After looking at Yokoo's great Etsy shop, I fell in love with her grey and yellow cowl.
If there wasn't a credit crunch it would be mine. Maybe for my birthday it still can be. But in the meantime I thought I would have a go. So off I went and bought the largest needles John Lewis had.
They're so huge they feel like comedy needles! I could barely hold them. Giant knits seem to be all the rage on the catwalk and I have been seeing some jolly mice giant knit scarfs on the streets of Hoxton. So I embarked on a test mission. It's so rewarding as even the slowest knitter in the world like me can create something like this in an evening! Ace.
After completing this test, I am now ready for attempt number two! I think I might accentuate my rib by doing my tea cosy design and maybe using some slightly smaller needles this time. Then I might try one with a fancy cable.
I still plan to put some buttons on my existing one but it still seems to be stretching out everytime I wear it. It is very warm though.
