The Small Things


Sometimes knitting just goes on and on. No matter how many stitches you knit, how many rows you complete, still it continues. Indeed, sometimes it never ends.

But occasionally there are teeny things, quick and easy things, satisfying smallish knits that reveal the finish line within the first few centimetres. Just what the doctor ordered during these madcap days of late.

I'm working on some Fetching mitts in brightest orange, remembering how much I love cables and wondering why I shy away from socks when a mitt is just a sock for a hand, let's face it. These are for a gift, and with another half hour's work this evening, I should have a pair ready to wrap.

I'm still going on my cowl, remembering how much I don't love moss stitch. Well, I love it to look at, just don't love to do it. Ah, well. Round and round we go, two balls of wool in and only one to go.

And perhaps it's a bit late now, but here's the trio of bunnies made ready just in time for Easter morning. I used leftover yarn from this vest and that cardigan, and this is the pattern. The facial expressions are all their own.




Settling in to read Anni Daulter's new book, Naturally Fun Parties for Kids, which arrived in the post today all shiny and new. I'll be reviewing it here in a couple of weeks, which is quite exciting, don't you think?

Joining in with Ginny's Yarn Along.

  4. Love love love the bunnies. You are so right--mitts are just socks for hands, but I too shy away from socks. It's those tiny needles that put me off.

  6. Those bunnies are adorable :). I am the same way about moss stitch... I love the way it looks, but knitting it is a pain!

  10. There are some projects that you seem to knit *forever* and you need some short quick things to break up the endless rows. LOVE those little bunny tails. :)

  15. Love those quirky expressions on the bunnies and their tails! So funny. I agree about the moss stitch - love love the look of it, but dislike knitting it in large doses - at least your cowl is small. Madcap! Now that is a good adjective to describe my days of late too.
