Knitting in The Round

I have taken the next step in my circular knitting journey and have learned to knit in the round on one circular.  It was very easy in my opinion if not a little cumbersome but so are DPNs!
I have cast on a children's finger less glove.  The pattern was so kindly provided by Kiwi Yarns.
Have a great day, Analisa xx

A Walking Dead KAL

I have joined the Walkers on this new KAL it can be followed on Instagram under #zombievixenkal2013.  The pattern is a free download  on Ravelry which can be found here.

This is my progress so far...

I'm using a beautiful new yarn hand dyed by my friend here in Dubai called Dubai Knits.  I am using her squishy, Tealicious colorway, yarn.

you can join the fun on Ravelry as well for the KAL.
Bye for now, Analisa. xx

New Techniques.......

I saw these two patterns on Ravelry and the really piqued my interest.  I didn't have any intention to make anything from them but had the need to learn something new.

This first one is called Ten Stitch Zig Zag it is a free Ravelry download here
I had a lot of lace weight Cashmere so I made this scarf.  Very easy to read and an interesting stitch.

From the same author I then proceeded to the square ten stitch that can be found here

If your really feeling adventurous you can try the round one found here
Great day to you all. Analisa xx

A finish!

This little Granny Baby blanket is finally finished. What do you think?
Here is the edging up close.
I really love how it turned out and it 100% cotton so very breathable in the warmer months.
Have a great Day. Analisa xx
