Another finished project to share with you today!
This one was started ages ago, half knitted, and the left lying about. Not because I didn't like it, because it is a really beautiful pattern. It was a little challenging for me, although I have been knitting for a long time I have only ever knit 1 thing in the round before. And it was 1 sock. I hated it so much I never even made the other one! But I didn't stop because it was hard, I was really getting into it, but something distracted me. Can't remember what, it could have been so many things! So a couple of weeks ago I whipped it out and finished it off, just like that! (I'm totally lying - I had loads of problems, couldn't remember how to knit in the round!! There were bad words.)
They had a little delay because they needed buttons, which I purchased at the Festival of Quilts :)
Buttons are now all sewn on, and they look beautiful!
A certain 13 year-old is beginning to show an interest in photography (excellent as I am RUBBISH at it!) so I asked her to take these photos for me, and I modelled!!!

The pattern, called Grace was written by the fabulous Julie at button-button and can be found here on Ravelry. I used Artesano Alpaca 4Ply in beautiful soft pink, I think it is called sweet pea.
Another tick on the list! I'm off to find something else to finish...


  1. Wow - gorgeous FO, and what lovely buttons! This is still in my queue, awaiting the perfect yarn...

  2. They are beautiful, well,worth the effort. I'm not a knitter but seeing things like these makes me wish I was.

  3. Ooooh, these are gorgeous! Good job you did finish them, would have been a shame to leave them abonded!

  4. How lovely! They look complicated-nice choice on the buttons.

  5. Such a beautiful job - I can't get over how much I love your yarn choice on these! Now I want to knit more of them. :)
