Unfortunately, you still only get a teaser shot, as it isn't blocked yet. But, the knitting is finished, and it will be blocked in time for the do on Sunday, so I'm happy! I will post more pictures once it is properly finished, but I couldn't not post about it today, could I? *laughs*
Yarn: Mini Mochi in Jungle
Modifications: Followed the instructions to make it a stole rather than scarf
Enjoyment: 2/5 (but that's due to the deadline rather than the pattern I think!)
Would I make again? Maybe, but not for some considerable time!
Now, I feel a little like I'm cheating as this isn't 100% finished, so I have also got something else to share...
It may look like a fuzzy alien egg (to me anyway), but actually it's a Smoothie Hat! For those who don't know, Innocent drinks do a "big knit", where they ask knitters to donate little hats for their smoothie bottles. For each bottle sold with a hat, they donate 25p to Age UK to help make winter warmer for older people who need a little help. I've always thought it was a cute idea, and this year I get to join in *smiles*
So, my first smoothie hat. I will be making plenty more, they're a nice quick project when you need some finished object gratification ;) As I don't have a smoothie bottle handy, I had to pose it on a ribena bottle, but at least the colours coordinate *laughs*
Pattern: Big Knit Pattern Guide
Yarn: Stylecraft Raffia
Modifications: Made it garter stitch, it looks cute in this yarn
Enjoyment: 4/5 so quick and satisfying!
Would I make again? I'll definitely be making more
