1  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Re: My 4th Doctor Scarf Finally Finished! on: September 15, 2014 05:30:01 PM
This is great krissy-poo, I love the tradition of knitting  4th Doctor scarves it's a bit of a knitting staple. My husband made his own back in the day, it's full of holes now (he wasn't the best knitter). After he died I gave it to my youngest daughter and she slept with it every night for the first year after he died to remind her of him. I made this one from a pattern book from the early 1980s that his sister gave me (probably the same one he used)

This is great Naantje and in my favourite colour! You've really got the fit well too. Very flattering!

I like the solid green that you added to the bottom!

Thanks meleriffic, it was out of necessity, I didn't have enough of the mixed colour yarn for the whole garment.
4  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / "Camouflage" Loop-d-Loop yoke vest jumper on: May 12, 2014 06:19:51 AM

I haven't been on Craftster for such a long time, but lurk every now and again.

I'm especially proud of this jumper which came out better than I expected. The pattern is from Teva Durham's "Loop-d-Loop" book, the yoke vest, and I added sleeves by picking up and knitting stitches at the armholes and then knitting in the round with occasional decreases.

The yarn is  the textured King Cole Waves (part wool, part acrylic, part nylon) which I bought lots and lots of in a pound shop a few years ago and didn't know what to do with it. It's really soft and easy to wear, if a little heavyweight.

I'm really pleased with the camouflage effect of the yarn.

Thanks for looking

5  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Remembrance Day Poppy knitting pattern on: September 22, 2012 12:53:41 PM

Hello to all my Craftster friends worldwide, I'd like to share with you all my knitting pattern for Remembrance Day 2012.

It's been a momentous year for us Brits with the Queen's Diamond Jubilee and the London Olympics, and we have another Remembrance Day approaching when we remember the fallen soldiers and civilians in many wars in our recent and past history.

There is a tradition in the UK of wearing poppies during the months of October and November to commemorate those who have fought for the freedoms that we enjoy today. This culminates in a ceremony on the 11th November at 11am when we remain silent for 2 minutes to remember those who lost their lives in historical wars ("the 11th hour on the 11th day of the 11th month" as quoted by Winston Churchill, I think).

In honour of that pledge, I have designed a poppy to raise funds for the Royal British Legion in the UK, a charity supporting the retired and disabled soldiers who have fought in conflicts for the sake of the UK.

Thank you for your time, and an additional thank you from the Royal British Legion.

I agree. This is totally beautiful! Well done. I really want to knit a skirt for my daughter. The colours you have used are lovely.

I'm keen to join a local knitting group. I think that this would be a good project as all my other projects are quite complicated. The endless stocking stitch would be fine while I'm chatting and don't need to pay too much attention. I may drop in some time soon with my progress.

Just great stuff all of it, I particularly like the skully bag, the cool stitching around the edge, and the lining. Just awesome!

Eerie yet stunning! When the image popped up I wasn't expecting anything quite so anatomically correct.

Just superb though.

Welcome to craftster, we're a friendly and supportive bunch here. Keep posting your projects. Did you design that heart yourself? If so and you are prepared to share the pattern either free or paid, there'll be a knitalong for sure.
