About Me

My photo
Been knitting on and off for about 50 years, sporadically trying to crochet, just bought a lucet. More details about my knitting, crochet and tunisian crochet can be seen at https://www.ravelry.com/people/Rosebark for which you need to be a member, but this is free.

Pentagon coaster

Slightly odd this one. I found instructions to make a Tunisian crochet hexagon coaster and followed it, triangle by triangle, but after five triangles, there was no room for another, so I sewed it up and made a pentagon. This was actually the second attempt, but the first went off in a swap package without being photographed. The same happened with that one too. Hmm...

White diamond pattern cardigan

Oops! I realised it had been a while since I last added a post here and that I had a few things to add, but I didn't realise it had been eight months! I'll try to add one or two things a day for a bit to catch up.

This is obviously the V-neck version of the pink diamond pattern cardigan I did earlier. The yarn used was Keynote Acrylic Nylon, which was given to me by a knitting group friend for the purpose of making things for SCBU. You can tell from the name (if you're old enough) that it is quite old yarn. I think it is good that it has finally been found a use. More items to follow before long...
