As I've said before about this pattern, it's older than either of my girls but I love it and will never part with it! This is my new nightie made in a pure cotton which I got in the January sales at Dunelm Mill - cost me £2.49 per metre. Not too shabby for pure cotton, I'd say!
This is a close up to show the sweet floral design. The ribbon doesn't quite go but, hey, it's a nightie. Who cares what colour the ribbon is? Not me!
I made myself another Lady Skater Dress.
Santa Claus brought me this knitted fabric. Who'd have thought that dragonflies could look so lovely?
I've been busy knitting with 4 DPNs (double pointed needles) recently. Guess what I've been knitting? Socks! This is the first one about to decrease for the toes.
I've now only got to finish off the toes and then start on the second sock. I'm using this pattern.
I had bought a 40cm circular needle to see if I preferred using that to the 4 DPNs but I got myself in a bit of a tangle with it. I think it was too long and too short at the same time. Too long to knit round and round easily but too short to be able to make a magic loop like I did with the sheepy hat. I actually quite enjoyed using the 4 DPNs once I got going. I think the last time I knitted socks was for my Knitter's badge at Girl Guides. I'm not going to even think about how long ago that was!! LOL
