Rooted, Leafed And Done.


Yay! Go me, all finished...
Well, anyway ahem! I did go with the cro-shay and ended up doing 3 rounds of Dc/Sc(usa) on the sleeves and 5 rounds for the hem. I do like it but it needs blocking because it keeps curling up slightly st the bottom. I also knit 3 extra rounds using the 5mm needle before casting off, I don't actually know why, it bears no significance - I just did!
And they're not poofy (I didn't want poofy at all).

I just wish I could capture the colour real life it's a nice leafy,sagey green, green iyswim...

Going Back To My Roots...


Just adding todays progress...I practised a crocheted neckline (I know I haven't finished but when I found out I was going to be picking up stitches - ugh!).
Anyway I like it ;), so i'm thinking of doing the same for the bottom and the sleeves....may aswell go with it eh? lol.

I'm also wishing i'd remembered it was Star Wars Day...

This weekend i've most been...

...making things ;)

I do love having Mondays off!
:D...So far i've made one Elfine socklet in Yarn Yards bonny #pick your own (well ok this is a tad a lie, cos I already had this one made but will get the other finished tomorrow - hopefully) I cast on for Rusted Root and have just got the sleeves divided today...and then I felt the need for a FO.
So...I knit up some leaves in Colinette Parisienne and some left over sock yarn. I decided to do 3 leaves in graduationg sizes and then I sewed them together in the shape of a leaf lol (I was having a creative moment)
I think it will end up as a brooch or something.
Whilst I was rootling for the little shiny button, I found a few beads so I also made some stitchmarkers. the beads are semi precious gem stone - moonstone, malachite, haematite and amethyst.

Right, i'm off in the garden now for a quick tipple in the last remaning rays of evening sun....I might have to take a few progress shots of the garden whilst i'm at it :D
