Quilted patchwork blanket for my niece. Most of the fabric is Amy Butler 'Soul Blossoms' with some plain dye cotton again from Abakans in Manchester.
Used some generic cotton wadding for the inner quilt sandwich.
Admire my nice label 'Ripped Up & ReSewn by Miss Wigglesworth'.
Lace 'Gathering' scarf in Rowan Kidsilk Haze with little black glass beads.
The pattern is in 'Little luxury Knits' by Rowan and only takes 1 ball of Kidsilk Haze, a perfect gift.
Apart from putting the beads on this was a fairly easy knit. It is on 5mm needles so grows quickly but does require some concentration pattern wise - not one to take to knit club!
I have been waiting till after Christmas to post gifts I made up on the blog just in case the recipient had a look on here (however unlikely).
So here are some little reversible knitting bags for two new knitters. They will just fit an A4 pattern in them along with a ball of wool and a set of needles.
I gave the gifts as little starter kits with great success.
Fabrics are a mix of Amy Butler and some random cotton I got from Abakans in Manchester.
