Knitting yarns in craft shop
This is the yarn section of a big craft shop near where I live, and every time we are nearby, we generally go in and walk up and down all the yarn aisles, to see if we need to fill in any gaps in our colour supply.

Blue Parrot choosing some yarn
Here is Blue Parrot rifling through the knitting cupboard and he has decided that the rainbow one is the best. I think he might like a little rainbow scarf to wear round his shoulders. We always keep it all in lots of small zipper bags, so it does not get bobbly or dusty when someone is searching for a particular colour, and the little leftover bits stay with the main ball.

I am starting my Knitting section with some Christmas charts. As the lovely Christmas hats, socks and jumpers are not my size, I have put the best bits onto charts, so that I can make other things for me, Brown Teddy and Dino, and we can have our own colours. I would like to make a snowflake bag for my notebook and pencil for when I go out, or maybe to hold the phone.

CHRISTMAS KNITTING

All these could be put on the back of a mitten. You could just knit a square and sew it on existing mittens or a hat, and it would make them even warmer.

Snowflake 1 knitting    Snowflake 1 knitting chart
These snowflakes were on some slippers. You can see Dino wearing the slippers on my Diary page. The soles of these slippers did not last very long as they were very cheap, so I have saved the knitted top parts and washed them. I am going to cut two squares with a snowflake in the middle, and join them to make a small shoulder bag, just my size. I will need to find some dark red yarn to make a shoulder strap for it.

Snowflake 2 knitting  Snowflake 2 knitting chart
Here is a piece of Christmas sock. I think I prefer snowflakes against dark blue, like a winter sky. When the sock feet wear out, it is easy to cut off the foot and neaten up the long leg bit to make leg or arm/wrist warmers. I would never throw a good snowflake away!

Reindeer 1 knitting  Reindeer 1 knitting chart
This is part of a jumper. I have given the reindeer a bit more antler and a shorter tail, as real reindeer only have stumpy tails.

Reindeer 2 knitting  Reindeer 2 knitting chart
These are socks. I have had to make some guesses where all the stitches go, and I thought it would be better for him to have an eye as well. I think I would prefer the reindeer at each end of a long scarf, so that I can admire them more easily. I like the narrow green stripes which must be their reindeer moss.

Robin knitting  Robin knitting chart
The red and black on the robin could be done by embroidering stitches over the top, copying the way the yarn goes on the knitted stitch. I have put fewer stitches for his front leg, as real robins have very thin legs. I think I would like to add in some dots in front of him, as little things for him to eat, or maybe a few pink stitches like a worm!

Bow knitting  Bow knitting chart
This bow could be done all round a hat and I think pink or blue would be better than the dark grey.

Ipod or Phone Bag

Knitted Ipod or phone bag  Yellow Teddy with knitted Ipod or phone bag
Here is my Ipod bag, and there is room inside for the earphones and you can also get a small mobile phone in as well. It is knitted in Double Knitting yarn on 48 stitches in a circle like a sock, with 7 stitches of stocking stitch and 1 of moss stitch, six times every round. You just keep going until it is long enough for whatever is going to go in it. This bag also has two moss rows going across to make some dotty rectangles. The top edge is moss stitch. The top flap is done on half the stitches, decreasing at both ends of every row, to make a triangle. You make a button hole or button loop at the very tip. The bottom can be sewn together but it is much neater if the stitches are knitted together. This would look good in a very dark yarn, with some coloured embroidery in each of the rectangles.
