Knitting Update

I have been doing a bit more knitting in the last couple of weeks, I've managed to finish the first sleeve for the pink cardigan and I've also made myself a scarf and a pair of fingerless gloves. The scarf took a couple of hours one evening and the gloves were made today.

The scarf is made from Tivoli Vienna wool, each bobble has a 2" piece of string in between it and the next bobble, you simply knit two stitches into each section with some 4mm-5mm needles, making sure you don't catch the bobble in the stitch. Garter stitch all the way and you end up with an extremely soft and cuddly scarf that everyone will want to stroke!

The gloves are knitted in Debbie Bliss Cashmerino Aran which is a gorgeous soft wool. You only need one 50g ball, so they're cheap to make as well. I used a pattern I found on You have to sign up to a free account, once you're on there, search for a pattern called "Fetching". I had more wool left than the pattern suggested, so I unpicked the cast-off and did an extra 4 rows (including one cable) on the finger end which makes them more comfortable too.


  1. I've just started some fingerless gloves from Ravelry too to use some of the sock yarn I've been accumulating. It's a great resource that site. Yours do look nice and very timely I'm sure!

  2. Is there no end to your talents ?? Definitely "you" colours, and the scarf is so pretty.
