Creative Friday: My knitting setting

Thanks to Michael I now own a very shiny circular needle knitting set. I just love having quality products like this. 
I am now on the look out for a new circular knitting challenge.

Last year I was challenged by Kaye to knit some shorts. If you have been following us for a while, you might remember that this project took me a while to complete. It was definitely one of my most difficult design challenges

So at the moment I am thinking of warming up with a simple snood. 

I might then knit a jumper or another pair of shorts. Perhaps I will experiment with patterns, like this jumper from ASOS.

  1. I am planning to learn to knit in 2012!

    I love it when a challenge that has taken a while to complete gets finished, such a sense of accomplishment. Those shorts are amazing, I love them!

  2. Maybe you've already done this or discussed this, but I'm too lazy to dig through archives to find out; would you ever publish or sell your pattern for those shorts? I remember seeing photos somewhere and loving them, and tracing them back to here, and that's how I found your blog! I finished a knitted project a few weeks ago, and since then haven't been able to get excited about making anything. Shorts might be a good challenge...

  3. Ooooooooh Michael spoilt you! That jumper would be lovely, its a goer!

  4. omgg those shorts are such a dream! I wish I could knit :(

  5. The concept of knitting, for me, goes in one ear and immediately out the other. But my goodness, do I love these knitted shorts of yours. It doesn't matter how long they took, they look aaaamazing. I envy the patience it took to 1) learn how to knit, and 2) apply it with such skill (and style!).
