I have been playing about with this birthday present I had from my mum-in-law, a knifty knitter! It is basically a small knitting loom, and you can make all sorts of things with looms, like hats, socks, scarves and so on. Its a bit like the french knitting you may remember from childhood using a cotton reel with nails in, but with more pegs.
I do have difficulty maintaning concentration with crafts involving yarn, so this is good as it is for small projects.
talking of small projects, may I present the knitted bangle ta da!
Made from gorgeous local welsh Colinette yarn, But I want to make some more of these using this 100% wool yarn (the other is 50% cotton/50% wool mix) and then felt them, I think they will be fab!!
