The last entry about my "favourite makes" is about knitting. Now I am even newer to knitting than to crochet. But a few years ago, after having seen a lovely cable knit cushion with a hefty price tag, I decided to make one myself. The result being a dreamy creamy cushion for a fraction of the price.
After having finished my first cable knit cushion I thought it would be the last one. But oh, no. I had to make another one, grey this time. And it did not stop, as a bit later I just had to make a pink one too. By the way, one of the most often asked questions here in my blog is for the cable knit cushion pattern. Here can one (of sorts) be found.
For a lover of blankets, it was just a matter of time before I made an attempt at knitting one. But my first attempt was not just knitted, as the grey blanket is in fact a combination of both knitted and crochet squares. But the knitted ones are definitely in majority. One of my most favourite projects to date.
But of course it did not stop there. I just had to give the knitted squares another go. More colourful this time. And one that is being used every day during these cold winter days.
My love for garter just grew stronger, and last summer I made a garter stitch cushion that has become a firm favourite. Easy peasy with the best of results.
Last autumn I started knitting dishcloth, and quite a few was made (perfect Christmas pressie for family and friends). A lovely way to use up cotton yarn left over from larger projects.
But I could not quite give up on cable knitting either, and two more cushions were made last autumn. In lovely kashmir alpaca wool.
This is it, my friends, for my "favourite makes" series (little did I know that they would indeed turn into a "series")! Thanks for being such lovely, patient readers.
