This week, apart from working a little bit on the blanket, I have made some smaller things that were out of my plan:
For some mindless knitting, as a by-product of some work-related frustrations, I have made these fishes for my kids to play with at bath time. Pattern from Rhonda White’s website.
I also have done this bottle cover yesterday. I have another, larger bottle that can be used as a vase, and I plan on crocheting a cover for it, too. This yarn has finally found it’s destiny. It is a ball of linen yarn that I bought in 1998 during my holidays in Lithuania. It has traveled all around Europe with me since then, waiting for a perfect project.
I also started working on a new dress from my recycled yarn (it is cotton/linen mix by the way). After a few trials I think I have figured out the shaping of the first round. I am now letting it sit, before I venture into extending that into a full yoke.
