1st Test knitting almost done

So the test knitting of my first knitting pattern is almost done, I am very excited. I just finished testing size small, I think it looks good and I am happy with the result. One more test-knitting and soon I will be able to publish the pattern on Raverly.

Toilet Paper Cover – Crochet

I found some fun ideas for toilet paper cover but after I watched the film Pixels with my kids I had to go for the idea of the ghosts from the game PAC-MAN.

I used this as a guide, to get a quick idea how best to do this but I just made it without pattern as I was using different kinds of yarn and crochet needle size. There are many toilet paper cover patterns out there, free and payed versions, so I am sure I could have found one that fit for me but I just wanted to get started and not use endless amount of time to find the one that might fit.

As I have not found the pattern for sale anywhere nor the finished product for sale, at least not when I set out to make these myself. I then wrote down how I made these when I was asked for a pattern for these and could not refer to any patter or seller.

Here below you can find the way i did this, in Danish and in English, just scroll down do find the language you prefer. Remember to adjust this to your toilet-paper size.

Tunisian Crochet

Had to make a case for my Tunisian crochet hooks with wire. And of course I had to make the case front with a Tunisian crochet stitch…

No pattern, just had fun with it and hoped it would be long enough so that I could store all the Tunisian crochet hooks in it.

Finger gloves – Iron man style

So, my youngest son (8 years), is a superhero fan… and one of his favorites is Iron Man, after asking (nagging) me, for some time, to make Iron man finger gloves, I gave in…

I just used a pattern from Drops design English (Danish version) just for the gloves and then crochet the center, sewing that on and he was happy… but now he wants more, more gloves, socks and even knitted/crochet mask for ALL the superheros he loves.

Silly me to think that if he got these he would stop, I just poked the bear!!!

Ubbs…

Well… this happens when you THINK you set your washing mashing on the wool program… but it was just set to regular wash on 40°

😂🤪

Well I can only be glad that, when I made this design/idea, that I wrote it down as a pattern and I can make this pullover again, one day, after some time has passed. 😁
