I wanted to make the pippi cable tunic for my niece.as I have made earlier but of a larger size .I knitted the sleeves with cable pattern and knitted the front bodice halfway through using cable pattern .and as I took out wool from the second packet,l realized it was if slightly different shade .I thought for some time and then decided to knit the bodice using two colors using Chevron pattern.
Wanted to do some Tunisian crochet project in color.so I thought of knitting a cushion cover.firdt I knitted a swatch.bottom is the waffle stitch and then I knitted TSS. Waffle stitch fabric is thicker and it also has more width for same no of stitches.l am thinking to knit it in round new new ideas coming to confuse me even more.
From net got the idea of making Tunisian crochet Hook from pencil and knitted a swatch with tss.the second one I made from icecream stick and is double sided but it snags on wool I painted it with clear nailpolish but the problem was still there.i think I have to discard it. But the pencil one is ok.
I started a very ambitious project of brioche knitted scarf . The knitting speed is very slow.snd is also consuming lot of wool.a nd also not getting right combination.
Was practising aari work with single strand of silk thread. It was very fine and it took a lot of time to embroider a leaf .tht read also got entangled with hook and got fuzzy.
But needle painting with tambour needle on other blogs look so intimidating that I want to try it again and again. For that fine work one may have to have the proper frame and needle also to achieve that so fisticuffs. Better luck next time .may be with two strands.
