I've had this finished for weeks, and finally I get to blog about it! It was originally my June small item, and I finished it sometime during summer. This was also the project I knit on my wedding day, so it has some sentimental signifigance too!
It's a lacey sock yarn scarf. The yarn I used is YarnAddicts Bamboo sock yarn (in colourway Pink goth, which I received in a swap a few years back. The yarn has since been discontinued.)
So, we've got some more space for the site, and I can upload photos again!
The first thing I'll show you is the packet I sent and received for the Ravelry Studio Ghibli swap, or Totoro swap for me, as Totoro is my favourite Ghibli character and I obviously planned my packet around him.
I'm still working on the Finland pictures, but currently I've just been so busy! The bureaucracy and the thank you cards after the wedding, my acting hobby at the local theatre (premiere next month!) as well as work just seem to take up all my time at the moment. So I'll just need to show you something that's been finished for some weeks already... sorry! But I'm sure you'll like this one too.
I'm still working on the perfect cat bed. This is not yet it! But at least it's fluffy and cuddly! I'll give it to the animal shelter for sale later on.
I used odd balls of fluffy yarns, that's all I can say about the yarn. Some I got from the shelter, some I had in my stash. I made the bottom in one piece, like the bottom in Princess Snowball cat bed from Stitch'n'Bitch, and then picked up stitches along the sides. I used 6mm needles.
It still doesn't stand up right, but I keep trying!
I'm taking part in a crazy Finnish KAL called "Kesäyön hullutus", which translates to "summernight's folly"! The idea is to start a new project every day from the 1st June to the 20th of June, and finish all these projects by the end of July! I joined on the 6th, so I have a few less to do, but still... so therefore small projects are the best in this challenge!
I think preemie hats are the perfect small projects one can make. They're easy, quick and very useful (I'll be sending them to charity).
