my thoughts on all sorts of creative things

Archive for the ‘Knitting’ Category


I recently made this green scarf for my grandson.
I also made a scarf for myself using multi-coloured wool.



Last month I attended two workshops. One about creative French knitting, demonstrated by a student who is doing a Master’s degree in Design.
The second workshop was about Islamic art and simple printing.


Me and another woman who comes to my workshop knitted and crochet these poppies and sent it to Swale’s Kent 10,000 Poppy Appeal 2018.


I bought this lovely 2-in-1 dolly from a craft fair two years ago. Now, when she visits, my granddaughter enjoys playing with her.


Knitted blanket

In my last post I mentioned my colleague, who is partially blind. Last week she asked me if I can mend this blanket, which is full of holes. This blanket belongs to her father – he is 90 years old and still uses it. His grandmother made it to for him!! I took it home and I stitched all the holes and the seams. I looked at the knitting and the pattern his grandmother used. It was mitered knitting squares. The wool is so soft and all made from the same kind of wool. It is seven by ten squares, each square around measures around 5 inches. Then she knitted the stripes around it.



My colleague, who is partially blind, knitted these squares and I helped her by stitching them together to make this blanket. This is her fifth one. I have blogged about her other blankets in Nov 2014, Nov 2016 and Dec 2016.


I finished knitting this scarf for myself.
