At last, a few more finished thigs for March. I honestly thought that I might not finish anything else this month!
Frist up, a Stitchnerds Green KAL scarf. This is Integrali, a bias knit garter stitch scarf with a small lace border. Very easy to knit, especially when it's larger, as it's mainly garter stitch. The yarn is Wollmeise, from older stash, Boxkranzl.
This is the only outdoors photo we took. The weater was miserable, rain and wind, and MrC was about to run off to his boat! So I took some indoors squashed up on the coffee table!
not that you can see in these photos, but it's shaped like a boomerang. You cast on a few stitches, and then increase on one side, decrewase on the other the other and when you are nearly done (it's a percentage system, so you weigh your yarn) you work the other lace edging. I like that idea, that you finish on an interesting bit!
The second item is a pair of felted clogs for MrC. His previous pair wore out last month. He had taken to wearing his BI irks as slipppers so as not to wear out his socks! It is true, what they say, that wool wears out faster on carpet than wood, as his pair at the obart have outlasted the last two pairs here. I cast these on weeks ago, but put them on the back burner as i found a pair of blue with pink trim felted clogs which I'd knitted last year and hadn't felted.
I usually use Fiber Tredns Felted Clogs, but found antoher pattern on ravelry, Easier Clogs for Wm and Men.
They certainly look great, and I love the yellow inner soles. Let's see how they felt. The construction is different from the FT pattern, and I think they're quicker to knit. If all goes well in felting , these may become the new Gelted Clogs default pattern (especially as FT now aren't selling to European buyers via ravelry, not that I blame them of course, I blame our silly VAT regulations).
As I was taking the bag of feltable yarns back into the bedroom, MrC spotted them and asked if they were all felting yarn, and could he possibly have a look through for future clog colours......
