I've changed my sewing stitches for knitting stitches just for a moment. In December I packed away my sewing machine, and transformed our dinning room back into a place to eat rather than my personal sewing space!
Since we have come back from Christmas holidays my husband has turned our dinning room into his temporary study so the sewing machines are still packed away. Instead the knitting needles have been busy. Even though it is summer I will be ready for winter when it gets here.
My knitting garment of choice - arm warmers. My first pair was a lovely Raspberry colour yarn with a single cable, which are more wrist warmers than arm warmers.
Stitch Nation pattern, but I can never resist changing a pattern for my own personal style, so these aren't true to pattern but the finished product is just as I wanted.
I'm now half way through a third pair - this time I switched to double pointed needles (DPN) in a double knit, winter white yarn. Here is the beginning of the right hand.... I've just completed the 4 rounds of ribbing and first cable round.
