cardigan sleeves

As promised, photographic proof of progress. I think I need to work on my technique a bit, the colours are a little washed out. Still, the hand-dyed cardigan has sleeves.

It's time to get this blog working again. The main thing preventing me blogging has been lack of digital camera. You can do a bit with a webcam and a phone, but it's not the same. Today I took delivery of a shiny Canon Ixus and soon, promise, there will be photos and posts once more in this somewhat dusty corner of the knitblogosphere.

fake fox finished

fake fox finished, originally uploaded by the pig wot flies.


Pattern: Vegan Fox

Needles: 10mm circs, 6.5mm straights, 5.5mm dpns

Yarns: Duttons Yarn Ltd Fancy that (fringe), Patons Studio Mohair DK (soft plain bits), Stylecraft Eskimo (eyelash).

Notes: Simple, but effective. I think there's a line missing in the pattern. I added a row of knits between rows 2 and 3 of the body section. (Otherwise you would switch which side of the stocking stitch is the right side). I was surprised by how fast it knit up, but that is what happens when you use 10mm needles. Goggly eyes are stuck on with glue.

I've wanted an excuse to knit one of these for ages.

It's the Vegan Fox from Knitty.
