Danni and Charlie do craft

Two ladies and a whole lotta wool

Free-style snood in moss stitch

It’s been far too long since I posted, I think it’s partly travelling, partly starting a new job and partly Christmas…excuses aside, I have finally finished a project! And, it’s a snood that I can actually wear. Result.

I’m often trying freestyle knitting – just sort of grabbing some wool and needles, and just starting something…this invariably goes wrong.

I had started knitting with this chunky purple wool on my size 6 circular needles. When it knitted up so densely that it held itself up, I thought better of the needle size.

So this is knitted up on size 12 needles in chunky purple:

I’m really pleased with the end product – I cast on 23 stitches and knitted the entire thing in moss stitch, sewing up the ends when I was happy with the length.

Next up I’m going to try something from a brand new purchase of mine – and I have some rather beautiful angora to use on these:

Excited about knitting from this book, and as you can see from the photo there is plenty of colour work in these patterns!
