From the top I have started a first wash cloth to go with my soap. Lots of people asked about the soap, when I have made the other type, I will write a post. So far I have made the melt and pour type that was particularly easy, and I will move to the more complicated type next week. I'm intending to give everyone home made soap and cloths as gifts this year so I am starting early!
The glove is the first of the spiderman mitts. Having done the thumb hole wrong last week, I soon realised they were going to be far too small for either Thomas or Daniel. Last week whilst reading a fellow YOPper's post I was thinking there was no way I would attempt cutting into my knitting in the form of an afterthought heel that I hadn't planned before. However, when I realised the mitt wouldn't fit, I decided this was a way to do it - so I picked up the stitches either side of where I wanted the thumb hole and cut my knitting! And it worked - I now have a finished mitt that fits Daniel - I now have to build myself up to knit the second one.
Then on the far right is my Vianne - much as I like it I have never worn it as it is too short, so I have found the rest of the yarn and I am going to attempt picking up stitches and continuing the ribbing for a few more inches.
The last two are the start of my Whitby socks - the first installment of my Yorkshire sock club from the Knitting Goddess and my Hitofude, that I am enjoying a lot but feel may take me a lot of time!!
Lastly, it's been a while since I have done any sewing so I cut out the fabric for some pyjama bottoms that I have been meaning to do for a while and a dress - I will, hopefully get to sewing them next weekend.
