I’ve been knitting for years, but have never purchased a kit, that is the pattern and yarn together. I recently purchased the Drachenfels scarf kit from Craftsy. Continue reading “Drachenfels Scarf – satisfaction in a box”
My first knitted dog from the Knit Your Own Dog book. My review of the dog: cute with a bit of a ragamuffin personality! My review of the pattern: it was easy to follow, although I think it had one easy-to-remedy error. There are a lot of little pieces and the directions for assembling it all together were vague. I managed to fit it together as I thought it should be, but wasn’t really sure that was the right way at all. It is called a Red Setter in the book. Mine doesn’t look like the one in the book, but I used different yarn, and try as I may, I can’t get the hang of faces. I’ve got to redo this fellow’s. His nose is coming undone. I like him. He’s cute. Now everyone wants a dog from me. I will make some changes to the patterns to fit my knitting style better (less pieces) and to make it sturdier (incorporate pipe cleaners from legs into the body).
