Weekly Photo Challenge: My 2012 in Pictures – A Year of Knitting

04 Jan

I’m lost if I’m not creating something – be that writing, cooking, gardening or knitting. Here are some of my knitting projects.

My new project to start off 2013 is to make the Snowman’s Snowdog.

    How about an India inspired piece? (says she still procrastinating about yarns bought at J&S back in May for a Devon inspired free form, but happy to enable a knitting buddy).

      Only just seen this – sorry. That’s an idea. I’ll put my mind to it. Thank you for the thought ๐Ÿ™‚

    Lost for words… all that time,energy and creativity – and then there’s all the rest, the cooking and gardening and photography and blogging, and there’s probably more!!!!

      You may notice though, that everything I knit is very small! I like things I can finish quite quickly!
      Thank you for your lovely comments. ๐Ÿ™‚

    Wow, the circular gallery works well with these pictures! I just love the the made with love thingy, do you remember where you got it – I would love to buy some of these – would use them on the mittens that I knit!

      Hello, I picked them up in a wool shop in Hayle that I go to occasionally. Your wool shop may be able to get them for you or, when I’m next down that way, I could see if they still have them and post you some! They were only 10p each so I’d be very happy to send you a bunch! ๐Ÿ™‚

      Thank you for encouraging me to try the circular gallery – I love it! ๐Ÿ™‚

        Thanks. I will try locally and if I can’t get any I will let you know! Yes, the circular gallery can be stunning sometimes.

    I think all of Britain is thankful your hands remain busy. If you had no way of channeling all that energy I fear you might be a lurking menace. Naw, just pulling your yarn ball. Making and contributing is a worthy pursuit. Something passed down from generation to generation. We seem, however, to be slowing getting away from doing and making shtufffs.

      I think you are right! I know Mr S finds me a challenge if I’m not busy!

      It’s interesting how many people are becoming more interested in making shtuffs! I had some wonderful home made presents this year and I have lots of friends, blogging and real (!) who knit /make, not all of them as old as me by any means. Wish the trend would catch on even more though.

      Happy New Year to you ๐Ÿ™‚

        Perhaps it is quiet revolt by those who wish, yearn, to be of their own making, as ‘making shtufffs’ gives one satisfaction. I hope it is not just a trend primed by nostalgia. If it is a notion with the younger set then that would be a good thing.

      Thank you! It was a real challenge with no pattern, just a photo of the real thing. I used a ball-cock as the base and knitted around it. I’m truly proud of that as it’s the first thing I’ve ever made without a pattern and it was in Kensington Palace as part of the Exhibition! ๐Ÿ™‚

        It truly is brilliant. Even better knowing there was no pattern ๐Ÿ™‚
