My Creative Space - Still here
This is the jumper I am working on at the moment for Liam. It's the same Owlet pattern that I knitted for Noah, in a bigger size. Again I am using Bendigo Luxury, this time in Lake. It is a beautiful colour, and I think it will really suit Liam.
I am knitting with my new Knit Pro Harmony needles, and I must say they are beautiful to knit with. When I knitted Noah's jumper, I used some borrowed, nickel plated needles which are lovely and smooth to work with. Unfortunately, I am allergic to nickel, and knitting with those was never going to work out long-term as I was getting eczema from them. There is still nickel on them, where the joins are, but as I am not handling it all the time, it shouldn't be a problem. I also recently discovered, that these needles are also available in clear acrylic if you are looking for a slightly cheaper option.
I have also found a better way to increase, which is much neater.
Anyway, that's enough about my creative space, what about yours? If you are interested in checking out other people's creative spaces, you should pop over and visit Kirsty at Kootoyoo.
