Haven't been very good at getting stuff finished.....but I do have a lot of things started; they're just simmering you know;)
And because I haven't got that much finished, I thought I may as well post pictures of accessories as well so it looks like I've actually achieved more (just cheering myself up, I know).
Second: a paper bead necklace made from origami paper a Japanese friend gave me and a flower calendar page from an outdated calendar. Button was salvaged from an old shirt and thread was given to me by my boyfriend's grandmother.
Third: this is actually not for me. It's for my sister who requested something to cover her second-degree burns on her right hand (happened recently, poor thing). Obviously had to make a pair: not just the one mitten. I photographed my left hand as I had to hold the camera, somehow (and I'm right-handed).
Reasons for mittens: my sister thinks her burns look awful (which I don't) and her skin is still very sensitive so I therefore made them out of cashmere yarn (light beige) and silk yarn (dark beige). Both yarns were left-overs from my stash... better mail them over to her, now.
Well, that's it for now. Have actually knitted more than this but I need to cut thread ends and the likes. I have mended a tonne of clothes lately; #good on me#; but I guess they don't count as refashions.
Speaking of mending clothes; I have two requests:
1. does anyone know of an easy trouser tutorial/pattern? I have mended friction holes on my pants 5 times now and I think the fabric is getting so thin it will rip straight through to my "derrière" shortly.
2. how do you mend stupid moth holes in a beautiful knitted blanket that took you forever to knit? (I don't think I have any of that yarn left):
Otherwise I'm planning on making a quilted blanket for a friend who's having her baby in two months' time. Better wish me luck as I've never attempted the likes.
All the best to everyone and thanks for reading my ramblings:)
