Hello and welcome to my first FO Friday!
I have two items for you, one of them being a WIP from Wednesday!
First up, my ‘A Loved Thing’ by Caitlin ffrench. I found this pattern free on Ravelry.
I used yarn I picked up for $2 a skein at a local cheap shop. I was stunned to find three skeins of a what looked like vintage Patons Husky 100% wool 12 ply yarn just sitting there. They were all the same dye lot number so I snatched them up.
The colour is coming out pretty true in the pictures. Probably more so in the first picture. It didn’t take much time at all to knit up and is a lovely lace pattern. I particularly like the way the two horizontal and vertical lines veer off into a triangle on each side. 🙂
It’s a little small for me to wear sadly. The 12 ply bulky yarn makes it too stiff to drape easily too so I’m a little bummed about that. I do have some yarn left so I’m thinking of unpicking the bind off and continue the ribbed pattern to use up the yarn and make it a bit bigger. See my Ravelry notes here.
Next up is my Made-by-Rae Lickety Split bag I blogged in my WIP post on Wednesday.
I love this outside fabric so much! This is the second Lickety Split bag I’ve made so the construction was fairly straight forward. It takes a lot of edge stitching around the handles and top of the bag and I ran out of the nice silver thread I had for it so I had to do it in a darker contrast thread. Oh well, luckily my edge stitching is pretty good so its not such a big deal.
What’s everyone else making? I’d love to hear. 🙂
