I am feeling quite accomplished this month, I have spun the best yarn I have ever done, I posted about that here, I also have three, yes three finished WIPs in February:
First of the needles (was the last WIP I started) was my Lapsang hat. I cast this on at the same time as Mrs. ID, she has the same hat now but in different yarn. It was a joint decision to make these ready for Edinburgh Yarn Festival. The hat is a Clare Devine Pattern and I cast it on using Eden Cottage Yarn Alpaca Chunky which I liberated from my stash. The pattern was so simple the only issue I had was playing yarn chicken towards the end, I think I only had a about 60cm of yarn left!
second of the needles were my lovely Rye Socks by Tin Can Knits. I wrote about them in February here. I was chuffed to bits to finally have a pair of socks of the needles.
Third of the needle was another Tin Can Knits Pattern, The Waffle Blanket from 9 months of knitting. The blanket is for my Friends new born baby. It was only just off the needles in February and the baby was just born last week. I used Stylecraft Aran for this project and it produced such a lovely fabric.The pattern only used 2 and half balls. I did try two other patterns before I settled on this one and each one I just didn't like or the pattern didn't work the way I had anticipated. I was happy with the Tin Can Knits pattern though as it just worked up so quickly and looks really affective.
