This year I took part in the Ravellenics again and had an extremely easy event this year.
We, Knitting Madness Team, took part in the event - Socks and Felting.
We all had the choice of one of 4 Drops Slipper patterns that we could knit and then Felt.
My choice was this pattern:
These looked so cute so I wanted to try my hand at making them.
This is them pre-felting
After the first wash - still huge.
I must honestly say that I do have mixed feelings about these finished slippers!
They turned out to be extra big, so I washed them again.
After second wash and adorned with a pompom they look a lot nicer and fit a lot better :)
Onto some other FOs :)
I recently did another Craftsy Course - Mittens and Gloves Galore.
Now I know you may know that I have created a couple of mitten patterns in the past, so you may be asking yourself why I would want to do this course if I can already knit mittens?
Well, it is pretty simple, you can never learn enough, yes I have my own techniques to knitting mittens, but my technique is definitely not the only one and I would like to try other peoples ways of working through a glove/mitten pattern.
I loved this course, it offers so much to any knitter looking to knit some gloves.
You get a 5-in-1 pattern which helps you to create unlimited possibilities in the glove department, from fingerless mitts, to fingered gloves it is all there for you and the instructor Marly Bird is great! She is friendly and pleasant to listen to.
Using Marly's instructions I created a wonderful warm set of gloves for Jas which was great and just in time for the sudden cold winter we have been experiencing as of late.
Marly offers another couple of glove pattern options which I will be making soon and will share with you when completed :)
And so my Craftsy Love Relationship continues making this class number 13 - ooooh boy!
How many Craftsy Courses have you, or are you attending at the moment?
What FOs are you finished with this week?
Have a great weekend, and a happy Valentines Day to all.
