I just really love these.
I have not done this type of knitting before but it does seem to look very similar to the cotton reel technique I learned as a child.
Here are some examples I have found today to learn a new technique or even enhance the once lost in time cotton reel adventure, I can still remember doing it and watching the cord appearing at the base of the cotton reel. How many of you remember doing that at school?
I was browsing today for more art work which could be used to personalise my space.
I found these beautiful pieces which would be great in the space in front of my caravan on a trellis or even as a wall hanging. I really do enjoy discovering the art and craftsman ship which is out in there. When I find pieces I like I hope to be able share with others not only to hopefully sell, but also to let people know that the art of using our hands in a creative fashion is still alive and well in the lands. There are many talented people about who have skills and knowledge to help beautify our spaces. If you are not creative but would like pieces of art in your spaces you shop for them. I try to help bring about the uniting of both the artist and the buyer.
I thought these dolls are beautiful and great addition to your collection. I love dolls myself and have a few in Spain which I am hoping to bring over when I sell my house.
Although mine are used as models for the clothes I knit for dolls and teddys.
These are absolutely delightful could not resist sharing with you.
My fellow crafter friend has two delightful baby dolls which are so cute tucked up in their beds in her house. I have a strong affinity with people who still have a touch of child within them as it makes people much more friendly and affectionate. I love my great old ted which is in Spain he is called Albert and I have had him since my first birthday, although he is looking a bit worse for wear as he has travelled with me alot i use him too for knitting clothes for him as his size is about the size of a one year old child. I love to knit and be very creative hence my need to do this blog to help share what I do and what others are doing too.
These two hats were made from Riot wool from King Cole.
two of the wide range they do have. I am a keen supporter of King Cole yarns and was a distributor in Spain. Now back in the UK, finding great places to buy the yarn has become a bit of an obsession. I have and do get some supplies from ESK in Eastbourne, I have even met their Sales Manager the last time I was there. As I had ordered a large quantity to send to Spain for me to sell out there. I have now got to get my supplies back from Spain to use here. I am happy to share what I make and my resources with you.
