Another collection of knitted makes thanks to one of my magazines. (I love them) They didn’t all come from the same one though but I liked them all and gave them a go and now my Christmas tree has some of my hand knitted decorations on it and most of my family and friends have at least one as well as they made a lovely Christmas present too.
This one was rather fiddly to make as it is made up of five pieces that you then have to sew together. This was how the pattern was in the book but I made two of these and then sewed them together and stuffed to make it look more 3d. Unfortunately I haven’t got a photo of that one as it is now packed away in my Christmas box but will add it at a later date.
These were slightly harder to make as I hade to use five double pointed needles and knit in the round. The first one I did in green with two different shades of green in a stipy pattern and the second I did in the Fair Isle pattern.
Fair Isle Teardrop baubles
Believe it or not these were easier to knit than the round baubles and look more elegant if you ask me. These are both made using the Fair Isle pattern but in slightly different colours.
Oh Christmas tree!
Again I had to make this with double pointed needles on a round but it wasn’t as difficult as the round baubles and the end result is well worth it. A Christmas tree decoration to put on your Christmas tree. So ironic I love it.
This was knitted on normal needles but it was not difficult at all and makes a great addition to anyone’s tree.
(These are all available to order/buy/swop on my facebook page RuCreated)
Not a very flattering photo of me but it dose just about show you the long cardigan I knitted with chunky wool and big needles. It was my first attempt of a jumper, I know I don’t do things by half’s. It had a slip stitch pattern in it to create holes on the sides for decoration. It was great to do but I did make a slight mistake as one of the sleeves is slightly bigger than the other but it is still great for being cosy in.
This looks more complicated than it is because of the colour changing wool I used. It was actually a very simple little cardi.
This was another simple little cardi but the roses make it look more glam. These were great to make and make the simplest item look fab.
Here is another collection of some of the knitted item’s that I have already made.
One ball scarf!
A scarf made from one very expensive and specially designed ball of wool. All you had to do was knit and the wool did the rest. I made several of these and gave them away as gifts. It was a very rewarding.
Fingerless cable gloves!
These are fingerless gloves or mittens with a cable pattern to them and were not as hard as you would think once you get the hand of using a cable needle. I really quite enjoyed using the cable needle and it give you a very good pattern. Love these too, great for making a plain pair of gloves look more interesting or just great on their own.
A Halloween knit – Eyeballs!
A knitted bowl!
This was a very quick and simple make. Perfect for your rings and things.
Baby Bunny Booties!
AS soon as I sore the pattern of these in a magazine I had to make them and although these photo’s are in different colours they work really well in white. Both my children wore these when they were babies and they make great gifts.
This is my logo for my creatively made items and in this case I am show casing my knitted items. This is one of my hobbies and yes before you ask I do sell items via Face book and Royal mail. So if you are interested you can have a look on my face book page called “RuCreated” of course. So when ever you see this logo you will know that I am posting something that I have made myself.
As always I encourage you to LIKE and COMMENT on my posts but especially on these items as it will help me to understand what is popular and what is good and as I am trying to sell them these comments would really help me. Oh and before you think I am just trying to sell you my wears, I will add that all the money I get from these items all goes into a community group fund that will help towards making a communal dream come true for many.
