Walmart for $1.00, wanted inexpensive ones to practice on. I have to Crochet Thread from Michael’s to put the border on, I think I will get red as there is red in both towels. I thought this would be an easy way to ease into doing crochet borders, if it messes up the towels, I haven’t put too much into it.
I am still working on Isak’s socks, ready to pick up the heel stitches on the first sock. I am liking how colorful they are, I think he likes them as well. I am waiting on a second 2.75 Knit Picks circular needle so I can work two socks at the same time.
I have finished knitting my first pair of socks. I was happy to cast off the last stitch and put them on my feet. I immediately started making another pair for my son.
Made from Regia Yarn, this striping pattern is visually pleasing to me. I am a colourful person and I like the brightness of the colours, Isak is looking forward to me finishing.
I want to make these wrist warmers featured in Mollie Makes, I need to make these wrist warmers. I am unable to find the yarns people are using to make them. Some people have used Circulo Clea #5, no where to be found in Canada. I know it can be purchased off Ebay and a yarn shop in the UK, although with the exchange, becomes quite expensive. I will be searching around for a suitable substitute.
