So that is the news – the computer is back

by on Jun.15, 2011, under Blog, Patterns available on Etsy

I haven’t had a functioning computer for some months and am catching up. Today I have checked Google Analytics for the first time in many months.

This site has had 18,898 visitors since 19 November 2009 when analytics was set up. That is 19 months with an average monthly visitor count a smidgeon less than 1,000 per month. In the last few months where I have not been adding to the website due to the lack of computer facilities to do so the average has still been just a smidgeon over 1,025 per month.

Thank you so much for still looking.

Just for fun:

My fingerless gloves

by on Sep.09, 2010, under Blog, Patterns available on Etsy

I just can’t wait to say it – and I still have the medium length gloves to complete.

BUT I love this pattern and I cannot believe that I have actually created something using a lace pattern, even a very simple lace pattern, and then it is for arms! I don’t create for arms!

But these are so much fun, I know what I shall be knitting for wintery presents – MY FINGERLESS GLOVEs or GAUNTLETs. The name is a very personal thing, it could be a glove, a mitten, gauntlet or lacy thingymebob to keep hand and arms warm in a stylish fashion, or just arm and hand warmers.

So for the short length – only 40 rows or to the length you want x 2 – as most people have two hands. Not at all daunting for the quick Christmas present.

My etsy listing for these gloves At only US $2.50 till 19th September. Pattern available from Monday 13th.

My short length PURPLE version is a one skein pattern, and will become a favourite. Wear it one way and you have the curve of the fan over your hand, turn it one turn and the narrow rib at the back sits along the thumb and the fan curves are now over your hand sides, as it were. Perfect for a chilly day, easy and quick to knit and oh so “In fashion” right now. Make a pair to match your various clothing colour themes.

So you live in a warmer climate! then use a cotton or bamboo, or other cooler fibre, as I have done with the full length green version. These are stunningly stylish, young and oh so cool – being cotton; and oh so cool – being fashionable.

Wikipedia: A glove (Middle English from Old English glof) is a garment covering the hand. Gloves have separate sheaths or openings for each finger and the thumb; if there is an opening but no covering sheath for each finger they are called “fingerless gloves”. Fingerless gloves with one large opening rather than individual openings for each finger are sometimes called gauntlets.

latest pattern – Multicolour and Mixed fibre Capelet

by on Jul.12, 2010, under Blog, Patterns available on Etsy

This Multicolour Capelet is easy to knit – being all garter stitch. The shaping is created by knitting short rows.

It will be great worn over jeans and a Tee or Camisole, or over a party number. Warm and interesting with unique colour and fibre combinations. There will never be another exactly like the one you knit. It is a great pattern for creating a piece from your stash yarns.

Or you can knit the capelet in one colour only in a delicious sensuous yarn created to wear for that very special occaison or as a gift for a special person in your life.

I have added my Shell pattern to uniqueboutiqueknits on Etsy

by on May.03, 2010, under Blog, Patterns available on Etsy, Technical Information

turquoise-top.jpg This is a sweet and easy shell to create in one colour or as I have done in many colours and yarns. It is knitted in the round to the armholes, and is a great starter piece for someone wishing to experiement with colours and yarns. It is also a great stash buster.

If you are not sure about a rolled edge at the bottom I do include instructions for a ribbed edge as an option. I am a firm believer in options when spending your hard earned monies on patterns.

The shell in the photograph was created for the “Colour Play” exhibition held in Auckland New Zealand in 2007

Click through to the Etsy pattern listing here. The pattern will be provided via email as a PDF once the US$5.00 payment is received through Paypal. I will include with the pattern general information about knitting in the round, using many colours and yarns in simple stripes and/or simple intarsia, plus the option for knitting with a ribbed band if you prefer.
