I needed a pair of legwarmers for the cold arvos at our place through winter. These were a very easy and fast knit. Its a shame I played yarn chicken though, because I ran out of yarn about 8 stitches from the end of the bind off. Oh well, I'll just call this a signature :)

Sampler niddy noddy making mini-skeins of Wollmeise, originally uploaded by stitch-by-stitch.
I'm organising a Wollmeise mini-skein swap at the moment. It involves 7 people sending me one full 150g skein of Wollmeise each, me splitting them all evenly into 7 mini-skeins and then redistributing them back to the participant. So one donated skein gives them 7 mini-skeins of approx 20g each. This is perfect for colourwork.
So to make my job easier (I have to make 147 mini-skeins) I bought myself a sampler niddy noddy. How cute is it? It makes the cutest little 6" long mini-skein.

Another knitting finish. I was working on these in the background. Plain stockinette. Gotta love the mindlessness of it. It's a bit of a shame that they are too small for me though. And my mum doesn't like blue. Hmmmm.

Another 'Will Work For Yarn' FO. Thanks Vonraveller for knitting this up for me. I love it. So beautiful and soft. And a great shape/style to completely cover up the neck in these freezing Melbourne days/nights. Made using Eki Riva Supreme/Superbaby alpaca using up 2 full balls - one of each colour.
