Despite my best intentions I completely forgot to post the credits for those whose patterns I used for the Christmas presents that I posted on my last blog. Very sorry for that omission to all concerned.
The three cornered hat is from a free pattern on Woolywormhead's site. It's a very quick and simple knit, but the end result is good. Ro was so impressed with the one I knitted that she immediately knitted one for herself. Now two more people know the "two needle crochet cast off" who didn't before. Many thanks!
The hot water bottle cover was inspired by the BAWK from Yarnagogo, but with a couple of adaptations of my own from the pattern in Simply Knitting. I decided NOT to add the beads as an embellishment which featured on the Simply Knitting hot water bottle cover.
BEADS? on a hottle cover? Who wants to hug that????? crazy people on that Simply Knitting mag, no?
The Moebius scarf was knitted from a free pattern on this site. This is so effective but very simple once you get going. All the way through the cast on and first few rounds you can't actually believe that it's going to work, but hey presto. There it is at the end.
The finger scarf technique was shown to me by Ashley Selman at the wool shop in Addingham where I bought the Adriafil yarns for it. The bag which I knitted to match it was very loosely based on the bag in the January issue of Simply Knitting, but I mostly made it up as I went along.
The Clapotis for Ann, you all know about, pattern by Kate Gilbert featured on Knitty. Known and loved throughout the knitting world. And the bag for Ro was adapted from a pattern in Simply Knitting which was taken from Emma King's "25 Bags to knit".
Once again apologies to all concerned for my failure to post these credits on my original post.
Happy New Year to all.
