3  Stripy blue elephant! (image heavy) in Knitting: Completed Projects by knitwitUK on: February 25, 2008 01:06:10 PM
I saw this pattern on a previous thread and couldnt resist!


One of my friends at work just had a baby boy so it was a perfect excuse to knit this little ele! Hope you like him  Smiley

I couldn't get the hang of the crochet ears, so I made up some knitted ones! I will post the pattern for the ears if anyone would like it!

I am going to sew him some eyes tonight (not sure what colour yet - what do you think?) and will give him away tomoro

4  New look tunic 6677 Im confused! in Clothing: Discussion and Questions by knitwitUK on: January 09, 2008 12:39:30 PM
Hi! Ive just bought the New look 6677 pattern for a tunic top but im totally confused about which size to make! Can anyone help?

I measured around the largest part of my bust and this is 40". If I look at the pattern it says that for 40" bust the finished garment is 45 1/2 " bust. Won't this be a bit too baggy?

the pattern details can be viewed here:


Any help much appreciated as this is the first time I have used a pattern

ok, i finally finished an arm! It looks a a bit short, but its supposed to be cropped so I guess its right Smiley

Cast on for the second arm last night, so hopefully finish that one this weekend. As long as I dont get distracted buy the tv that is!

Then I just got to start the side that went wrong again Sad ....

How you getting on littlebluegirl?

Hi Littlebluegirl

Here are some pictures of my progress so far:

The Back:

right front:

Left front in progress:

Just looked at my previous post and I was getting my rights mixed up with my lefts! The side I am going to redo is the right side as there is this mistake ( not sure how I did it, but it makes a little hole!):

Ive not bought the mag for a coupleof months cos Ive told myself that I have to finish other projects before i get tempted by any more Smiley

Anyway, must go and get on with this cardi while my other half watches Spooks

P.s Thanks for the kind comments about my reindeer! I adapted the horse from a farmyard toy scene in a previous issue of the magazine and added felt antlers and a pom pom nose. My boyfriend thought I was mad making that last year but he still put Rudolph out again this year!

7  Festive cheer cardi from Simply knitting in Knitalongs by knitwitUK on: December 08, 2007 01:18:23 AM
Is anyone else knitting the Festive Cheer cardi from the November issue of Simply Knitting? ( see piccie).  I saw a similar cardi in a shop for nearly 40 so when I saw this pattern I thought id have a try. I am using the inexpensive Stylecraft Special DK wool in a Dark brown chocolate colour. The yarn cost 4.50

Im not very good at finishing projects so am really hoping there is someone else knitting this to motivate me!

8  Bonnet from October simply knitting in Knitting: Completed Projects by knitwitUK on: September 26, 2007 01:37:23 PM
Being a preemie baby myself 30 years ago ive always wanted to knit for my local neonatal unit but so far my hats have never turned out quite right and ive been too embarassed to send anything in!

However I saw the bonnet pattern in this month's Simply knitting (October) and thought id give it a go Smiley

I used Dk wool and 4mm needles rather than 4ply and 2.5 needles so it is bigger than the pattern but still smaller than the average baby size. I think my next one will be a blue and white stripe without the crochet edging for a boy Smiley Great way to stash bust and help out the local hospital!

9  Surfy summer skirt! in Clothing: Completed Projects: General by knitwitUK on: June 24, 2007 12:56:25 PM
I've just finished my first sewed item - a summer surfy skirt! My mother in law gave  me an old hand driven sewing machine so I thought Id have a go making some clothes! I used the tute for an aline skirt in the book "Yeah I made it myself""I had to hand sew the zipper though as its hard to sew in straight linws ith one hadn to feed it!
The skirts not perfect, but it fits! Please excuse my wobbly tummy and the mismatching tshirt!

Thought i'd share pictures of my yarn now it is dry and with a test swatch! I'm really pleased with it for a first attempt  Smiley

I made some more with lime and strawberry kiwi this moning - its come out a bit neon pink and green so im a bit dubious! However, hopefully it will dry a bit paler!
