Autumn Knitting

Now ladies, you must remember I am a bit limited with my yarn choices at the mo, due to' the challenge'. That said, I've had a few lovely finds from the boot.I found this a few weeks ago


I've got about 10 balls for £2.50, bargain!!I decided to knit a bag, really hard to get a good photo of it though! I finished it with a knitted flower and then I stitched a metal rose into the centre. This was from a bracelet that I took apart (bought from the boot of course!)


I knitted in moss stitch and the yarn was knitted in double so it has a lovely texture.


I also got this quite a while ago

It's a bit like candyfloss, don't ya think?'Not sure what to knit with it yet, I'll have to ponder on this a bit longer!I do have quite a bit of yarn in the loft too, it all needs a good sort out, I shall save that job for a rainy day I think!

Incredibly lovely! One of the things that is putting me off learning to knit (apart from being bad with numbers) is the cost of wool. Even off the Challenge, I never wanted to go out and buy it new. So it's wonderful to see what you've done with boot sale wool!

I love the flower you've added to the bag - a really clever touch. Now, I think I have some of that sort of fluffy yarn (from the 1980s!) at the back of my stash - maybe I can do something with it after all!

I've just started picking up knitting again; trying to get the hang of it. I love knitting wooly scarves in the autumn and winter!
