Knitting News

 

I am half way done with my gnome making! I want to make eight total and I started number FIVE two days ago. The pattern calls for two strands of fingering so I substituted worsted weight on size five double pointed needles.

What I am enjoying the most is blitzing through half skeins of worsted weight wool that I've saved from previous projects along with color coordinating my gnomes. 

(In the background are two pilgrims that my sister made for me a few years ago).

What are you working on this week?

  4. Love them. How tall are they? I normally make mine using 1 strand of fingering. Is that possible with this pattern? Or is it too fiddly? How nice to turn bits and bobs of yarn into something so cute.

  5. What a lovely collection of gnomes!! I like all the colors you are using and to think you only have 4 more to go!! I'm back to knitting socks, but I do have a thing or two otherwise that I'd like to cast on...time will tell.

    1. depending how busy I am during the day and what I need to do with 'life' I can do one in two days at the fastest and sometimes it takes three-four days if I'm busy.
